Gail, it's gone now from BBC iPlayer but it is on YouTube. Search for 'Marilyn Monroe church' or 'Eyesight to the Blind'.

Hi Susan what chanel was Tommy on please.

Comments by Susan on 29th October 2015  

I'm just watching the rock opera "Tommy". I'm pretty sure the plastic mac worn by Ann Margret, about 26 minutes into the film, is a genuine Pakamac. I have had a number of the exact same style, they were especially precious to me. Ann Margret's is pristine.

I think Seti has more chance of finding Aliens than women wearing plastic macs

Comments by Gail on 22nd October 2015  

Hi Frank I have seen them Capes one for Xmas if Santa is kind

Comments by Susan on 22nd October 2015  

I recently watched a TV programme about the 'Cold War' period in Europe during the 60s. What a wonderful sight it was with so many guys in both plastic macs and nylon macs plus loads and loads of ladies wearing nylon macs in a delightful array of colours. It just confirmed to me just how real my memories are of those days.

Hi Frank there are plenty of women wearing macs of all kinds I think its time for you to go to spec savers.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 1st August 2015  

Hi wet July and not one mac to be seen really sad

Comments by Susan on 17th July 2015   http://www.plasticmacs.co.uk/

Agnes, a simple search for 'plastic mac' on eBay brings up lots of the styles of jackets I now see frequently. I would never class a jacket as a mac but maybe it's a generation thing.

Comments by Agnes on 16th July 2015  

HI Susan some of them jackets are quite long saw a woman of my age wearing one any idea who sells them

Comments by Agnes on 14th July 2015  

Ken quite right people should keep it clean and no bullies this a pac a mac site.

Comments by Susan on 14th July 2015   http://www.plasticmacs.co.uk/

My observations on plastic jackets are purely my hope that they are an indication that Pakamac styles of mac could make a return. Actually, Pakamac did produce rain jackets.

Comments by Ken on 13th July 2015  

Hi I am on Franks side Brian was getting a bit lurid and Colin have you got a woman or is it just cartoons for you.

Comments by Colin Porter on 11th July 2015  coleport39@gmail.com 

Well said BJ.

Frank is the antithesis of 'Think positive' and to stop pitying his hard luck because he can't find a woman who'll do what he wants.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 11th July 2015  

BJ you have the wrong Brian its a pac a mac site the clue is in the name and its not a playground pick a fight site .

Comments by BJ on 10th July 2015  

Frank it's Brian's site so he even more than anyone can talk about the price of sardines on here if he so chooses....it's not as though you have ever done much for the site besides whinge whenever anybody else makes a contribution.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 9th July 2015  

Hi Brian this a plastic mac and nylon site not rubber macs or Jackets and your flirting with Susan is going to frighten the horses.

Comments by Brian Humphries on 6th July 2015  martinhumphries382@btinternet.com 

Sue, it WILL happen. You WILL get one of these plastic jackets, possibly more, and model them SUPERBLY. I may get one, or more, for my own wardrobes. And let's hope the SBR dream comes true too. Always good to hear from you.

Comments by Susan on 6th July 2015   http://www.plasticmacs.co.uk/

Over the last two days Brian, I have seen two different plastic jackets on separate women. Definitely a fashion statement.

Comments by Brian Humphries on 4th July 2015  martinhumphries382@btinternet.com 

As regards buying an SBR rubber mac for Susan, the thought is always there, but the logistics are not, as Susan knows. However, I hope the barriers can be eventually dropped.
Incidentally, Sue, I saw another of those plastic jackets this afternoon, and I thought of you immediately. I hope we discover who retails them. There are similar jackets advertised on e-bay-could these be the ones?

Comments by Roy on 30th June 2015  

hi Brian lets hear from you did you buy a sbr mackintosh or a pac a mac for Susan

Comments by Ken on 27th June 2015  

Hi Brian have you got Susan a mackintosh yet

Comments by Frank Barnard on 27th June 2015  

hi maybe we should say if you want a six pack wear a mac or do not put yourself on the rack wear a mac.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 25th June 2015  

Hi if all the women in the UK read Jane comments about using up calories when walking in a plastic mac may be many more would wear them.

Comments by Susan on 22nd June 2015   http://www.plasticmacs.co.uk/

Do you know, Brian, I have always wanted an SBR mackintosh, but never had one. However if the choice was between a plastic Pakamac or SBR, the Pakamac would win every time. When PVC macs were easily found, I was in the checkout queue with a plastic mac in it's distinctive Pakamac logo bag.

Comments by Brian Humphries on 16th June 2015  martinhumphries382@btinternet.com 

Nice compliment, Frank, thanks very much!! I will try and post more.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 16th June 2015  

Hi Brian your comments about macs are like a tonic more please

Comments by Brian Humphries on 10th June 2015  martinhumphries382@btinternet.com 

I think I know what see-through plastic jackets Susan has written about. Sue, I do hope you will purchase one (more than one, perhaps!), wear it and post it on Flickr, as you would model it superbly-as you do all waterproof items.
I would love to buy you an SBR rubber mac......

Comments by Jeff on 7th June 2015  

Hello Jane, what a great pleasure to chat with you; did you say you were one of the ladies on the Noel Edmunds show wearing your floral macs ? Yes, walking around Saddleworth in my plastic mac certainly burns off the calories but they are soon regained after a few pints of real ale in the excellent pubs in the area. Looking forward to walking around Blackpool in October, hope it rains. Regards, Jeff.

Comments by Jane Maxfield on 5th June 2015  

Hi Jeff its been a long time but i have done a saddleworth walk you can burn a lot of calories walking in a plastic mac

Comments by Frank Barnard on 4th June 2015  

Hi Susan yes I seen a few pity they were not the long macs still its a start

Comments by Jeff on 4th June 2015  

Hello Susan, I was in the Saddleworth area last Friday for the Whit Friday walks. As it was raining I was wearing my see-through Jeantex Toni plastic mac. I saw four ladies wearing see-through plastic jackets, one with a white lace design (would that be Top Shop ?), another had a gold shimmer to it and the other two ladies had semi-see-through natural jackets which I think may have been from Primark. I also saw another young lady keeping dry by wearing a long see-through plastic mac with a drawstring hood. As well as enjoying myself wearing my own plastic mac, some really good sightings.

Comments by Susan on 3rd June 2015   http://www.plasticmacs.co.uk/

Has anyone else noticed the short see-thru plastic jackets that seem to have gained a degree of popularity with younger women? I've seen a few on ebay but I've been surprised to see them being worn by women out shopping too, in different parts of the UK. They are reminiscent of a style popular in the late 70s, not some horrid manifestation of a plastic poncho. I'd wear one myself.

Comments by ColinPorter on 1st June 2015  

Hi Frank - so you know where to go for a holiday next time.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 30th May 2015  

Hi Colin thanks but I like to see the real Mccoy
