Back in Black - Pure Rock and Roll.  

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.

Main Panel: Chrome-tanned, oil-finished Tobacco
Thickness: 4.5-5oz whole hide leather

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.
