Today my trusty Bedale comes back from a minor repair at the tailors. I’ll be attempting to re-wax it tonight ahead of a trip to Skye. I’d have sent it away but left it too late, and with covid I don’t know how long I’d be without it!

how hard can it be... right?
Just take your time, less is more and use a hairdryer to melt the wax into the cotton. Then a cloth to mop up any excess around the buttons and seams.

Seemed to go just fine. Kept wax in a pot of hot water to keep it liquid. Used a sponge to push it into the fabric and move it around and a cloth to buff off any excess that was accumulating around seams etc.

as you say, less is more. No idea how some people say it takes a whole tin for a jacket, I used a about 1/3rd of the tin and felt the coverage was generous!

funny to hear these names. I went to college just outside Dalkeith!
I have been wearing my navy Dalkeith pretty much every day since I got it back from having the sleeves shortened. I know most prefer the olive color, but the navy is the perfect hybrid for work.

I did really enjoy the video's of Youtube channel "Wax and Tartans".
After watching some video's I bought the Barbour Northumbria.
Thanks! Shame Barbour don’t give me commission 😂

On colours: I picked up a brown Beaufort a few months ago and initially worried that I had made a mistake by not holding out for a green one, but it's grown on me enough to hunt down a brown tweed cap to go with it.

On re-waxing: Don't anyone know how best to obtain a can of Barbour wax in Canada?
