I couldn't find a thread dedicated simply to photographs of, and adverts for, vintage raincoats, trenchcoats and mackintoshes etc. So I thought I would start one.

No modern coats or reproductions please.

(N.B. I know there will be some cross over with what are technically lightweight topcoats, but it's to always easy to tell from old photographs. And since there's no thread specifically for them, I don't think we need to worry)

Here's a selection to start:

David Farrar in Freida (1947):

British Army Officer's rubberized Mackintosh ("Riding mac"). Allegedly from 1937, but I'd say a little later than that?

When a chap starts posting images of 1970s clothes it's definitely time to stop and go to bed.....
