WAX ON Snapback
- Martexin Original Wax Canvas Upper
- Blanket Stripe Underbrim
- Unstructured Crushable Upper
We found a dozen of these, long sold out, WAX ON snaps in one of our boxes. We made them back in 2011, and at that point, I think we were the first to use Wax Canvas on a snapback or modern hat shape. We were inspired by the old Filson Tin Hats.
The Martin Family has been in business in the US since 1838. This is THE wax cotton. From their website...
"Martexin Original Wax is a cotton-based fabric impregnated with Martexin® wax proprietary mixture, a unique formula that gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather, while cotton fibers allow it to breathe. As the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina, which enhances the look of traditional outerwear, hats, and bags. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time."
