Mackintosh Dunoon raincoat

August 29, 2012

It’s time to start looking for a new coat. Whilst it’s true that the temperatures in the south are still pretty high, that’s tempered with the fact it keeps lashing it down regularly. And if it’s a waterproof raincoat you’re after then you probably won’t find better than one from Scotland’s Mackintosh.

The Dunoon raincoat is one of the label’s most recognisable and popular designs and is shown here in their striking camel/jaffa colourway. A fully water and wind-proof piece, it’s impeccable constructed by hand in Mackintosh’s Scottish factory from the rubberised cotton the brand is renowned for.

With carefully considered features that include underarm ventilating eyelets, a pair of front slant pockets, corduroy collar (that can also be worn up with storm flap), covered placket with exposed top button, rear vent and hand-glued, rolled and pressed seams, every detail of the coat has been carefully considered to keep the elements at bay.

It’s a beautiful piece and one that would keep you dry for decades. If you fancy one, it’s available to but now from York’s Superdenim here. For more information on the brand and to find your nearest stockist,  go to their website here: Mackintosh.

    That’s none to shabby is it. Along with the S.E.H Kelly Ventile we’re being spoilt on the raincoat front lately.

    Just clicked on the link. Although the Mackintosh does come in at quite a price in comparison! 😉

    Lovely looking raincoat but I’m always wary of breathability issues with rubberised materials.
