Recent wet weather

Post by delboy » January 22nd, 2018, 2:57 pm

How many others have enjoyed wearing their favourite rainwear during the recent wet weather ?

I have had three opportunities to be dressed in my black PVC trenchcoat together with matching trousers,hat and gloves. On one outing I was complimented by two separate ladies who admired my suitable dress for the weather.

Sadly I did not see any others suitably attired.

Not really been out very far but I have worn my green heavy coat, green rain trousers, Rubber boots and a sou'wester.
Again like you no one around!
Though I did see a young woman wearing what looked like a New look spoty mac and an older lady wearing a navy pac a mac type coat.

My wife wore her lovely black shiny Dennis Basso coat out today in Truro, (she often does), no rain, but she likes to please me ;)

Rain coming down in buckets this morning in good ol’ Milwaukee, WI USA, and my wife had to work at her company’s corporate office, which is three blocks away from where I work, so for once we were able to drive together, she in her full length red rubberized satin trench coat, me in my navy rubberized cotton Rainmac, both wearing identical Burberry check wellies, while she topped her ensemble off with a matching Burberry bucket rain hat. We parked the car & I walked her to her office, sharing my Burberry umbrella with her. Sadly no other raincoats & wellies seen, just people huddled under umbrellas. Did get a couple of nice compliments from ladies on our matching boots. Hopefully it will still be wet out come lunchtime.

I'm so glad your wife was able to wear her red rubberized trench coat. My wife has several colors but not in red. Gets me going every time she wears them.

LOL

Same here. It's great because we can both feel kinky & get turned on & no one around us is any the wiser. Plus she always gets compliments from her friends & coworkers whenever she wears it.

She did require a little arm twisting to wear the satin trench though. She actually wanted to wear her glossy red Jane Post "Princess" slicker with matching red Hunters, which would look just as sexy on her, but since it was chilly out I convinced her the rubberized satin would be warmer than the vinyl slicker. Needless to say she was quite appreciative, as the heavy satin mac kept her warm & dry all day.

Fairly mild for the time of year here in the beautiful South so I am going to give my new Rains Lance coat a run-out at the seaside today. Hopefully it will make up for having to say a sad last farewell to my trusty Weather or Not double-breasted macintosh which has finally perished beyond saving. Always a happy reminder of Mr and Mrs Vane and their stalwart work in keeping high quality SBR alive in the 80's and 90's.

Oh, I agree about the "kinky" except I don't know if its just me or my wife as well. As she puts it, the coat makes her feel nice and warm. Or, putting it another way, it makes the whole idea seem "waterproof and windproof."

I also agree on colleagues who seem to love the idea but seem to go off a bit when they know the price.

The things we do to "feel kinky," LOL.
