Mackintosh coats are a hard nut for me. I love the way they look and the structure, but they get *hot* and damp, because they do not breath at all. In the end, I went for a gore tex mac style coat made by barbour. It has all the technical benefits while maintaining that trad feeling.

Updating and old thread with a new question.

Does this mean trying to get mine altered is a bad idea?  I'm 5'6"/~168cm and I got this mac on sale from <www.SidMashburn.com> (6 months ago) and the sleeves are too long and it feels oversized.  I was thinking of having the sleeves shortened and asking if something can be done about the fit.   Are these sort of jackets supposed to fit like this?  I think it would fit well over an overcoat but over a regular suit jacket its too big.  I also think this was a medium size.  Or maybe this is how they're supposed to fit?  I've got a a standard sport coat on under the jacket in this photo.  Thanks!

Another folly of buying something on sale, thinking you are getting a good deal.

In reality you just wasted a bunch of money.

Jet, good idea. Unfortunately I don't have insurance so the jacket alone wouldn't pay for the test AND new spectacles....

Anyone tried one of the Mackintosh cotton Dunkeld's?

 

I was put off by the rubberised fabric making them unbearable to wear on the tube, so like the idea of cotton. Also, I wouldn't be wearing it over a suit so like the slimmer cut (although the one in this pic is maybe pushing it...)

I've got one of their non-rubberised cotton coats from a couple of seasons back - nicely made but will only cope with very light short showers. Even light but persistent rain penetrates pretty quickly.

Can anyone comment on how the Dalkeith fits? I wear a size 36r suit and small in most outerwear I own.

Bonus question, does anyone know a store that stocks Dalkeith in size 36 (with a liner)... I miss the days when the Mackintosh website was useful (and let you customize your own coat.
