The Mackintosh story takes place on the cobbled streets of Glasgow in the early 1800s. Tired of getting soaked every other day, a young clerk named Charles Mackintosh set about trying to find a way to make jackets that didn’t let rain through. As a keen amateur scientist, he soon found that by coating cotton with dissolved rubber, a waterproof cloth could be made, and thus, the Mackintosh was born.
Whether you’re interested in the finer points of rubber polymer conversion or not, you can’t deny the Mackintosh overcoat is definitely worthy of a place in the outerwear hall of fame. And if you’re after something a bit lighter, they also make some rather great non-rubber jackets too. Sleek, slick and super smart, these are just the thing for waltzing around town pretending you’re a piano mover.
