An apron? What? Yes. If you’ve ever undertaken a household repair project by yourself, you immediately discover that we humans are cursed with only two hands and not enough pockets. This may be the next best thing.
I just moved into a “new” home originally built in the 1930’s. Can you say “Honey-Do List?” However, this simple apron is likely to take the sting out of any chore. I was sent the Tan Suede color.
- Top Grain Leather
- Two large front pockets for nails
- Two Leather loops for hammers or other tools
- Two Tool Pockets behind leather loops
- Tie straps
Also available in black or brown suede.
The overall width of the apron measures just over 21 inches wide…
…and about 8-1/2″ tall. The pockets are about 6″ deep.
Each pocket is roomy and generous. As you can see, the suede is flexible and supple, yet highly durable.
One small touch I nearly missed: The strap starts off at about 13/16″ wide, and tapers to a smaller width towards the tips. Leather straps measure 48″ L.
The apron weighs just a tad over 13 ounces.
Here’s your average schmoe homeowner on a weekend in sweatpants, modeling the North Star Leather Co. Nail Apron. (Don’t laugh at my wimpy 7 ounce hammer.) Plenty of leftover strap, as you can tell (waist: mid-30’s)
I absolutely love the North Star Leather Nail Apron. It’s simple, timeless, and utterly practical. Got a handyperson in your life? What are you waiting for? Get one! Or, treat yourself and get to work.
