Pocket Styles and Definitions
There's always a lot of talk about pockets... yet, somehow never enough talk about pockets. It really does come down to you, the user. How do you plan to use them? Do you like to carry a bunch of gear with you at every step? Or like me, do you prefer to keep things streamlined?
So here's a page (and gallery) dedicated to helping you sort through your options. As always, hit us with an email (email@example.com) if you still have questions!
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, a fantastic woodworker, teacher and friend. Basically one of our favorite human beings.
The Double Stacked Pocket: This is an add-on that gives you an extra pair of small compartments on the front of the Paolini Pocket or Standard Pocket. Double Stacked Pockets require the selection of either the Paolini or Standard Pockets.
Notes on Tape Clip and Towel Ring Placement
Wide Cut Aprons
Since Wide Cut Aprons offer a bit more space, we generally place Tape Clips and Towel Rings off to the left or right of the lower pockets, pushing them back towards the side of the wearer and out of the way.
Standard Cut Aprons
There are 4 options for Tape Clip and/or Towel Ring placement on Standard Cut Aprons... Upper and Lower, Right and Left.
If a Paolini Pocket is selected, Tape Clips and Towel Rings will generally be positioned on top (or front) of the actual pocket due to space limitations.
For a Standard Pocket (rectangular), Tape Clips and Towel Rings in the upper positions will be above the pocket. If the lower positions are chosen, they will be placed on the front of the pocket. .
