Wax coats and jackets are a country staple. They are timeless, long-lasting and a great investment for your country wardrobe. These jackets are weatherproof and protect you from the wind and rain, and you can easily manage how waterproof they are with regular reproofing and rewaxing. Originally designed for those working on the wet and windy ports of the Northeast of England, the cotton fabric is impregnated with oils and waxes to make it water repellent. Our collection of men’s waxed jackets includes classic styles from Barbour, which are still made in South Shields to this day. Waxed cotton jackets are notorious for lasting a long time with the correct care, as the waxed fabric is very durable and hardwearing. The A Hume men’s wax jacket collection includes traditional styles such as the Classic Beaufort Jacket and Stratford Wax Jacket, along with more modern takes, such as the Century Wax Jacket.
