We like to take a few liberties with our Walnut Work Aprons, so you can expect that no two are the same and that yours will start off with a character very much its own. Some are darker, some are lighter and some even feature the hide's original brand (those are our favorites). Plus, you should probably know that although they start off stiff as a board, they are designed for an easy break-in for many years of comfortable wear.
Color: Deep Brown - Walnut (shades vary)
Length Options: 30", 33" (Tall, XL)
(not to worry, the 30" works great on just about everyone, not just the tall folk)

Due to the current heavy demand on inventory, we will be producing the Walnut Work Apron in Y-Back models only until further notice. Trust us, this is the way to go anyway.
Y-Back Combines the comfort of the X-Back straps with a sturdy, adjustable belt for a perfect, secure fit. We strongly endorse the Y-Back.
What you should expect
At Calavera Tool Works, we take great pride in our work aprons, designed for those who work with their hands to make a living. They are, as some might say, a labor of love. And though great care goes into the handcrafting of each work apron, we will always err on the side of leaving a brand, blemish, scratch or other imperfection in the finished product rather than waste even a small amount of such a precious material. It is our belief that these aprons are meant to be used, and that these imperfections will enhance the character of what we expect to be one of your favorite investments ever.
But if for some reason you are in any way disappointed with the appearance or finish of your apron, we welcome you to return it for a full refund. We'll find it a good home, promise.
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 things may get a little sticky.
