The Jacket Wax Re-Proofing Process
We offer a complete wax re-proofing service for authentic brands and other jackets with a similar wax cotton or regular cotton material. Regular re-proofing is essential to maintain the look and feel of your jacket. Since 2006, this process has been done entirely in our store by trained staff. Feel comfortable using us for this service. We use authentic wax thornproof dressing and follow all of the appropriate steps to restore your jacket to its original condition. Performing this service on a regular basis keeps your jacket weather resistant.
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!
