    Not built like they used to be .

    Great video about a phantastic jacket (i own a beaufort myself – and i love it !) – never seen such a emotional way of explaining how to wax a barbour.

    how much of the tin should you use?

  4. Angus Meigh on February 7, 2019 at 5:39 pm

    I think that you could also use Nikwax cotton proof spray on wax emulsion instead to reproof a cotton wax jacket. Or even use neutral coloured boot wax which has parrafin added to make it soft and spreadable at room temperature and then go over that with a hair drier. Or something like Greenland wax.

    Love this video! We did one too!

  6. Radders123 on February 7, 2019 at 5:44 pm

    fantastic video

  7. Di Saar on February 7, 2019 at 5:44 pm

    I bought mine in Chicago and its made in Malasya, after 6 months of actual wear the black turned to dark pink, thankfully it was still in warranty and I got a new one.

    I like that he specifically said he lived in Vancouver. I’m moving there next year and was looking for a good rain proof jacket since it rains on a routine basis. I think it would be way too much for summer though. Do they have anything lighter?

  9. Escapism on February 7, 2019 at 5:50 pm

    I was hesitant to attempt waxing my Barbour because I don’t live in a cabin in the woods … turns out an apartment in the city is fine… you also don’t need to fry a coffee mug…

    Barbour jackets are as good as they come. My whole family west them and I’m 13 my brother is 16 my sister is 21 my mum is 49 and my dad is 53 and we have 23 of them all together from age 2-3 kids to xl mens however always buy vintage there a fraction of the price and will actually last longer as they are made of better quality oil skin in my opinion the best ones are the long shoresman for fishing and beaufortr game fair for hunting and the bedale for anything else

  11. Grumpy Greyhound on February 7, 2019 at 5:51 pm

    Awesome video. I understand your passion and being English appreciate your comments.  I went up to Barbour for the 1st time ever on Wednesday as I had promised my loved one a Barbour for Xmas.  It was her 40th on Wednesday so it made sense to drive the 6 hour round trip.

    I took my 1991 Barbour Durham there for assessment.  They were amazed at how new the lining looked.  Funny, since it has sat outside for the last 18+ years.

    I have just scrubbed it down now and am about to reproof.

    It needs about £50 worth of repairs if I want to go that far but I like the used individual look of it.  I will send it up to Barbour to have certain repairs down by them but fancy getting a needle and cotton out and giving it some TLC myself where my skills allow.

    I bought a pair of lovely Barbour X Joseph Cheaney Rockingham Boots and a Uist full length jacket when I was there too.  Both will last me for the remainder of my life and at 45 years old, I hope I have a few years ahead of me still.

  12. chibuisin on February 7, 2019 at 5:52 pm

    Shame they’re no longer made in the UK well apart from the Bedale from the "classic" line and then you might be unlucky. You pay made in England prices for a jacket that’s made in Bulgaria, Ukraine or Portugal…. What a shame

  13. Prince Westerburg on February 7, 2019 at 5:56 pm

    Last night I was walking past a skip (dumpster) and saw a jacket on top which had been thrown because it was ‘a bit muddy’, I put it through the washing machine and it looks fine but needed rewaxing anyway. You can machine wash them so long as they are thoroughly rinsed.

  14. Oscar Andersson on February 7, 2019 at 5:57 pm

    Can the quilted Babour-jackets also be waxed, or is the waxing just for the cotton jackets?

  15. Christ’s Chin on February 7, 2019 at 5:57 pm

    Looking mystical and in deep thought, whilst drinking a hot mug of joe.

  16. Judo Know on February 7, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    I think I ended up applying too much wax. I have run out of wax, and it barely covered the whole jacket. Now the jacket is straight up glistening, the wax is coming off of it when you touch it. Any advice on how to remove the excess wax?

  17. Alban Luta on February 7, 2019 at 5:59 pm

    Can anyone tell me if this wax will work on my carhartt hayden jacket blue which is 100% cotton poplin

  18. Patsy Foulkes on February 7, 2019 at 6:03 pm

    Nice house! shame it’s not in the UK!  I have a full length stockman’s coat with the caped top for horse riding and walking the dog, had it for about 25 years and only just thinking of re waxing it, few tears in the fabric here and there but I wouldn’t wear anything else for country wear, being thorn proof is a big priority. I have had the shorter barbour coats in the past and also the barbour waxed hats, also essential for British rain fall. The full length coat is a Backhouse from New Zealand, cost me over £100 25 year ago, wonder how much they are now.

  19. MrAlistar99 on February 7, 2019 at 6:03 pm

    Barbour are shite now. If you wear a new one for the outdoor lifestyle or work it won’t last six months. Pathetic company living on a name and past glories. Waste of money.

  20. MotoNinja on February 7, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    beautifully done video cheers

  21. Ceng Alko on February 7, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    Name of the song?

  22. geezerp1982 on February 7, 2019 at 6:06 pm

    you ponce!

