The ultimate, Downton Abbey-worthy work apron? We think so; Kelly Dawson and Scott Ogden of Dawson Denim have spent the last 15 years working in denim; they hand-make their selvage workwear aprons in their Brighton workshop UK using top-of-the-line Red line selvage from Japan. "Drop us a line for more geeky denim history anytime," they say. Every Dawson apron comes in a presentation box with a Log Book (you can return your apron to Dawson Denim if it needs a repairing). There are four apron models to choose from, all based on historical garments that the couple have collected over the years. To see the range, go to Dawson Denim . Above: The Mechanic Apron was inspired by WWII army issue; £95. Above: Each apron comes in its own presentation box, complete with a Log Book. Above: The apron features copper grommets, Dawson-branded die set buttons, heavy cotton webbing tape, and copper rivets.
