For almost 200 years, Mackintosh has been one of the world’s influential coat-makers. The brand's relationship with outwear started at the dawn of the industrial industry when Scotsman Charles Macintosh developed a new way of waterproofing fabric. Since then, the brand has become an expert in manipulating rubberised fabric, and the dyed rubber, sandwiched between two layers of fabric, is the core element of any classic Mackintosh coat.
