I think rainwear enthusiasm is really coming into its own now, and I like to think that we lucky ones, who knew and wore the original Pakamacs, started it all. As always, best wishes to all our regulars.

I too so like wearing genuine Pakamac raincoats along with plastic pants, with conventional clothing of course, and have no problems about what others may think.
After all it is just a raincoat, albeit a rather nice one, and over many years no one has ever blinked an eye about my attire. So please do contact me if interested in my special liking for plastic.

I fail to see your frustration frankly, Frank. Where' your serious contribution to the discussion, then?

Comment by: Hugh on 5th August 2019 at 09:34

Me too, Beverley. It is important to broadcast the fact. Always carry a spare too, just in case....

Comment by: Beverly mr on 4th August 2019 at 08:33

I never go out without a mackintosh. Even in hot dry days. I carry my mackintosh so it can be seen. So anyone that cares to notice they can see i am a mackintosh wearing person.

Comment by: Hugh on 3rd August 2019 at 18:11

Well done Susan and Beverley for keeping nylon macks in the public consciousness. If only we were geographically closer, we could go on a wonderful mackintosh walk together.

Comment by: Beverly mr on 1st August 2019 at 21:13

just had few days by sea. Tues day windy with lot of showers. So had day in nylon mackintosh with hood up. Kept mackintosh on with hood up including sunny periods.

Comment by: Susan on 1st August 2019 at 15:31

I don't know Hugh, there have been some lovely downpours lately. I spent a lovely full day out last week, in heavy rain, wearing one of my Genuine Pakamac Plastic Raincoats all the time, shopping. The rest of the time, I've never been without one of my beloved navy blue nylon macs, just in case.

Comment by: Hugh on 31st July 2019 at 10:01

It seems that posts on here, like the weather, have been running dry, of late. Let's hope the recent change brings out the mackintoshes.

Comment by: Beverly mr on 10th July 2019 at 08:23

starting the day wearing my red nylon mackintosh as a house coat. Nothing over it if fam come down not going to worry this is my house.

Comment by: Beverly mr on 9th July 2019 at 08:11

Having a bit of time in my yellow plastic mackintosh while family in bed.have house coat over mackintosh in case fam come down. In a while will do my ironing in my bedroom then can get house coat off and work in just my mackintosh and bra.

Comment by: Brian Humphries on 8th July 2019 at 15:53

Any time, Hugh. Rainwear enthusiasts, and Pakamac enthusiasts in particular, deserve the best, and ONLY the best.

Comment by: Hugh on 5th July 2019 at 09:30

Ah, poetry, and in my honour too. Thank you, Brian.

Comment by: Beverly mr on 5th July 2019 at 08:28

well done . I have family with me a present. However when alone i always start the day in mackintosh. Always wearing a mackintosh when viewing this or any rainwear page. Beverly

Comment by: Brian Humphries on 4th July 2019 at 20:00

Good for you!
Mac-clad Hugh,
In your navy blue!

Comment by: Hugh on 3rd July 2019 at 15:11

Well the weather, of late, has not been great for the likes of us discerning gentlemen, keen to don a mackintosh at the slightest hint of rain.

I'm sure that others amongst you adapt to this by dressing at home. I, for one, am writing this, at my desk, enveloped in a navy blue nylon mackintosh.

Comment by: Brian Humphries on 28th June 2019 at 21:41

Me too. I have three wardrobes in the bedroom, and all of them hangers, chockers full of plastic or nylon macs. Again, no better way to start the day.

Comment by: Beverly mr on 28th June 2019 at 08:36

I have 2 plastic mackintoshes hanging on outside of my wardrope. So they are first thing i see when i wake. Is good way to start my day.

Rainwear beats football any day.
