If the holy trinity of winter jackets – the down puffer jacket, the wool overcoat and the denim jacket – already has a place in your wardrobe, you might think your outerwear arsenal is apt. to face the season. But if you don’t have a waxed canvas jacket in the mix, you’re missing out on a staple that has great versatility and only gets better with age. While modern waterproof materials like Gore-Tex and DWR coatings may require less maintenance (you’ll need to re-wax your waxed cotton items from time to time), there’s simply no competition when it comes to style. The waxed canvas jacket wins every time.

The origin of oilcloth clothing dates back to the 17th century. Realizing that their ship’s sails caught more wind when wet, Scottish and English sailors began to grease them with fish oils: this had the same effect, but the oils prevented the sails from absorbing the moisture, which would weigh down the vessel. British fabric makers Millerain and Halley Stevensons in Scotland took note and adapted this logic to produce and patent their own weatherproof waxed cotton materials. These fabrics have quickly become an ideal material for making lightweight yet incredibly weather-resistant bags and protective clothing.

These two heritage names are still the main suppliers of oilcloth today. They are used by a number of acclaimed menswear brands including Belstaff, Filson and Peregrine. Today’s waxed canvas jackets come in many easy-to-layer styles and silhouettes, but no matter what you choose, they’ll keep you dry and comfortable in any wintry weather. And once you choose one, it will develop unique folds and colorations the more you wear it. Want to put one in your closet? These are our top picks.
