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 Janice on 14th 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

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

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

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 

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'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.
