This new jacket features a Dry Wax rather than Silk Wax outer from the original waxed cotton manufacturer, Halley Stevensons of Dundee, Scotland. The Dry Wax has a more refined and modern appearance, less tacky and sticky than our traditional Silk Wax garments, such as Sandon. The styling has taken a different approach with a more high street fashion appearance with branded buttons on pockets, cuff and hem with less classic cross quilted overlays.
The Kingstone jacket still features though a Reissa waterproof and breathable membrane behind the wax, offering a double layer of protection. British manufacturer Marton Mills has contributed to creating beautiful liners that colour match the outside colour (Grey Highlander in Navy and Gordon Red in Sage) and the armour has been sourced from Italy from a company with exceptional soft mould armour, Safetech.
