We have been working with waxed canvas for many years now. First we applied it to bags and this is our third or fourth coat to feature waxed canvas. We had to get many submits from the fabric mill before we could land the right amount of wax. The first couple of rounds came back really oily. It became a joke around the studio, I believe oil slicks were mentioned. Now we got it right, the perfect blend of canvas and coating. The great thing about wax is that it gives you protection against the elements, and it wears well over time. The garment changes and becomes more textured the more you wear it.
The side slant welt pockets on the front chest give the jacket an edge that we don’t normally see.
