Innovative and functional fabric. In 1823, MACKINTOSH, which originated from the invention of the rubberized tarpaulin Macintosh cloth by Charles Macintosh, is still evolving about 200 years after its birth.

RAINTEC CLASSIC, a functional material developed by MACKINTOSH, is used for the coat of "Y's CRAFTED BY MACKINTOSH" that will be added to the "Y's 1972" series.

RAINTEC CLASSIC is a functional material made by bonding a breathable waterproof film instead of rubber to two cotton fabrics, and is a new standard material of MACKINTOSH that has not only waterproofness but also water repellency and breathability.

RAINTEC CLASSIC, which is lighter and less taut than conventional rubberized fabrics, expresses the lightness that can be worn even with plenty of fabric and the interesting pattern (clothing pattern) of Y's. A new standard material makes it possible to create a coat with a Y's reconstructs the established style of "MACKINTOSH coat" and expands the possibilities as a model. Unique form with a sense of volume that is typical of Y's with MACKINTOSH's craftsmanship, creating innovative and free modeling.



The Y's CRAFTED BY MACKINTOSH coat, a hybrid of function and craftsmanship, incorporates the handmade process used in traditional rubberized coats for the lining. A traditional waterproofing method, the same as in the early 19th century, when rubberized coats were born, with waterproof tape manually applied to the back of all seams.



To apply the tape, the craftsman takes a special adhesive on his finger, stretches it, attaches the tape, rolls it from above, and dries it. All coats are completed through this process, so production is limited.



Y's tried to connect this manual process to a sculptural expression. Normally, a dark lining is used so that it is difficult to tell that the tape is affixed, but with the Y's CRAFTED BY MACKINTOSH coat, a white lining is also made, and the inevitable part where the tape is affixed and the place where the tape is affixed, etc. The rubber lining exists as a design expression. "Turn the front and back" -Both types are reversible, so you can enjoy each color on the front and back.

Y's conduct's commitment to unique form and reconstruction, MACKINTOSH's unwavering innovation and craftsmanship create a creative Y's CRAFTED BY MACKINTOSH coat.
