I first started to like plastic rainwear when i saw a lady on a bus going to school, she was wearing a yellow rainhood, which i was fasinated with. I wore a black plastic raincoat to school in bad weather. My mother wore plastic pleated rain bonnets and there was a bag in the kitchen in which used and old rain bonnets where kept. I would often take a rain bonnet and wear it home from school, somm women would look and say i was been sensible, but others would just stare and try to see if i was a girl. I still wear a plastic raincoat and a rainhood out, I dont see what the problem is with a man wearing a rainhood.perhaps with more men wearing rainhoods it will be more aceptable.
