The Yarmouth Apron - Moss
Yarmouth Stores have made aprons for all different trades since 1898. The Oilskin Apron features in the archive as far back as the 1930s “made from stout rough finish oilskin” always with a “large pocket stitched down the middle of the pocket."
The Yarmouth Apron is made from a heavy 12oz rugged twill cloth, made in the UK by renowned waxed fabric mill Halley Stevensons est. 1864. It uses their Artica finish which is a dry wax, offering water resistant properties like traditional wax , but without the waxy feel.
The fabric can be reproofed to last generations. The apron is adjustable on the shoulder straps and waist making it easy to find your perfect fit. We’ve used heavy herringbone tape for the ties, our traditional brass Bib & Brace fastening at the shoulders, and our Oilskin branded brass studs. There’s a generous bib pocket, and a deep angled waist pocket, both faced in the heavy herringbone twill.
