Mackintosh Outerwear - Page 3
Updating and old thread with a new question.
Actually the Mackintosh coats stand up better to rain and snow than most jackets made out of technical materials because in addition to the material being 100% waterproof, they take extraordinary care to ensure that the seams don't let in water. Apparently you have to serve a three year apprenticeship at the factory before they will allow you to actually make a coat.
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!
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.
