The first rubberised coats were marketed in 1824, revolutionising outerwear. Fifteen years later, when John Charles Cordings opened his first store in The Strand, he immediately saw their potential. He worked with Charles Macintosh to design an exclusive collection of practical and handsome styles for use on horseback and for the increasing number of motorcar drivers.
