    Would it be a mistake to wax an unlined jacket? Will the wax bleed through and get all over whatever I am wearing?

    It would lose a lot of breathability, and frankly, is not all that easy to do. I would practice on a beater jacket before I would risk anything of any value.

    It is already a cheap jacket. It is a military style jacket I wear in the fall. Breathability isn't a concern, it isn't a sport coat although I would understand why my question was misleading. I just haven't ever had a waxed jacket before and I am concerned that without the buffer of a lining it will always feels greasy and get my shirts waxy. I would like to make it water repellent though.
