Blue Harbour Pure Cotton Jacket
Out of Stock for replacement jacket
Bought Large size for my Husband and it was too small so returned it. I have now tried six larger M and S stores over the last few weeks for this jacket in an extra large and there is next to no stock in any size in any of these stores.
The website also shows no stock in any of the larger sizes which is very poor for a garment that has been heavily advertised.
When is there any likely to be stock of this jacket in store or on the web site ? Remember no stock no sale!!!!

Wax jacket not waterproof?
This coat will never be fully waterproof, but it is a stylish coat that can be worn during the Spring or Autumn when the weather is cool and dry and you need something to take the sting of approaching winter away from your body. It is not a winter coat for sure. I got caught out in a real wintry shower and the coat took hours to dry out. What I did when fully dry was to apply several coats of NikWax Aqueous wax for leather to it without damaging the coat. I use this stuff on all my shoes and boots and it works a treat. Just wipe the milky wax fluid over the coat, let it dry to a clear finish for two or three minutes and buff with a clean cloth. Try the water test and watch it roll off of the fabric. The other option is to give it a coating of wax cotton waterproof which NikWax do. I had the Aqueous wax to hand so used that. Next time I will get some of the NikWax wax cotton proofing and keep it well protected with that.

The coat is light and windproof if a tad warm .No way for excess heat generated by the lining to escape. The arms are OK if you have extra long arms if not you have to turn the cuffs up.A good coat spoilt by some rather basic faults.

Not even shower proof
I bought this wax jacket on the assumption that it provided some basic protection from the rain. Within 2 minutes of being in a light but perisistent drizzle my arms were soaked. I did not expect it to be goretex like dry but this is not acceptable. The special treatment given to the jacket is clearly just for cosmetic effect. On the positive side, fit is good, the style I liked very much but unfortunately its total impracticality renders it useless in the UK weather. Do not buy it unless you are happy to only go out when the sun is shining.
