A waxed jacket is just a ticket to a ride that might last the rest of your life. When you first take it out of the box, it’s pristine. But then the real adventure starts. After a few weeks, you might notice the crisp cotton softening up. Then the elbows and shoulders start showing one-of-a-kind creases and wear. Next thing you know, it’s years down the line and your jacket fits like a second skin—and has a waxy patina with plenty of stories to tell. Since the early 20th century, waxed jackets like these stayed dry and held up through muddy motorcycle races, WWII campaigns, and countless trips along the scenic route.
