Lead time on new aprons is currently running 10-14 days. 

Tough, veg-tanned leather work apron that'll start a little stiff, but break in quickly for a perfect fit. Though all our Work Aprons are built to endure years of hard work, the Mahogany has got just a little extra meat on its bones, if you'll pardon the expression, and is ready to suffer whatever extra special punishment you might dish out. Calavera Work Aprons feature 3 hard-wearing, adjustable strap options made from the toughest bridle leather we could find.

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. 

About our work aprons

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'll find it a good home, promise. 

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.