  23. The Real Treble on February 7, 2019 at 6:06 pm

    I’m British & I love the Barbour jackets. I’m hoping to add a wax jacket in the future. A very popular brand in the UK especially their quilted range of jackets. I have two Barbour international quilted jackets, they are warm & very fashionable along with my quilted gilet & my chequered scarf!!!

  24. arxekakos on February 7, 2019 at 6:06 pm

    please help!!! How can i know if my barbour is a waxed model?? thank you

  25. Toxophilus indomitus on February 7, 2019 at 6:08 pm

    I love my Barbour Stockman, it’s the best coat I have ever owned, it can be used in summer and Winter and is a joy to wear. I live just South of where they are made, and in a cold and wet North easterly blowing off the North sea a Barbour will do the job.  Remember "there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inadequate clothing" buy a Barbour, English craftsmanship at it’s best.

  26. TheRunereaper on February 7, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    What a lovely house right at the beginning. That long bench seat is perfect for biguns and littluns alike. I have a mate who is the best fly fisherman I know. He lives in his Barbour jacket most of the winter and gets a superb, even finish whenever he waxes it. Classy little video, thanks for posting.

  27. ex0gen on February 7, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    I have a waxed cotton jacket.  So only cold water, no soap at all?

  28. RDubya73 on February 7, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    very well made video.

  29. gmonkman on February 7, 2019 at 6:11 pm

    God awful video. Just tell me how to wax the jacket, I dont need all this ‘aspirational’ shite.

  30. The Full Shilling on February 7, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    When you hang it up to dry after cleaning pre reproofing, use a hanger and turn the collar up.
    Sticking it on a door coat hook when still wet, looks sloppy to me.

  31. Omelbox on February 7, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Great video!
    By the way does anybody know what`s the name of the boots that the guy is wearing in this video?

    Thank you in advance!

  32. alexandre do on February 7, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Rewaxed my jacket for the 3rd time in 3 years. It always looks brand new after that hairdryer step.

  33. Efrain Lo on February 7, 2019 at 6:13 pm

    Amazing video !

  34. jannevsxe on February 7, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    What is the Barbour wax dressing made of?

  35. MozeleyTribe on February 7, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    What does the wax do for the jacket?

  36. AcreMusic on February 7, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    This is the most emotional video of how to re wax a jacket

  37. Francisco Ferreira on February 7, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    just waxed my barbour! thanks for the tips.

  38. mellowman1001 on February 7, 2019 at 6:23 pm

    – Do it outside on a hot summer day (make it an annual thing). It’s bloody painful, otherwise.

    – Use a cloth that doesn’t leave fibers / a sponge.

    – I don’t think the hot water makes much difference. If it’s a hot day, just being in the sun in a metal can is enough. On a Barbour video, I noticed they put the raw wax in a slow cooker, which I thought was rather clever – probably worth trying with a can of wax and partially immersed in water.

  39. puma on February 7, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    waxed-cotton jackets are a true piece of tradition to wear, AND a waxed cotton garment is far better for the environment than the new outdoor products of nylon, which have lots of very dangerous chemicals!!!! This fact really DOES NOT fit with the idea of pristine nature, the outdoor equipment industry should seriously think about it.
    I got back to old canvas surplus bags… they are a better option, and carry a lot of history too
    less is more, simple is beautiful

    "there’s something about Barbour…it’s hard to describe"

  41. Håkan Gustavsson on February 7, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    Tnks 4 a nice and help full video 🙂

  42. DJCamYank on February 7, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Great video. Love the English Bulldog at the end.

  43. Oingo Boingo on February 7, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    Ive been looking for for a nice jacket…I came across the Barbour on the Orvis home pg.
    So I started reading everything on the Orvis site, and the Barbour site, I really dig the way the waxed jackets look’ has that old world, salty charm, then i come to youtube, and see a couple vid’s including this one, and I,m turned off by one thing’ the Eddie Baurer ur wearing..and the others i,ve seen on here, the jackets look like regular dry material, not the semi waxy look i first saw on the barbour site’ cause that was one of the first things that attracts a persons eye, can you explain why this is…Thanks!

  44. Sam Perry on February 7, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    Love it.

  45. reso sho on February 7, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    great job!

  46. It's Dawson on February 7, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    I love my Barbour Duke jacket in sage and feel so lucky I live 20 miles away from the factory and outlet in South Shields England.

    I wore my jacket to work and splashed Bromine chemical on the front,hardly noticable but has small splash stains.

    I need to see if Barbour can repair/add sage colouring to fix my jacket.

    Fingers crossed!!!

  47. malthus101 on February 7, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    I have seen an olive coloured Barbour jacket but I want a black/very dark green jacket – could I add black dye to the Barbour wax to give the jacket a much darker look? Thanks.

  48. Evan Swyers on February 7, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Incredible short film. I find that the hand lit stove lends a sentimental glory to the wax shack. The man, a forlorn figure reflecting upon the Canadian landscape, considering the wood of his youth, finds diminutive difference between religion and Barbour coats. The act of re-waxing such an article bring a man closer to the divine than any other human.
