All rainwear discussions in general or that do not fit into other categories.
Some lovely outfits and some amazing macs there, hope you don't mind me asking where did you get your black face mask ?
Although I am most definitely not a CD or TV, my fetish for shiny (and I emphasise: shiny, as dull/matte materials have no appeal to me at all) PVC, PU, Rubber and Nylon extends to women's garments (when I say garments, I mean coats and jackets- NOT skirts and dresses!). I have quite a few shiny and glass clear women's style PVC plastic rain macs in various colours except for pink. If they are not overly feminine in appearance, I am comfortable wearing them outdoors when it is raining. I also am into the shiny nylon and PVC/PU-coated puffer/puffa jackets and coats; I find that the shiniest ones (the shinier the better!) tend to be for women. I must have been a magpie in a past life, as they like shiny objects . I have a few of the Fulton clear PVC bubble umbrellas, which tend to be described as 'women's umbrellas'. Mind you, none of my bubble umbrellas have a pink trim, so they are not all that feminine, and I have indeed gone out in public with my bubble umbrellas (when it is raining, of course) and nobody ever batted an eyelid. Recently, I wore in public, a long raincoat made from a very shiny patent black PVC, and one woman complemented me: "Excuse me, I like your mac. It is so shiny! Where did you get it from?" To avoid embarrassment, I replied with: "Top Man". She did not give off a vibe along the lines of: "what on earth is a MAN doing wearing a shiny black plastic mac"? Her complement was well-intended and she had a smile on her face. Speaking of which, if you look at the range of clothing sold by the likes of Top Man and Asos, one could be given for thinking that some of their clothing in the Men's Section looks 'camp' or feminine, as opposed to masculine. Oh, and although I do not own any as yet, I also like the shiny rainboots (Hunters and the like). The shiniest of the wellies tend to be marketed towards women. Nonetheless, I could wear them out on a leisurely rainy walk, provided that they are not pink in colour!
Not a CD or TV, but like many members, I agree that the range and style of women's rainwear is so much better than men's, which tend to be shapeless and dull by comparison. So I wear my wife's plastic raincoats when she is not around. I have some men's PUL plastic jeans which are actually very good, and a unisex PUL jelly jacket which, to be honest, is not really for a man by any stretch of the imagination, but I love it! I don't want to dress as a woman, but will do if the items are plastic, PVC, nylon etc.
You have summed it up for me, JellyMan. I do not dress in women's clothes but I do wear a long pvc u like mac, I have been out for a walk in it this morning. It probably looks a bit like a woman's mac but I like it and if anybody else doesn't like it too bad. Good to know that you have a wife who wears a plastic raincoat.
Alas she only wears them in the bedroom and then only rarely under sufferance. Still better than never!Rainworshipper wrote: ↑January 16th, 2021, 8:44 am You have summed it up for me, JellyMan.
