Post image for Mackintosh Duncan raincoat

One thing missing from my outerwear wardrobe is a good quality raincoat. This khaki-coloured number – rather bizarrely named “Duncan” – from Mackintosh (via J. Crew) looks the business, though at $800 I’ve got some saving up to do before I can actually afford it.

If you haven’t got loads of money to spare, this raincoat, or even this one, are good-value substitutes.

Interestingly, here in Japan – which is probably the world’s biggest market for expensive raincoats – Mackintosh have a licensed brand called Mackintosh Philosophy. Philosophy shops sell all kinds of clothing, from ties to women’s dresses. They sell raincoats too, but if I’m going to get a Mackintosh I should probably save up a bit more cash and get a “proper” one.

There’s also the issue of fit. I’ve always found that coats of this kind are, in reality, far boxier than even their catalogue photos suggest. Can any Mackintosh owners shed some light on this particular model?

I have to agree, if I were to get a Mackintosh, I’d spurge on one. Like a trench coat, it’s a timeless piece that should be owned by every man.

Exactly. One will probably last for a good seven to ten years, which works out much cheaper than buying a new one every year or two.
