Hi Rob bit disappointed thought we would hear your tales it just not pack a mac it's plastic and pvc been Mac fan I am used to disappointed

Comments by Rob on 6th January 2016  

It was nice to read this comment Susan because I realise that some people really want to hear about the original Pakamac raincoats like the ones in the advert here but unfortunately we don't have any and I thought this was perhaps why our comments were deleted.

Comments by Susan on 5th January 2016  

I love reading the comments here even when they are only slightly related to Pakamacs. It's lovely knowing that the regular contributors are Pakamac fans keeping memories and related enjoyment alive.

All this rain and floods only seen one old lady wearing a plastic mac

Comments by Rob on 3rd January 2016  

Sorry, I meant thank you Brian. I think your advice has worked and we are really happy to contribute if it is interesting for other people.

Comments by Rob on 3rd January 2016  

Thank you G and Robin. I thought perhaps they were deleted because they were a bit boring but you are always very positive G. I wanted to say to you and Elizabeth that unfortunately we can't remember what we posted about umbrellas in 2014 but I did find my comment from 9th October saying it was nice to read about Robin's trip to Ireland because it reminded us of our holidays there. Please say if it is the umbrellas or our pakamacs and our holidays in the rain you would like to hear more about and we will try again.

Hi Rob, not sure what the problem is but your comments do not appear. I'm just seeing a blank message.

Maybe it's the apostrophe character? Or double quote? Sometimes if you copy/paste from another app, the characters get corrupt and the message is blank. Try stripping any special characters and try again, or, email me your comment and I'll figure out why your messages are not appearing. Thanks.

Rob email Brian he will get to the root of the problam

Comments by Rob on 3rd January 2016  

Thank you G and Elizabeth I have tried to post three comments for you but with no luck.

Hi Rob one blip and you throw your toys out of the pram

Comments by G on 1st January 2016  

Rob it was probably just a glitch let's hear from you and Beth

Comments by Elizabeth Anne on 1st January 2016  

Hi Rob, good to see you back again and all the best for the New Year.

I remember noticing a while back that for a time comments various people had posted, mostly you and Beth but also Scotty, and one of my own also (which I recall no details of), were being deleted seemingly at random. These included your half of a perfectly civil discussion we were having about clear umbrellas....with my answers untouched. Those posts still appear in sequence all around Oct 2014, blank except for the poster's name and the date. At the time I put it down to just a blip in the system, and with no better information now I suppose I still do. But it did seem odd.

Comments by Rob on 31st December 2015  

Hello G yes we did write comments but they were deleted so we stopped.

Comments by G on 30th December 2015  

Hi Elizabeth Anne welcome back hope you will write many more comments and Rob are you the same Rob and Beth that used to write do not understand that where have you both been welcome back again any old friends please lets hear from you all.

Comments by Rob on 29th December 2015

Comments by Frank Barnard on 29th December 2015  

Happy new year to all mac lovers

Comments by Elizabeth Anne on 29th December 2015  

Hi in Australia most of us wore nylon raincoats in high school in the 1970s, they obviously didn't come from M&S although I think they were imported from England, they were bright colors, light and comfortable, and fairly hard-wearing as I remember. I've lately started wearing them again after many years relying on the 'good' coat and the brolly.

Comments by G on 23rd December 2015  

Merry Christmas to you all hope your comments keep coming and people who have not for some time please start again

Comments by Frank Barnard on 21st December 2015  

HI Janice my first wife had one only mac she ever liked.

Comments by Janice on 19th December 2015  

Susan the MS macs also had unique buttons I could always tell buy the buttons it was a MS mac I think other macs had there own as well.

Comments by Susan on 16th December 2015  

I don't remember those nylon macs at all Janice. It's probably because I didn't start shopping there until the 1990s. I always bought Rainstar nylon macs from John Lewis. There was a branch of Fenwick's that I visited frequently. They sold traditional nylon macs with an extremely feminine style of button that was quite unique.

Comments by Anne on 15th December 2015  

HI Janice i had a couple of them macs they were very good macs

Comments by Janice on 14th December 2015  

Hi does anyone remember the nylon macs from marks and spencer I had one that lasted years

Comments by Frank Barnard on 10th December 2015

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

Comments by Gail on 3rd November 2015  

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.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 28th October 2015  

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.

Comments by Frank Barnard on 9th October 2015
