Pocket Options: 

Streamlined Plain Front: This is the classic Calavera style... no muss, no fuss. Still, all aprons come with a standard-issue upper pocket for pens, pencils, small rulers and such. 
Lower Pocket (with or without flap): A traditional rectangular pocket style that hews tight to the main apron panel to prevent accumulation of dust and debris, with or without the inclusion of the optional upper flap. 
Paolini Pocket: Generously sized, side-entry pouch design prevents dust and debris from collecting, without the need for flaps. If we were going to rock the pocket, this would be our choice. Named after Gregory Paolini, who is a fantastic woodworker and teacher, as well as one of our favorite human beings. 

 

Strap options: 

  • X-Back: For an incredibly comfortable fit, choose the adjustable 1" harness-style straps with quick-release. 
  • Y-Back: Combines the comfort of the harness style straps with a sturdy, adjustable belt for a perfect, secure fit. 

Tape Measure Clips

See gallery for positioning options. Also, please note that all TMC's default to the higher position when lower pockets are selected. You know... irrefutable laws of physics and what not. That and there's only so much real estate to go around. 

Our Approach to Our Work

At Calavera Tool Works, we take great pride in our work aprons, designed for those who work with their hands to make a living. They are, as some might say, a labor of love. And though great care goes into the handcrafting of each work apron, we will always err on the side of leaving a brand, blemish, scratch or other imperfection in the finished product rather than waste even a small amount of such a precious material. It is our belief that these aprons are meant to be used, and that these imperfections will enhance the character of what we expect to be one of your favorite investments ever.

But if for some reason you are in any way disappointed with the appearance or finish of your apron, we welcome you to return it for a full refund. We're pretty certain we can find it a good home. 

A note on caring for your work apron:

In the shop, we finish all our work aprons with Dr. Jackson's Conditioning Cream. A modest application will do good things to worn or dry areas. For hotter, dryer regions (or applications), we recommend modest doses of Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner with Beeswax. Don't apply too much or it'll get a little sticky.
