The colour was particularly striking, and was only equalled when Pakamac brought out their new range in 1977. So, there is another piece of waterproof trivia, and there will be more to come.
In the meantime, I will keep searching for those cherished gems from Chadderton....... I have just discovered the site and have very much enjoyed reading all the comments with interest bringing back old memories of when I was taken to get fitted for school rainwear or my sisters .
We waterproof enthusiasts must stick together and share as many experiences as possible. Jeff has mentioned the possibility of displaying my items in a museum-again a wonderfully creative idea.
My great friend/contact/near-partner, Susan, has not only marvellous wardrobes of plastic and nylon macs, but also a wonderfully comprehensive knowledge of such items.
For my part, I love attached hoods as they make the items so much more alluring.
