Mackintosh dates back to 1823 and the invention of a rubberised cloth. Even today people still refer to a raincoat as a “mackintosh”, although today the brand is very exclusive. All Mackintosh outerwear is made in Britain. Rubberised and non-rubberised coats for men and women. Traditional Weatherwear Ltd. is the old name for the Mackintosh company and is now used to sell their made in China range of clothing which is deceptively labelled with a Union Flag and the word Scotland (albeit next to the small made in China label). Mackintosh / Traditional Weatherwear Limited is now owned by a Japanese company.
