Barbour Wax Jacket Reproofing
Barbour wax jacket reproofing and restoration is now available at Todd Layne Cleaners. Trust us, we have been working with Barbour jackets since we opened in 2006. Wax Cotton jackets from other manufacturers can also be restored.
Regular Barbour wax jacket re-proofing is essential to weatherproof and maintain the look/feel of your Barbour jacket. This process is done entirely in our store by trained personnel. We use Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing and follow all of the appropriate steps to restore your jacket to its original condition. Please keep in mind that a Barbour jacket can never be washed or dry cleaned.
History of Barbour
Barbour dates back all the way to 1894 and is a family owned business going strong for five generations. Barbour remains true to their heritage with classic wax jackets still manufactured by hand. Barbour has a retail presence in over 40 countries around the globe. Barbour caters to not only men, women and children, but now even those little furry friends of yours, dogs! Barbour has expanded beyond just coats and their collection includes a full lifestyle wardrobe with shirts, dresses, knitwear, footwear, accessories and more.
Barbour remains true to its core values as a family business which espouses the unique values of the British Countryside and brings the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.
The Barbour Re-Waxing Process Described
Our process starts out with a tin of Barbour Wax Thornproof Dressing. We place the tin in hot water to soften the dressing. One of our trained personnel then works the dressing into your jacket with a special cloth, one section at a time. The amount of time that it takes to complete this part of the process is approximately three hours. After completing this step, we use a hair dryer to create a factory finish. We then hang the jacket in a warm room for 24 hours before packaging and getting ready for pickup. Performing this service on a regular basis keeps your Barbour weather resistant!
Price for Barbour Waxing Service
The cost for a standard length jacket is $95. Some jackets that are dry or have never been waxed require two coats of wax and the additional charge is $40. We do not offer additional discounts of any kind on this service. Sorry, no exceptions.
Tailoring Services for Barbour Jackets
We also offer a tailoring service to repair holes, pockets and cuffs. Our seamstress can also lengthen/shorten sleeves and other adjustments.
Odor and Germ Removal Service for Barbour Jackets
Barbour jackets cannot be washed or dry cleaned and can develop an odor over time, especially if stored for a long period of time. We can use a UV-C Verilux wand to deodorize and kill 99.95 of germs, viruses, bacteria and allergens. For additional information about this service, please email our concierge at [email protected].
