Looking for a good looking and practical waxed canvas shirt jacket? I’ve tried Legendary White Tails but it ripped pretty easily. Looking for tougher. I have a carhartt chore coat but I’m looking for something a little shorter, more like a shirt that I can wear open over another shirt or button/snap. Any suggestions?

The short one is shirt length. Have my friends Dads cruiser from the 80s. Indestructable

Australian outback trading, my dad has worn the same old waist coat for 30 years, all they need is yearly waxxing/oiling and they are perfect. I just got a shin length coat and they make vests and some shirts too

LC King maybe? Not sure if they have anything waxed right now

Patagonia makes a nice one, but not waxed.

Check out Sidnaw. I've been in his shop, he's legit. I've got the canvas jacket and the only word I can think of to describe it is indestructible. He makes a waxed canvas shirt as well.

Fjallraven G1000 material is a waxable polycotton. I have a shirt and a hooded jacket made of it. It’s a great material and lasts ages.

I second that, it’s great material that gives options to go breathable (no wax) or water repellent (waxed). I have to say though I’ve not been too impressed about the longevity of the wax treatment in the past: it seems to lose water repellency very quickly, after a wear or two.

Barbour Bedale.

Hits the spot between practicality, comfort, style and sturdiness for me. Very versatile with optional snap-on hood and zip-in liner vests. Develops great patina over time.

Schaeffer Outfitter Rangewax Jacket. Just like Filson quality wise but about half the cost

Marsh wear has the Delano shacket. It’s not waxed though but it’s a solid shirt jacket. Marsh wear makes good stuff

Fjallraven or outback trading co. Both make great waxed jackets.

Was recently checking out the stuff on aliexpress. Might be quote hogh quality, I'm not sure. The Red Tornado stuff looks legit and very good. "Maden" is half the cost and also seems decent. But I'm not quite sure if I want a canvas or a denim jacket.
