Additional source of information[edit]

There is some additional material on the current Mackintosh company at this Google cached version of an article on thefashionspot.com in 2004.

As this is a cache article, it would probably be worth gathering information from it before it disappears. -- Solipsist 18:13, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I think it moved here. It seems to be a copy and paste of a newspaper article, which is similar to this 2002 Scotsman piece. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 13:33, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
Here is an interesting 2007 article, which names Daniel Dunko as a 31-year-old entrepreneur who bought the Cumbernauld company in the 1990s and apparently oversaw its revivial. Maybe worth someone looking to include that in the article. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 13:42, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Error in origins[edit]

Judging by Charles Macintosh's entry at the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, we have got it wrong regarding the relationship of Hancock and Mackintosh. See http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/17541 (subscription or library card needed)

Also perhaps useful: http://www.lakelandelements.com/rainwearhistory/notes/mackintosh_heyday.htm (extract from S. Levitt 'Manchester Mackintoshes: A History of the Rubberized Garment Trade in Manchester', published in Textile History in 1986. ) Be nice to get a look at the whole article.

Against the 'k'[edit]

I am against the use o K in Mackintosh as used presently in this article. Obviously it is correctly spelled without a k, and those who use the letter are in error. Why should wikipedia perpetuate this error teaching new people others' mistakes? — Nicholas (reply) @ 07:40, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

The article itself seems to support this argument. --BDD (talk) 00:35, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Mackintosh with the K is a brand name, Macintosh without the K is the generic for this type of raincoat. It seems to me pretty obvious that the entry is (and ought to be) about the generic type of raincoat named for its inventor, with a necessary subsidiary mention of the variantly spelt brand which traces its roots (though not a neatly as suggested here) to the same man. Or is Wikipedia now substituting copyright protected brand names and approved corporate histories for common English words and scholarship? TheCormac (talk) 16:52, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

I agree should be a redirect from the K form to the correct origins cf Hoover: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_cleaner —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.113.96.60 (talk) 06:24, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
