I lived in England for a pair of years interior the process highschool interior the 70s. the ladies college up the line from mine (a surprisingly strange place in many techniques, we had basically approximately no longer something to do with them socially) made their ladies positioned on them over their college hats in moist climate. the ladies hated them, surprisingly via fact donning them over their college hats made them ineffective and that they looked ridiculous. yet some ladies used to take their college hat off to place their rain hat back on on the 'homestead' end of the holiday, and with their blue macs they looked somewhat effective. This replaced into additionally the era of handy, fold-up umbrellas in extremely vivid joyful colorings. those brollies, which maximum women enjoyed, (and observed their first one as quite a superb of passage as I remember, perhaps like Kareliz) maximum in all threat 'killed off' the rain hat as much as something, or relegated it to 'emergency use in basic terms' prestige. Forcing young ones to positioned on them would not have helped the two.
