15 Best Waxed Canvas Jackets

Published 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.
