A Good Waxed Jacket Is the Best Jacket to Wear This Season

When shopping for the perfect jacket to carry you into fall, look toward the type of fabric that’s going to stand up to seasonal style transitions — that is to say, look toward waxed fabric. Accept no substitutes, because the best waxed jackets are tough, hard-wearing, and rugged, able to handle a breezy fall morning or a blustery fall night. The best waxed jacket can go a long way toward amping up your fall style — at least, that’s how we feel.
