The one glaring inconsistency between all the trends in heritage and workwear has been to a degree its inauthenticity. Many are donning work boots and rugged workwear as they forgo the true purpose of garment’s original design. That’s fine since after all it’s fashion, but if you want to get your hands dirty, Blackbird updated their previously released workshop apron with a new version. As a result of the work of Blackbird designer Billy Bartels, the work apron includes “hand-dyed, heavy, sea-foam green cotton” and scraps of heavy-duty flapped canvas pockets and two chest pockets. The apron is made entirely in Ballard, Washington thanks to the help of third-generation sailmaker George Broom. The Field House Trusty Workshop Apron II is available now at Blackbird.
