Ladies Black Wax Jacket - Epsom Wasp - WAX JACKET2017
Our stylish ladies wax jacket is a classic John Partridge design, and still made here.
A move on from our traditional shortish fitted styles- featuring a very flattering body shape, shaping seams to front and back, rear waist adjusters to create a perfect shape, and corduroy stand up collar.
Developed as a classic country jacket this style comes in two colours in our new Crack wax finish- this is both dry to the touch and water resistant- Crack wax? The fabric creases in use but returns to a flat finish when left to hang.
The Epsom Wasp is slightly slimmer with a more streamlined fit and feel than its older belted waist counterparts.
Like all waxed cotton it is both breathable and water resistant. We occasionally have tweed options available- if not on the website just drop us an email or a call.
Two way front zip
Half adjusters across the back
Two deep outside bellows pockets with matte brass studs
Two hand warmers- set into the front shaping panels
Stand up collar lined with cord
The fabric is strong and very water resistant. It keeps its look and requires only an occasional treatment with a light spray wax. The inner fabric is cotton with JP Check.
Internally there is a single wallet pocket which is closed with our special Partridge enamel stud.
A full length, two way zip- this allows the wearer to keep the jacket on whilst driving and releasing the zip from either top or bottom.
Inside the jacket we show are classic flying birds back neck label, our short history label, our makers label and our wax cotton fabric label.
Little known fact- this fabric was developed for us originally in the mid 1990's- due to a mistake it was left in the curing vat over lunch. When it came out the cracked wax finish was evident. It has since become the most popular of finishes not just for JP but other upscale brands as well.
