12 Best Waxed Canvas Jackets

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, JACKETS By

If you think you’ve got all the winter outerwear in your closet that you can possibly fit, think again. Between a slim topcoat, a durable parka and an essential denim jacket for layering, you also need a coat that’s rough and tough enough to do it all. Enter a waxed canvas jacket, made in a variety of silhouettes and with various bells and whistles galore to take on winter weather.

With its versatile looks — sometimes featuring the silhouette of an overshirt, sometimes that of a jacket — it’s a must-have. Crucially, it stands up to snow and slush, it’s fit to wear outside for weekend exploration, and thanks to its workwear roots, it’s rugged and yet refined at the same time.

Try it with a chambray shirt, dark denim and beat-up leather boots, or hit the streets with wool trousers and a classic Oxford for extra protection as you head to work. You can’t go wrong with one of the best waxed canvas jackets for men.

Taylor Stitch Rover Jacket

If you’re going to start anywhere in your search for a great waxed canvas jacket, you might as well start with Taylor Stitch. From the brand’s indigo shirts to chinos and even moto boots, they get it right — that’s especially true with the Rover Jacket. It’s built with classic style in mind, from the midweight 6.25oz. Waxed cotton canvas to the moleskin-lined collar. It takes a classic normally found in the British countryside, and brings it into the modern age. That means you can wear it with anything you’ve got in your wardrobe — especially when it’s snowy. – $298

Iron & Resin Rambler Jacket

The Iron & Resin Rambler Jacket is one such piece, with similar West Coast design inspiration to rival Taylor Stitch. However, the Rambler Jacket is cut more like a trucker jacket, made from wind and water-resistant 10.10oz. Martexin waxed canvas.

It’s an easy-to-layer piece, particularly with a classic grey crewneck sweater and dark denim.
