Mackintosh’s storied heritage dates back to 1823 at the dawn of the industrial revolution, when Scottish chemist Charles Macintosh invented a new method of waterproofing cotton. His discovery came to revolutionise textile technology and outerwear design with the birth of the Mackintosh coat, or “Mac” as it became known. The new waterproof fabric attracted the attention of the British aristocracy who were quick to adopt it for riding coats, while the British Army and railway service commissioned trench and car coats, laying the foundation for international success.
