The Waxed Cotton Story

Better with time.

Weather everything, forever. The more weathered our pieces, the better they get.

Better & more beautiful with time.

You know it as well as we do: Form and function shouldn’t be a choice. That’s  why we design super high-quality outerwear that looks as timeless as it actually is. 

Built to withstand harsh weather conditions without looking like sports gear, Olmsted pieces are designed to be timeless staples in any minimalist wardrobe. Our coats are meant to live with you - for all the living you plan on doing.


The wonder of waxed cotton.

The special wax finish we use on all of our one-of-a-kind pieces naturally picks up marks and creases with use, so it looks better with age - adapting to your environment and lifestyle - much like the nature we’re inspired by. 

Weatherproofed in Scotland since 1864, our wax-based finishes are biodegradable, vegan friendly and are actually derived from natural by-products from the food industry. (Waste not, wear not!) This finish also provides extreme resistance to the elements, without PFOAs or formaldehyde, naturally.
