Rated 2 out of 5 by ashpool1 Not Waxed Cotton
This jacket is not waxed cotton. It is cotton sprayed with silicone, as per the materials tag of the Jacket. Therefore it has no qualities of actual wax on cotton. I don't understand how Jcrew can even write in the description - waxed cotton. Aside from not looking like actual waxed cotton it fits well and the thinsulate gives it some warmth.
I put some otterwax on the Jacket to give it more of an authentic look but the was does not take well on the material. I was able to achieve a less uniform sheen which real waxed cotton would look like.

The fit is bizarre and the look is more fake leather than waxed canvas. I've felt a little sleazy when I've warn it (and not in a good way).

Rated 5 out of 5 by SlimFan Stylish alternative to a quilted jacket or vest
Love the slim fit and overall look and it seems solidly made. It's not a middle of the winter coat, but because it's got a bit of thinsulate it's warm enough for late fall and early spring. Plus, it's lightweight and somewhat water resistant. I wish there was an inside pocket, but otherwise it was a great buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mamba Good looking Jacket with some caveats
This is a good looking Jacket. Classic four pocket design with a thinsulate lining. This thing will keep you pretty darn warm. Unfortunately it does have a couple of drawbacks. The coating is not wax but silicone. I haven't worn this in the rain yet so I can't say anything about its waterproofness. The other thing is that the jacket develops an odor. I'm not sure if it's from the jacket itself or the coating is absorbing outside odors but it's quite noticeable. If you are looking into getting this jacket, I would suggest sizing down. I'm 5'8 165 lbs with an athletic build and the medium is a little loose and not as sleek as I would have liked. I wear medium in jcrew slim fits and small in classic fits if that helps.
