This is quite a long post, the longest since my helmets one! Made in heavy duty twelve ounce black wax cotton. This jacket draws its inspiration from the traditional wax jackets used in a bygone era. Each one is conceived to transcend fads and remain classic, therefore having quality and durability. As time passes this garment should become even more unique and evolve with the wearer.
The end result is one that is as natural and authentic as you. However I was encouraged by the previous review which rated this jacket excellent and by the fact that it was made in the UK from specified material.
I contacted the supplier to check details of the sizing and found that they responded quickly with the required info. Looks the part, great price, and the review seem to bear out the quality of this jacket, one to bear in mind.
Deluxe Traditional wax cotton motorcycle jacket. Fastened by a buckled throat latch collar — Tightened at the waist by a leather belt passing through five leather belt rings.
Closed on the front by a zip and flap with hidden press buttons YKK brass zipper on front and Zips at the cuffs. This jacket has 2 lower, 2 upper patch pockets which are closed by flap and snap buttons. Although not a waxed jacket as the others are, this one seemed too good to not include.
The styling details look spot on, and, as with a good wax jacket, this will only look better the older and more worn in it gets. The Frank Thomas FTW Pitman Wax Motorcycle Jacket features a retro classic styling, CE approved amour at the shoulders and elbows, soft foam back padding upgradeable fashionable buckle fastening at collar and waist, removable thermal body liner, chest, waist and hand warmer pockets, adjustability at cuffs and is available in 2 colours.
Arrived home totally dry — well, the top half of me. Frank Thomas is a well known, well regarded name in motorcycling gear, with a reputation for quality. Although the website says there are two colour options, I could only find black. A military style falling to just below the waist, with large front pockets and a built-in belt. Epaulets are common but not required.

The iconic military style: Waterproofed cotton and wool were the original materials for the World War One-era trenchcoats that gave the style its name. There are many variations on all these basic styles.
Hoods are quite common, as are all sorts of extra pockets designed for specific activities and items — shotgun shells, rolls of film, notebooks, and more. Colors vary depending on brand and marketing, but earth tones are the most traditional. The original chemical process turned the cotton black or dark olive, which early manufacturers balanced with a brown corduroy collar, and all those are still quite common in modern waxed jacket styles.
In any cut or color, the sturdy, finished look of a waxed cotton jacket is a big selling point over more modern outdoors wear — unlike a brightly-colored plastic poncho, it looks like part of an outfit, rather than something draped over it.
The treatment that gives waxed cotton its breathable waterproofing is a natural one — it will decay over time. Re-waxing a cotton jacket can be done at home, or most manufacturers offer a restoring service in-house.
The process is fairly simple — softly-heated wax is rubbed into the jacket with a cloth, then allowed to sink in for several hours. Paul Smith, the Perfect 'Socking' filler?
