Heavy Waxed Cruiser by Best Made Company

Springtime in Portland is turbulent.  The land is shaking itself awake with bursts of hail and rain squalls followed by unexpected afternoons of quiet sunshine.  The cherry blossoms and daffodils are exploding and the light is finally sticking around long enough for happy hour.  When I saw the Heavy Waxed Cruiser by Best Made Company, I knew it was perfect for the wonderfully indecisive days of spring ahead of us.

I love waxed canvas but this jacket really out does itself.  Built to last both time and season, it’s a strong helping of waxed duck canvas reinforced with double needled stitching and solid brass shanks. The neck stand is noteworthy as it not only gives a confident shape to the entire piece but it’s the perfect guard against that sideways rain the Oregon coast is known for.  The softer interior collar and cuffs add a level of coziness that is often forgotten in canvas creations and the inner layer is a brushed cotton twill.

Designed and manufactured in NYC, the Heavy Waxed Cruiser was built for the beautifully unpredictable months ahead in the Pacific Northwest.  The sustainable notions of this jacket are also not be overlooked.  It was crafted for longevity by allowing the seasons to weather it into an aged classic that gets better each year.
