THE MUST-HAVE TRENCH
We’ve stripped back the classic mac to its key features making it the season’s essential jacket
If necessity is the mother of invention, then boy oh boy is it not a surprise that the mackintosh was invented in Britain. Famed for our innate understanding of rain owing to our less than reliable climate, we had to figure out a way to keep it off. And so the mac was born, a lighter weight jacket coated with a finish that repels water. This autumn we’ve refined this signature taupe style by stripping it back to a minimal trench. A hidden hood is handy in a downpour while its light padding makes it ideal over a shirt right now or a thicker jumper once summer has properly given up the ghost.
