Classic Chef Apron, Navy with Tan Straps, Men or Women

$300 savings

These are not run-of-the-mill aprons.

The soft, durable, 100% cotton canvas fabric is produced on a 100 year-old handloom in my partner's hometown of Kannur, India.

The classic bib style apron is as practical as it is good looking. Includes two large pockets below the waist for cooking utensils, cell phone, and secret recipes. Features a blue ticking stripe embellishment.

Two small pockets near the top hold pens and pencils. Neck strap is fully adjustable. Waist strap is long enough to tie in back or front.

Aprons are unisex. Models are wearing the Classic Bib apron size. Durable, stamped steel hardware.

Each apron comes tied in custom Reluctant Trading printed cloth tape. Ideal for gift giving.

100% cotton. 200 thread count. Machine wash cold, tumble dry low. Durable and incredibly affordable.

We supply our aprons to top restaurants around the country.

    Quality apron with all the character and pizazz of a H&B.

    Quality apron with a beautiful color scheme and all the look of that other competitor that is way too much money. Get this one. You will not be disappointed.

    High quality, wonderful functionality!

    I’m loving my new cross-back apron from Reluctant Threads! Easy to use, comfortable to wear, generous coverage and exceptional workmanship. Thick enough to be a barrier without being bulky! I definitely recommend!

    Awesome Aprons

    These aprons are rad! I bought two of them and I gotta say I can compare them to my Hadley and Bennet aprons the quality is that good and there very comfortable. For the price I think I will be buying some for holiday gifts and a few more for myself. Keep up the amazing quality and bang for your buck guys 👌👌

    really nice aprons

    I have already worn my new aprons at work. I am a prep chef in a very busy restaurant in Los Angeles. I got lots of compliments. Aprons are my way to express myself within the confines of black t-shirt/black pants. I have passed your company along to several others as they liked them.
    Thanks again.
