'Waxed cotton is, as the name suggests, cotton impregnated with a paraffin based wax, woven into a cloth. Widely used from the mid-19th century to the mid-1950s, the product,which originated in the sailing industry in England and Scotland, became widely used by many for waterproofing.' (Wikipedia)

The two tone peak is nice and deep to keep the sun out of they're eyes and features a double thickness hand cut leather insert to create a great shape. The peak is secured with a single wooden button with the button hole hidden in the centre seam while on top there's the traditional self covered button. At the rear the hem is elasticated to keep it snug and comfortable and it is lined in loopback tartan jersey which is nice and cosy and has all the relevant labels.
