The trench coat underlined often as a must-have in the wardrobe. Neat to wildly different styles and in various weather. Admittedly, it is hard to find a more diverse and useful garment. It would possibly be mackintoshen then.

1823-Charles Macintosh invented a process for bringing together cotton and rubber. The result was a completely water resistant fabric that even today among a plethora of modern functional materials stand out strongly. The original is made after a process, similar to Charles Macintosh, still in Scotland of Mackintosh Rainwear. Over time, even the garment’s design has been refined, including taped seams to further protect the wearer from the rain.

As the trench coat, the name come to categorize a particular model with a variety of interpretations, rather than the original material. What especially characterizes the model is the hidden closure and the otherwise unadorned form. In many ways, the polar opposite of the trench coat which has a plethora of details, many totally useless for modern use.Typically, the model is also slightly shorter, making it slightly more easy to wear than the traditional trench coat.

It is perhaps mainly in spring and autumn this garment comes to their rights. Not only through its water-repellent characteristics but also its shape. The flexible design makes the mackintoshen look as good with a suit that sweater underneath. Length cover the entire suit without reducing the perceived duration, longer coats have a tendency to do.
