The Gentleman's Apron: Look Suave, Get Dirty

Illustration for article titled The Gentlemans Apron: Look Suave, Get Dirty

If you are about to engage in a stereotypically manly pursuit, you're going to have to get a little dusty, or dirty, or covered in lead-based paint or something. And while you could throw on an old, mustard-stained sweatsuit, you could also preserve a little bit of your dignity with the dashing Gentleman's Apron.


Made by Korea's TRVR, the Gentleman's Apron is made from durable waxed canvas with four real leather pockets and straps, perfect for holding the hammers and sharp implements you are bound to need as you go about your manly duties of fixing things, breaking things, and fixing things you broke while fixing other things. It even has a special sleeve to keep the pencil that you use to draw smiley faces on your handiwork, or whatever you use that for.

The apron, and all the glory and all the macho self-confidence it affords, can be yours for $68. And if you're looking for a place to stash it, might we recommend that industrial-strength rebar hanger in your closet? [TRVR via Cool Material]

Old timey vintage hammer? It's called ACE/LOWES/HOME DEPOT, google 'basics for a toolbox' (laugh/cry when your hipster ass picture is the number #1 photo result) then go to said store and purchase those items.

Working around the house doesn't require a specific outfit.

The douchebag that wears this will also show up to help someone most likely carrying an old metal tackle box (one that they purchased on Etsy under the heading of 'vintage tool box'). Said tackle box will contain a hammer, one flathead screwdriver and a shitty tape measure that can stay up past 4'.

How do I know all this information? My neighbor asked if he could learn/help to install french doors I was putting up on my house. Though he wasn't wearing a leather apron he, in addition to the tackle box, had on skinny jeans and a flannel shirt.
