Second Apron
This is my second shop apron that I have now purchased, and what a difference! The first one that I purchased was made of burlap, and had pockets around the waste. First mistake, pockets around the waste that do not have covers are pockets just waiting to be filled with lots and lots of saw dust from your table saw or any other machine tools that spews saw dust around!. Also, burlap also like to collect saw dust, while leather does not, big plus in my book. Love the apron and could not recommend it enough!

Long leathers shop apron
This apron does a great job and is comfortable and the pockets have flaps that keep wood shaving and dust out. The top pockets hold my rulers and pencils and will not fall out when I bend over.

Long Leather Shop Apron
It is Great! I have never worn an apron while wood working but it is handy to have more pockets for pencils and measuring devices with you all of the time. It also will take some of the abuse my close get while in the shop.

I could have done a cloth apron but the leather is much more durable and will gain "character" over time to reflect the fun of all of my various projects.

Great addition to the shop
I had been using a cloth apron that had open pockets and tied around the neck. It tugged on my neck, listed to the lower side pocket I kept my tape measure in and the lower pockets filled with saw dust. With this apron, the tie down is around the shoulders so is very comfortable. It is hefty enough that it doesn't list to one side when I store my tape measure in the lower pocket and the covered lower pockets keep the wood chips and saw dust out of them.

Will this apron fit a man 6'3" , 300 lb man?
Debbie W on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I doubt it. I'm 5'11" and 235, and it's just about right—though a little snug when I put it on to buckle it in back.
This comes in a longer and shorter version. Which one is this?
Gary on Nov 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Long .it is very comfortable and durable.lots of pocket space
How big of a waist size will it adjust to?
Jerry K on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Without an accurate measurement I would estimate 50", perhaps more. The left sash has the adjustment ability. The apron arrives with the left side sash anchored to the cross sash. By cutting the minimal anchor thread the left side connector can be slid along the left side sash thereby changing the size of the fit. If you can not make this apron fit I would suggest taking up some sort of weight reduction program and staying out of the shop.
Will I need to condition the leather, if so what do you recommend?
Steven T on Aug 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would leave it as is unless you are getting it wet. If so water proof with mink oil it will keep it very pliable and soft.
What type of leather? Country of origin?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Top grain cowhide. Very supple and comfortable highly recommended I use it all the time. Protects my clothing from wear.
It would have been nice to get a photo of the back!!!?
Eliza W on Nov 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is no back it is an apron.
My son is 5"7 will this be too big?
Cindy C on Nov 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, I'm 5'9" and it's fine
