how to re-wax GUIDE
Keep your Warner Heritage Jacket in fine shape using premium wax supplied by Halley Stevensons.
Waxed cotton is one of the original weatherproof performance fabrics and because of its quality and ability to last for generations, it is a sustainable alternative to waterproof synthetic materials. It’s no wonder that it has continued on as a traditional workwear staple for fisherman, ranchers, and outdoorsmen, as well as a classic fashionable piece for city dwellers.
The material is strong and reliable, while the finish gains character over time, giving it that perfect vintage look of a well-worn and worked in coat that we all desire. A unique feature of waxed cotton is the ability to add performance back into the fabric by reproofing the jacket. By re-applying wax as required, you can make a notable difference in the life of your coat.
START BY CHOOSING A WARM ROOM OR OUTSIDE ON A HOT DAY
BRUSH OFF ANY DIRT OR GRIT
SPONGE DOWN WITH COLD WATER
- USE SOAP OR DETERGENTS
- DO NOT MACHINE WASH, DO NOT DRY CLEAN, DO NOT IRON, DO NOT TUMBLE
PAY ATTENTION TO SEAMS, CREASES AND DRY PATCHES
FOR A “FACTORY” FINISH, BLOW EVENLY WITH A HAIRDRYER
You can rewax the jacket yourself. How often you re-wax your jackets depends on how often your jacket is worn, for regular use, it is recommended re-waxing once per year.
