Paper Coat Sheds Rain — Folds Up Into Small Package (Oct, 1931)
Paper Coat Sheds Rain — Folds Up Into Small Package
TWO distinct developments are represented in a new type of rain coat recently introduced in Hollywood. The first is in the line of convenience, the coat being collapsible, so to speak, into a small compact package that can be carried in the pocket. The second is in material, paper replacing the customary rubberized fabric.
When worn, the coat resembles the capes commonly worn by policemen. Special treatment of the paper prevents the coat from falling to pieces or developing leaks in a downpour. The photo at the left shows Buddy Rogers, movie star, garbed in one of these new coats. Although it isn’t raining, it might start any minute, and Buddy is ready.
