Calvera Tool Works likes to take a few liberties with the 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 or scars from pesky varmints or barbed-wire. They are designed for an easy break-in for many years of comfortable wear.

How they fit...
To start, you will find that the work aprons are far more streamlined than your typical muu-muu, one-size-fits-no-one style. A well-fit Calavera apron will cover the area between the top of your chest and 3-4 inches above your knees, providing protection from sawdust, wood chips, finishes and other assorted workshop mess while enabling full range of movement and easy access to pants pockets.
A note on caring for your work apron:
In the shop, all work aprons are finished 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.
