THE ( SUM­MER) FAB­RIC OF THIS NA­TION: WAXED COT­TON

Men's Style (Australia) - - Manual -

IT’S NO AC­CI­DENT that waxy weath­er­proof­ing was in­vented in a coun­try that av­er­ages 45 inches of rain each year. In the 1920s, Bar­bour in­tro­duced a waxed­cot­ton cape for eques­tri­ans and car­riage driv­ers, which led to a mo­tor­cy­cle jump­suit, a sub­ma­rine suit, and the breath­able waxed-cot­ton Bar­bour jack­ets we wear today. Thanks to lighter cot­tons and sharper tai­lor­ing, the ver­sion above is more wear­able but ev­ery bit as wa­ter­proof. bar­bour.com
