The Mac jacket gleaned its name from Mackintosh, the British coat maker who invented the process of rubberizing cotton to give it waterproof qualities. Decades later, the brand's familiar single-breasted trench coat silhouette can be seen all over the place. From designer lines to more accessible interpretations from bigger retailers, it's a staple that's ideal for days when there's a chance of showers. Here are a few of our favorites, in a range of prices.
L.L. Bean Signature,
$185 / $119
Made from a coated cotton, they add a durable storm flap collar and slash pockets on the side. It's also partially lined in a smart tattersall fabric.
This lightweight style has a spread collar, hidden placket and is finished off with details like taped seams for extra protection in wet weather.
Mackintosh x Epaulet, $995
Made especially for Epaulet, this waterproof trench features a contrast, tribal-inspired liner, as well as a slimmer fit than traditional Macs.
This coated cotton jacket also has a reinforced placket detail and a slightly darker tobacco color to help it stand apart from a sea of khaki.
Burberry Brit, $895
Combining waxed cotton with linen for a unique finish, this designer trench has flap pockets and is fully lined in one of Burberry's iconic tartans.
