Handsome, durable and built for in-between seasons

Best waxed jackets for men in 2023

Spring is technically here, but that doesn't mean the weather hasn't been all over the place lately. Some days it's warm and sunny, and other days are cold and rainy—you may already have tucked away your winter coats for the season, so what jacket do you reach for now? Waxed jackets are the best year-round outerwear options, especially as the seasons are slowly transitioning.

Why? Because they're light yet substantial and tailor-made for keeping you dry. Look for cotton-waxed fabrics because they conform to your body and are easy to keep clean—most cleaning instructions say to spot-clean, and I can't think of a more dummy-proof way to keep a garment clean. Some styles are even blanket-lined, adding extra warmth whenever the cold becomes too much to handle, yet maintaining breathability to keep you from overheating. Also, the materials are durable, but the pockets on waxed jackets are lined to keep your hands warm, and some also have a bunch to keep your EDC secured, a utilitarian attribute I love about waxed jackets.

Styling these is easy: Throw them over your favorite thermal or fisherman's sweater now and an oxford cloth button-down or tee later in the season. When you don't feel like carrying an umbrella or forget it, that signature waxed coating provides plenty of protection from precipitation. And the more you wear it, the more the wax wears off—you'll soon notice a completely personal, worn-in patina. Ready to get waxed? We've rounded up 18 styles for you.
