At Live for Tweed, we offer a fantastic selection of both preloved and second-hand wax and quilt jackets. Wax jackets are well known for being totally weatherproof and windproof - perfect for outdoor activities such as walking, hunting, farming or shooting. Not to mention, they also make great fashion statements when worn with jeans! On the other hand, quilt jackets are great for casual wear, such as when paired with jeans or trousers. While they may not provide the same waterproof protection as wax jackets, they can be insulated and padded to keep you nice and toasty in the winter months.
We source our wax and quilt jackets from top brands such as Barbour, McOrvis, Green Belt, Walker & Hawkes, Joules, Rydale and Jack Murphy. You can rest assured knowing you’re investing in quality items that are both stylish and functional.

Our Promise 

Each used clothing item on our website has been diligently selected and vetted by our team at Live for Tweed. Our meticulous checks ensure that all our customers get the best quality second-hand, vintage, preloved clothing possible, guaranteeing both condition and life span for each garment. We are devoted to ensuring that our customers always have access to the finest quality clothing.




Before buying any item from our Live for Tweed store, we highly suggest that you measure a similar garment you already own or wear for accurate results. All measurements for our items are based on when the garment is laid flat and relaxed, and may be an approximation. We may occasionally recommend a certain size to fit a small, medium or large size label, however, this could depend on the fit needed, and what type of undergarments are being worn, so be sure to check your measurements first. Additionally, one often forgotten element is the sleeve length, which may vary from size to size - make sure to take this into consideration as well.

Top Tip – Allow room for undergarments, on the occasion we do recommend a size to fit if it has been labelled as a small, medium or large. However, this can vary by individual dependant on undergarments worn and desired fit needed, so please check your measurements before purchasing. 
Top Tip – Sleeve length – This is often not checked and overlooked by customers and sleeve lengths can vary dependant on size.
