If you follow me on Twitter (and why wouldn’t you?) then you’d have seen that I recently bought a Mackintosh. The Mac has been a piece of outerwear I’ve lusted after for ages, but I don’t suit a typical long one as I look something like a cross between a child in his fathers coat and a sex offender. Step forwards the Dunoon with its shorter length and slightly more fitted cut, which was just the ticket.
Mine is the non-hooded variety but if you want extra protection then END have recently taken delivery of the latest iteration, complete with hood and in a selection of great colours. The coat itself remains true to its 1823 origins, being constructed from rubberised cotton with fully taped interior seams, which in turn makes for a completely water and windproof garment.
The sparse detailing, covered placket (with only the top button exposed), pair of front slash pockets and simple silhouette make it a coat that goes with pretty much anything whilst keeping you dry. And if the weather carries on like it has been lately mine’s going to be getting an awful lot of use. If you fancy any of the above, go to END’s website here: Mackintosh.
