Mackintosh is a brand of modern heritage built on true craftsmanship and a two hundred year history. There are few fashion brands that can claim to have an entire genre of clothing named after them, but Mackintosh is one of them.
In 1823, Charles Macintosh patented and developed the now iconic rubberised waterproof fabric, and thereafter the original Mackintosh coat was made. At that time it was a very significant innovation, since it was the first water repellent fabric ever to exist.
The rubber/cotton bonding technique has been developed over generations in their Scotland based factory. Today, Mackintosh is a firmly established luxury brand that combines updated technology with traditional techniques to create the modern-day ‘Mac’. The brand takes great pride in making all its outerwear in the UK.
A symbol of quality, craftsmanship and British heritage, a Mackintosh rubberised coat is a wardrobe perennial that will never date.
A 'Mackintosh' is characterised by a firm structure that molds to the body over time. The elegant and minimalist coats are fully waterproof. It's very simple, if you spend a day in the rain, you stay bone-dry.
Every genuine Mackintosh garment is carefully hand made by skilled craftsman who have spent years perfecting the techniques required to make a genuine Mackintosh coat.
