New Dry Vintage Waxed Cotton Jackets from Dubarry of Ireland

Photos by Salt Water New England
Dubarry of Ireland sent two of their PrimaLoft filled jackets from the new Dry Vintage Waxed Cotton collection for a bit of field testing.

The Dry Vintage Waxed Cotton has been developed and supplied by a Scottish mill and has a lighter wax content than other wax jackets.   True to its name, it is dry to the touch and does not have to be re-waxed, a good option for those who like the wax cotton look and function but not the waxy feel nor the concomitant labor.

The PrimaLoft fill means these wax jackets can take you right through colder weather.   They are comfortable to wear, and they have sturdy storm flaps, brass closures, and YKK zippers.

These are also for people who prefer a contemporary, shorter cut.
Because these are from Dubarry, whose boots and tweed shooting coats are favorite items, the leather trim is water repellent.

Galway Boots from Dubarry of Ireland


  1. I do like the pocket leather accents; many years ago, I had that added on a Barbour coat to keep it ‘working’ for a few more decades... the Dubarry sailing boots are fab...

  2. Nice looking jacket! Thanks much.

  3. is the insulation part of the jacket, or can you remove it similar to the zip-in lining available from Barbour?

  4. No photos of the lining though Muffy ?
