Check out all of our apron colors and styles

We're excited to offer our own classic chef's apron. And make no mistake, this is no run-of-the-mill apron. 

The soft, durable, 100% cotton fabric is produced on a 100 year-old handloom in my partner's hometown of Kannur, India. To achieve a natural feel, no starch is added to the yarn at the weaving stage. 

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 are now supplying these to top restaurant chefs around the country.

    This is the one to buy.

    I’ve looked at many. Some more pricey than others. Some with waxed canvas. Some are cross back, some over the neck. This one is the one you should buy. Quit looking around and just do it. Excellent color choices. Great fabrics that will obviously wear well over time. The cross back is a great fit and is adjustable. Most I looked at were too long. This is an inch or two shorter than many which was perfect for me. C’mon. Now’s the time to stop staining your clothes with grease and oil splatters and look snazzy doing it. Scott and the Reluctant Trading Experiment crew did the hard part for you. Now you just have to chose the color way.
