Dear Men…

We decided to pursue you. Men buy our Barn Apron. But we wondered what else you might want. We wondered what specific needs you had as compared to our female customer population. We asked you for input on our aprons. You were great at giving it and we loved the input. Here’s a sampling of your responses.

  • There has to be pockets, a lot of them and different size pockets. I have different types of stuff.
  • The top edge of the pocket always wears out.
  • I don’t do bows.
  • I don’t want to tie anything.
  • If the chest pocket is square, I hit my chin pulling something out. Nobody wants to punch themselves in the face.
  • Some day’s my belly is bigger than others.
  • I need long.
  • Where are the mens colors?
  • Why can’t the men have no ties?
  • When I’m working, I don’t want a knot at the back of my neck. It bugs me.
  • I don’t want it tight around me, anyway to make it loose?
  • Can it hang like my shirt?
  • It will go in the wash, right?
  • Can you make criss-cross back ties?
  • I want to be comfortable.
  • Does it have to be stiff and scratchy?
  • How long can you make it?


So here is what we came up with for you to try.

We found a heavyweight twill with a soft brushed feel to the front. Strong for you and soft for the woman who wants a hug. We added pockets within pockets to hold layers of stuff. We added a chest pocket with two entries to it. We added twill tape to the top edge of the pockets for extra coverage to withstand the traffic of a busy pocket.
