Re: Raincoat on ITV This Morning Show (UK only)

It won't let me watch it, something about problems with 'crossdomain' comes up, but I can watch the adverts before it!

Re: C&A stores in UK in the 60s to 80s

I have so many memories of C&A stores, sometimes just to walk through the store and glance at the big rack of multi coloured plastic macs would get me excited. My most vivid memory is being with my girlfriend in the Guildford store. The deal was, as it usually was, I would buy her a new dress or som...

Posting taking a long time?

When I post on this forum it seems to take a minute or two for the post to load and sometimes '508 resource limit reached' has come up. It would appear from some posts being repeated one or two others have had this problem?

Tao Wickrath in clear raincoat

Really good to see 'celebrities' like Tao Wickrath (never heard of her, doubt if I would forget a name like that!) in Florida yesterday wearing a clear raincoat. If you Google her name there are other similar pictures. Phil http://www.celebsfirst.com/tao-wickrath-steps-transparent-raincoat-enjoys-wa...

Re: Looking good for pvc fashion

Having been to two major events when it has been raining over the weekend, saw thousands of people but sadly the number of women wearing 'proper' PVC raincoats was probably less than ten. I'll never understand the girls and young women today, they would rather get soaking wet than wear any kind of r...

Totally agree Merv, a smelly old dog smoking must be the biggest turn-off ever, I wish I hadn't looked!

'Bread' sitcom

As we seem to be going through old British sitcoms, here is 'Bread' featuring Aveline (Melanie Hill) helping out on the allotment wearing a clear/white spotted plastic mac. I believe it may have appeared in a later episode?

Re: Gladys Pugh in 'Hi-De-Hi' wearing a light blue plastic mac!

These things go round and round, thankfully people are still discovering the clips, I posted about this years ago!

It's a C&A plastic mac, no exactly right for the 'pacamac' 50's period but still looks good.

Steptoe & son

A nice period piece from 1965. The first seven minutes of the episode 'A box in town' features Yootha Joyce wearing a PVC black and white mac.
