Built on our Classic design, the Back in Black started as a limited run and ended up becoming one of our most popular aprons. To be fair, swapping the front and back pockets and adding some black d-tabs is nothing earth-shattering, but we think it looks pretty cool and think you might as well!
At its core, our Tobacco apron is rugged, oil finished piece of leather awesomeness that feels broken-in right out of the gate for a lifetime of comfort and protection from sawdust, splinters, spills, errant flying what-not or whatever else have you. Features 2 hard-wearing, adjustable strap options made from the toughest bridle leather we could find.

A note on oil-finished leather:
This leather starts out extremely soft, with an immediate broken-in feel and fit. Please be aware that oil-finished leather has the potential to stain light colored clothing due to it's varying, but high content of, well... oil.
