The Mercantile is inspired by the aprons worn by both men and women in Grocery and Dry Goods stores up until the 1950’s to protect clothing during the working day.
A variation on our existing long apron, this mercantile uses a traditional hinged pocket seen on aprons during the 1940's which moves when you bend down, stopping anything inside falling out.
The pocket is trimmed with British leather for durability, this style also has a lower pocket with British Leather key loop.
The apron uses the whole width of the selvage and measures :
The apron is one of a numbered production run.
-13 oz Japanese loomstate red selvedge denim
-Dawson branded die set buttons
-Heavy cotton webbing tape
-Crafted in England
Wash care :
Dawson Denim recommend that you wash as least often as possible if you would like to maintain the colour of the Dry Denim. This fabric is likely to shrink by 5% on it’s first wash so make sure you wash in cold water separately to reduce the shrinkage as much as possible.
Log book :
Each of their aprons is sold with a log book inspired by the 1930’s car registration manual and driving license, this entitles the owner a free repair during the first 6 months if damaged.
