Barbour Wax for Life


Barbour waxed cotton is perfect for modern life and when properly looked after can last for many many years. Wax for Life brings together three unique services. Our Barbour Repair & Rewax service allows you to rewax your jacket every year to keep the rain away and mend any wear and tear that might occur. When the time comes for a new one, you can hand in your old wax jacket in exchange for an $80 credit towards your new waxed jacket with our Barbour Re-Loved programme (available at participating stores for a limited time).
