Read: The 18 Best Waxed Canvas Jackets Of 2023

By Staff and Andy Peloquin

If you think you’ve got all the winter outerwear in your closet that you can possibly fit, think again. Between a slim topcoat, a durable parka and an essential denim jacket for layering, you also need a coat that’s rough and tough enough to do it all. Enter a waxed canvas jacket, made in a variety of silhouettes and with various bells and whistles galore to take on winter weather.

With its versatile looks — sometimes featuring the silhouette of an overshirt, sometimes that of a jacket — it’s a must-have. Crucially, it stands up to snow and slush, it’s fit to wear outside for weekend exploration, and thanks to its workwear roots, it’s rugged and yet refined at the same time.

Try it with a chambray shirt, dark denim and beat-up leather boots, or hit the streets with wool trousers and a classic Oxford for extra protection as you head to work. You can’t go wrong with one of the best waxed canvas jackets for men.

Tom Beckbe Tensaw Jacket

We appreciate a well-stocked rotation of durable, tough and rugged jackets — everything from a waxed cotton field jacket to a sleek moto jacket is fair game in our book. That makes the Tom Beckbe Tensaw Jacket all the more essential, stylish and handsomely designed. It’s got an old-school feel to it just from looking at it — the waxed shelter cloth is nearly unlike any other coat on the market, as is the type of design that your father and grandfather might have appreciated.

Not quite good enough? The cotton twill lining is dyed using Alabama red clay, while gusseted underarms and a bi-swing back give you the range of motion you need in the field. ‘Tis the season to embark on early morning hikes and hunting trips aplenty — the Tensaw Jacket is the one to get, if that sounds like your ideal fall or winter day.
