Rainwear in the US and the UK

Post by MissRachel » June 4th, 2019, 6:25 pm

Hello Fellow Rainwear Lovers!

I am a long time collector and wear my outfits in the rain and around the house. My wife complains the house is too cold; she always knows when I am getting ready to "dress up." I have two sets of rainwear and BOOTS. I actually use some short boots I bought at Wal-Mart as house slippers.

Anyway, the question; do people in the UK wear rainwear more then people in the US? Is this because of the weather or other possibilities ?

My only guess is that more people use mackintoshes in the UK than in the US.

Most people around here don't have a clue about "real mackintoshes" but wear much shorter garments. US people seem to have a fetish for wet knees.

Of course, my wife and I don't agree and we dress appropriate for the weather. Needless to say, the 54" of rain we see in North Carolina does help.
