I don’t care what the weather (person) says…

Regardless of whether you’re ‘sick of sunshine’ – there’s little you can do to change the weather. Winter is upon us and the rain (then the snow – hopefully!) is now a significant part of our lives.

The old adage that there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing, is annoyingly true.  So here are our top tips on proofing your life prior to rain stopping play:


  1. Treat your waxed jackets to a bit of love – they need re-waxing regularly (we’d suggest annually – but it depends on how much you use it obviously).
  2. Sort your shoes and boots – clean and care for your footwear to protect them against the elements too. Leather is a skin (sorry to any vegetarians or vegans reading this) and so it needs to be cleaned and nourished via leather oil to stop it from cracking and to keep it supple and conditioned.
  3. Protect your bags – same thing applies – if you’re carrying leather bags, you want to keep them in good nick – not only to look good, but to keep them in good shape for the future. Again, they can be cleaned and given some leather oil.

Obviously we’d recommend Otter Wax as all their products are made from the highest quality ingredients.   Their Fabric Bars are the first and only water repellent wax that doesn’t utilise paraffin, silicone, or other petroleum-based synthetic ingredients. They are made of beeswax and a proprietary blend of plant-based waxes and oils.  Whilst their Leather Oil is a base of oleic-rich safflower oil and fortified with vitamin-e, which provides a deep shine while nourishing, protecting, and revitalising all types of leather.
