Holiday destinations

Post by HeatherlovesPVC » October 6th, 2019, 3:27 pm

I have just returned from Copenhagen and would recommend anyone from this site to visit. In four days I saw, worn in the street, 6 black, 3 blue and 2 red shiny PVC jackets. I also saw a 3/4 length shiny black coat as well as a full length Red Rukka style coat.
I lost count of the number of girls wearing yellow jackets and coats.
Also quite a few of the shops were selling shiny jackets and coats.
So I was thinking that we, on this forum, could compile a list of places where our favourite rainwear is worn openly so that others could choose them as a holiday destination.

Hi, everybody!
Lourdes, in the Pyrenean Mountains in the south western part of France is a town where a pilgrimage is held. Transparent or translucent PVC (and not only these cheap and thin PU raincoats) rainwear can be found in nearby every shop! I was there twice and bought lots of raincoats! And last but not least, thousands of pilgrims can be seen wearing plastic under heavy rain. Lourdes is known to have usually wet weather. This place is really interesting for our rainwear dreams!

Paris is always good for sightings in my experience.

We are too stiff upper lip in this country and must all wear matte black, in Europe they are far more open minded and much prefer brighter colours ?

The Western coast of Norway. Visitor to child in Bergen, "Does it always rain here?" Child, "I don't know. I'm only thirteen".

Iceland (Rykjavik) appears to be good around festival time (end of July).
