Barbour Wax For Life

Barbour waxed cotton is perfect for modern life and when properly looked after, can last for many years and plenty of adventures.

Wax for Life brings together three unique services. Our Barbour Repair & Re-wax service allows you to send in your beloved jacket for a re-wax to keep the rain away and mend any wear and tear that might occur. MyBarbour allows you to customise and build your very own Barbour Bedale, Beaufort or Beadnell jacket that is uniquely yours. Then, when the time comes for a new one, you can hand in your old waxed jacket in exchange for a £50 voucher with our Barbour Re-Loved programme.


Over 100 Years of Repairs and Re-Waxing

Send your jacket to be lovingly repaired and re-waxed at our Factory in South Shields.


Our Re-loved programme allows you to turn in your old wax jacket in exchange for a voucher off a new one, so that your old jacket can be restored and re-loved in a new home.

My Barbour

Create your own Barbour jacket that's uniquely yours, through our MyBarbour customisation service.

Re-waxing at home

You can also extend the life of your jacket from home with an annual re-waxing. Using our expert Wax Thornproof Dressing, you can lovingly restore your waxy companion by following the simple instructions in our step-by-step guide. Whether you want to re-wax a classic 6 oz wax or a lightweight wax, read our easy guides below to get started.

How to Re-wax
Classic 6oz Wax

Our classic 6oz wax is extremely durable and is one of our oldest and most loved wax weights. Although hard-wearing, you can help your waxed jacket last even longer with re-waxing.

How to Re-wax
Lightweight 4 oz Wax

Lightweight wax is very resilient and retains wax extremely well, at around 75% of the weight of Barbour's classic waxed jackets. If re-waxing is required, you can purchase a lightweight wax stick and follow our easy care guide.

From the 1921 catalogue

We've been extending the life of your jacket for over 100 years.  It was in 1921 that Malcolm Barbour, the 2nd generation of the Barbour family introduced our re-waxing and repair service.
