The Cold Smoke Co Saltire Waxed Trucker Jacket comes in two different colourways – these being camel and dark olive – and they both have different aesthetic impacts with the camel being a more stand out piece of outerwear and the dark olive better suited to those who like to keep their jackets more understated. This fantastic release from Cold Smoke come has a price tag of $395 which is good considering the quality materials and craftsmanship that have gone into this superb looking jacket.
Built For Harsh Conditions
Needless to say, the life of trucker is one that they need to be ready for any weather conditions and that’s where the versatility and robust performance of trucker jackets comes from. This is especially true with the Cold Smoke Co Saltire Waxed Trucker Jackets which came about when the California apparel brand ran with the idea of making a piece of outerwear that was rugged enough to throw on in the harshest conditions, and refined enough to wear on a date.
The Cold Smoke Co Saltire Waxed Trucker Jacket ($395) is crafted from Halley Stevensons® waxed canvas which is amongst the best in the business and will provide the perfect protective outer layer whatever the weather throws at you. This super durable Scottish made waxed canvas has been made at The Baltic Works factory in Dundee, since 1864 and they are known the world over for their quality. The beauty of waxed cotton is its robustness and longevity and the wax finish adjusts to ambient temperature to be softer/more breathable in warm weather and stiffer/more wind proof in cold conditions.
Aesthetically unparalleled, the wax used in this top class jacket from Cold Smoke Co naturally develops a patina over time and with each passing wear and it will begin to show a distinct character unique to your lifestyle and the adventures you’ve worn it on. Comfort is the name of the game with the Saltire Waxed Trucker Jacket and the body is lined with a plush American made Berber shearling, and the arms with a silky quilted taffeta. For a contemporary look, it is detailed with zippers custom made in California, authentic British made Brisbane Moss moleskin trim at collar, and sleeve cuffs, and Cold Smoke’s signature matte black logo snaps.
