A Waxed Cotton outer fabric from Halley Stevensons in Scotland – the best in the business.

Halley Stevensons have been producing waxed cotton since 1864. As well as having history they’re regarded as the highest quality supplier in the industry. Fabrics are consistent meaning that our end garments are all the same quality grade and the durability and performance of the cloth is legendary.

Halley also innovate and are now bringing more sustainable products to market. The EverWax™ finish is a hybrid wax made from an oil base with 20% from thermal recycled waste plastics. This is a good thing as far as we’re concerned and it’s definitely a step in the sustainable direction that we’re going in across our range.

Halley Stevensons are bluesign® system partners, a benchmark for high standards in the chemical industry.

It’s in the details

Chunky metal stud fasteners on front closure, four external pockets and adjustable wrist closure.

Heavy duty two way zip from the UK’s last zip manufacturer.

Moleskin-lined collar for a brush with plush.

Two lined and angled outside chest pockets. Left pocket has a pen holder sewn in (can also be used for a slim cigar or dry cured sausage, up to you).

Two lined outside waist bellows pockets for stashing your stuff. Lined integrated hand warmer pockets.

Two inside chest pockets built into the recycled cotton/viscose lining.

Concealed waist and hem adjuster cords with robust metal sprung adjusters.

400g/m² Waxed Cotton

Densely woven 100% cotton finished with wax is hard wearing and can be re-proofed giving the jacket a very long life.

In cold weather the wax stiffens making the jacket even more wind proof and highly water resistant.

Halley’s EverWax™ Vintage fabric used in our jacket is a traditional wax cotton, but with a drier handle than old fashioned ‘oil skins’.


It’s a tough old jacket so it doesn’t need much looking after. If it gets dirt on you can wash the area with cool water in the shower. When it’s time just use any tin of re-proofing wax. Put the tin in warm water to soften and use a cotton cloth to rub wax into the jacket paying particular attention to high wear areas and the seams.

Don’t be a dick. Do not put this jacket in a washing machine, tumble drier or under an iron.
