Mackintosh Jacket | Très Bien

March 14, 2012

As spring approaches, don’t get caught in the rain without proper gear to keep your menswear high and dry. If you’ve ever been caught in a downpour on your way to an important meeting, you know the value of a quality waterproof raincoat. For that, look no further than Mackintosh to fulfill all of your inclement weather needs.

From Très Bien, “For over a century and a half, British brand Mackintosh has been laughing in the face of rain, manufacturing arguably the highest quality waterproof raincoats in the world. The brand’s rich history has seen them produce outerwear for soldiers during both World Wars, uniform for the birth of British Rail, through to runway pieces for leading fashion houses such as Chanel, Hermès and Louis Vuitton.

Since their revival in the mid-nineties, Mackintosh have re-established themselves as an upmarket brand in their own right, and recent years have seen memorable collaborations with forward thinking minds such as Junya Watanabe and Kitsunè, as well the opening of a London flagship store designed by Masamichi Katayama and his world renowned Wonderwall design team. When you think of the quintessential raincoat, you think Mackintosh, and there are many aspects that go into constructing a timeless Mackintosh jacket.

All garments are made using their famous rubberised cotton fabric that is put through a patented welt, seal and coating process. Furthermore, backing tape is placed behind all seams to ensure complete waterproofing, and all pockets and linings are glue fixed and hand finished in their Scottish factory.  Mackintosh collections feature all of the tradition and craftsmanship from the brand’s much celebrated history, all the while updating classic designs with a contemporary essence, incorporating new and exciting silhouettes in an array of both classic and refreshing colours. For those that desire the genuine article in today’s throwaway society, there is none finer than the true Mackintosh raincoat.”
