Every man needs a lightweight jacket that can handle a heavy-duty day. Bonus points if it’s comfortable. Even better if it actually looks good. And that’s exactly what you get with Buffalo Jackson’s waxed canvas jackets.
Hooded Waxed Canvas Jackets
Our waxed canvas hooded jackets are mid- to lightweight and lined with soft flannel that’s made from the same cotton as our flannel shirts. The waxed canvas exterior shields you from rain and wind, and the plaid interior adds to the rugged outdoorsman style.
The waxed canvas exterior includes elastin just the right amount of stretch and comfort – so you can easily wear this jacket while working in the yard or exploring the great outdoors. And on those cold mornings or crisp evenings as autumn fades into winter, you’ll be grateful for the drawstring hood and dual center closure with zipper and antique-finish buttons.
Trucker Style Waxed Canvas Jackets
Our waxed canvas trucker jacket features a 100% waxed canvas exterior and a soft, poly/cotton blend plaid interior. With double pockets on the sides and chest, you can easily store small essentials like your wallet or keys. An adjustable button-loop waist ensures the perfect fit. (Heads up on the fit though – the trucker jacket is running small, so plan to order one full size larger than you normally would.)
With a timeless design and a waxed canvas fabric that ages like fine whiskey, this the perfect go-to jacket for a day’s work or a night on the town.
EXPLORE OUR FULL SUITE OF MEN’S OUTERWEAR
Our waxed canvas jackets are just one part of Buffalo Jackson’s full suite of quality men’s outerwear. Our outerwear collection includes various materials and styles – all reflecting our old-school values of hard work, grit, and the spirit of adventure. In addition to waxed canvas jackets, we provide the following great options.
Waxed Canvas Vests
Waxed canvas takes all the best features of canvas, and then adds some valuable features. The wax coating amps up the wind resistance, repels water, and even ages beautifully. Like high-quality leather, waxed canvas looks and feels better the more you use it, developing a fine patina over time. Our waxed canvas vests feature a warm sherpa-lined collar, corduroy accents. and come in light & dark gray or green & khaki.
Leather Jackets & Vests
We’ve crafted our leather jackets and vests using different kinds of leather, from traditional cowhide leather to buttery soft lambskin and sheepskin. Each type of leather offers distinctive properties that complement each style of jacket. Buffalo Jackson’s leather outerwear includes men’s down jackets, down vests, western vests, bomber jackets, motorcycle jackets, and more.
Down Jackets & Vests
Our down jackets and vests are available in both light brown leather and dark brown leather. The 100% genuine lambskin leather is extraordinarily soft and wearable, and the down insulation provides the warmth you need.
Our styles of wool jackets include the flannel-lined Wesley wool jacket with a more tailored fit like a riding jacket, our heavyweight Ellis wool jacket with quilted interior and sherpa collar, and our Yukon wool shirt jacs.

WAXED CANVAS JACKETS: CARE & CLEANING
Waxed canvas jackets are definitely durable, but don’t go throwing them in the washer or dryer. Actually there are a few ways to NOT wash waxed canvas, and if you make those mistakes... well, your waxed canvas jacket will just be... a canvas jacket. So, make note:
- Dry clean
- Machine wash
- Machine dry
- Use warm or hot water
- Use detergent
Using any of the above methods will break down the wax coating, compromise the finish and water resistance, and leave you with a plain old canvas jacket - and probably a big mess.
DO THIS INSTEAD
To clean the exterior of your waxed canvas jacket,
- Lightly scrub away dried mud or dirt with a soft bristled brush
- Try plain (cold) water before using soap
- Use cold water and a small amount of mild soap (not detergent) when needed
- Rinse away any soap and allow the jacket to air dry
To clean the interior of the jacket, spot clean with water and mild soap, paying particular attention to the underarms, collar, and cuffs.
This method will allow you to clean away dirt and spots without breaking down the wax coating on the canvas. And remember - don’t wash the waxed canvas exterior very often! Waxed canvas jackets look better the more you use them, and the scuffs and marks they pick up along the way add character. Wash sparingly, and enjoy the adventures.
