On Father’s Day, surprise Dad with a gift that’s as useful, rugged, handsome and dependable as he is.

Orox Leather Company’s Tradesman Apron is designed and handcrafted in Portland by Orox, a fourth-generation leather company. The artisan apron was originally made for leatherworkers in the shop, then added to the collection at the request of customers.

Crafted from U.S.-sourced leather, waterproof waxed canvas and U.S.-made Cone Denim, the aprons are the highest quality.

They’re available in four styles, all of which feature Chromexcel leather pockets and ties, English bridle straps, solid brass rolling buckles and rings, and copper accents. At 36-by-28 inches, it’s got Dad covered for working in the shop or manning the grill, and will last until he becomes a granddad.
