carhart wax jacket

Not all of us can afford the Barbour price tag, lets face it and those ones you find in the vintage shops never really fit.

So thank Lordy that Carhartt have though to give us an alternative by bringing out their own waxed range. New for spring summer Carhartt bring out the Permanent Wax. The thing about this permanent wax is that it stays looking new and doesn't get weathered. This could be a good thing or it could be a bad thing, it depends on your tastes really.

There are three styles of jacket. The Michigan Coat, the traditional Carhartt jacket but in the permanent wax fabric with cotton lining and corduroy top collar. The Arctic Coat, more Barbour like with two chest pockets, two lower pockets and a chest pockets with inside storm cuffs. The Active Jacket with hood, kangaroo pockets and rib cuffs.
