There were plenty of warm sunny summer days that my parents would dress me warm for.Others would be running around in summer dresses and I would be wearing my Mac and Wellingtons, often with the hood up and a scarf.In the meantime, I will keep searching for those cherished gems from Chadderton....... I have just discovered the site and have very much enjoyed reading all the comments with interest bringing back old memories of when I was taken to get fitted for school rainwear or my sisters .
However,such items do turn up regularly on e-bay,and they are almost invariably in excellent condition.
Alternatively,you would do well to consider "Stay Dry Rainwear".
Love the comment from Jamie as i recall pakamacs at first had hoods. would ask mum to let me off wearing my plastic mac n hood when fine but to no avail , Bev.
From early age had dreams of being made to wear plastic mac with hood . Hi I have not made a entry on this site for some time now as l felt it seemed to be drifting away from its main object (plastic Pakamacs) l have been adding comments right from 2007 when it first started. There is one person in particular who l feel is very similar to myself and that is Brian l have read is many entries andlike me he goes back to when it really all started. l would love to have a nice long chat with you and l have so much to share.
When plastic macs reappeared with a vengeance, in the late 70s, the attached hoods were one of the most attractive features.
For my part, I love attached hoods as they make the items so much more alluring.
They stock excellent,low-priced nylon macs,in both navy and black.
They have both zips and popper fastening and attached hoods. But today I had a beautiful sighting-an authentic navy blue nylon mac, pulsating with the wearer's every move. Didn't get chance to speak, so there was no liaison, but plenty of inspiration!
They give the mac and the wearer a beautifully "chunky" appearance. My parents were rather strict when I was growing up, and one of their rules was that a pakamac would be my summer coat.
