Wax Jacket Reproofing

Wax jacket reproofing and restoration is now available at Todd Layne Cleaners. Trust us, we have been working with specialty jackets since we opened in 2006.

Regular wax jacket re-proofing is essential to weatherproof and maintain the look/feel of your wax cotton jacket. This process is done entirely in our store by trained personnel. We use authentic wax thornproof dressing and follow all of the appropriate steps to restore your jacket to its original condition. Please keep in mind that a wax cotton jacket should never be washed or dry cleaned. If you have any questions about this service, please text or call 646.661.4777.

The Jacket Re-Waxing Process Described

Our process starts out with a tin of authentic 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 wax cotton jacket weather resistant!

Price for Jacket 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 $50. We do not offer additional discounts of any kind on this service, although using the online link below will give you a $10 credit towards one of our other services in the future.
