Thanks fushaw. My Barbour Moorland needs some patching up and I found some old (Alan Partridge?) waxed cotton material from a coat that was shortened, but it was mouldy. So I'm going to cut a few bits from a donor Northumbria instead, Will post a pic when it is done.^^ I'd probably try vinegar, that shouldn't affect the wax or cotton. You could use a dilute solution of water and vinegar so it's not so strong.
Internet mentions oxyclean and other types of color-safe bleaches to kill the fungus.
Sunlight or a UV light (may affect the color) + vinegar (or alcohol if you're daring) to kill it chemically, and a good brushing to remove it.Is there any way to clean mildew off of waxed cotton without damaging it?
im after the black supa commander. I need to try it on first before buying regardless.You fellas come to a verdict on whether or not the Gold Standard stuff is worth the upgrade?
I'm really curious if the Supra Commander has the same breathability issues as the original Tokito. And I'm kind of in love with the Supra Corbridge, from the pictures and descriptions.
With having the lockdown and wanting to be sure of my choice of jacket I've taken the opportunity to think over my options more and am very tempted by the Beaufort. I've not tried one on yet but if I do go for one it's my intention to send it to Barbour to have the storm cuffs removed and either replaced with the knitted cuffs of the bedale or just left without."...the velcro storm cuffs are a bit rubbish TBH. Not entirely sure about the Sylkoil finish but they don't have offer a good green in the waxed version. Apart from that it's not a bad jacket"
I read this somewhere online that because the Beaufort is a shooting jacket the velcro cuffs are designed to break apart when you quickly raise your gun to your shoulder when you take aim and the sleeves are meant to be short so not to foul your fingers on the trigger again for when raising your gun to the shoulder. Conversely, the elasticated cuffs of the Bedale are designed to stop wind and water getting up the sleeves when horse riding. Every jackets details are specifically designed for their specific function.Sleeves are very short on this jacket compared to the one I inherited – I probably need to size up. Also, the velcro storm cuffs are a bit rubbish TBH.
