How To: Rewaxing Your Outerwear

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.
