The Call Me Mabie Edition

Since the moment we met in 2018, Justin Mabie has been one of our biggest supporters. Like a spark hit gasoline, and boom... a fantastic and real friendship ignited.

And though it seems like he's spreading the gospel of Calavera full-time, my man spends the rest of his time as world-class photographer and videographer, traveling the country in search of the stories behind the makers who are out there sweating blood to create great things through hard work and grit. 

So yeah, naming this beauty after Justin was a pretty easy decision. Great storyteller and an even better guy. 


All Call Me Mabie Editions come standard with the classic Calavera logo. But of course you could always choose to fly the Call Me Mabie flag if you so dare. 

More about the Black Tobacco at the heart

Built like a veritable brick house, the Black Tobacco is pretty popular around here. This rugged, oil finished leather work apron 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.

Throw whatever you got at this one. She'll outlast you by miles and miles.

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. We strongly endorse the Y-Back.

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. 

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.
