Mackintosh with lightweight Loro Piana water resistant wool fabric (stock pics). Tried the rubber ones but they are too stiff and sweaty but this should be more breathable.

Water resistant, not too heavy, longer so more classic than the current short mac trend. But in this fabric does it fail as a classic raincoat and fail as warm winter jacket…

Length feels slightly 'Fox Mulder' on me but is probably around that pictured.

It's not that long. You clearly like it as do I. It's quite smart. Not really a proper raincoat nor a super warm winter coat, which was the brief? I bet you'd end up wearing it tons regardless.

Thanks chaps. The brief was a traditional raincoat but not ready to drop £6/700 on a Grenfell or Mackintosh. Might be a bit smarter than I actually want Laughing out loud

I think I got blinded by the collab. I'll focus my budget elsewhere!
