The Huntsman Mackintosh in Fawn from Cordings of Piccadilly, Made in Scotland

Photo by Salt Water New England

There are many days when I feel that wearing a Fawn riding Mackintosh is as dressed up as I ever want to be.  They set a crisp, polished tone with not just dash but actual intrepidness.  

Mackintosh coats are made in a factory outside of Glasgow, Scotland,  using the same process first used in the early 19th century. Each coat is made entirely by hand and by one person start to finish.

The classic Mackintosh coat is made of two layers of cotton bonded together with rubber which is then dyed to perfectly match the outer cotton layers.  They are sewn, sealed and lapped by a rubber solution applied by finger, thus ensuring the garments are waterproof.

Originally for riding, one could put their legs through these leg straps so it didn't flap about.

Single Breasted, Concealed Placket and Slanted Pockets

  2. Can you tell me where you got your sweater vest? I have a hard time finding any for women and I've outgrown the ones I have, more's the pity. Thanks!

    1. I do not know where Muffy got her excellent sweater vest, but O'Connell's offers them for women.

  4. Very nice looking. I had one but it is too humid to wear it in the South.
