“House-building, measuring, sawing the boards, / Blacksmithing, glass-blowing, nailmaking, coopering, tin-roofing, shingle-dressing, / … / The work and tools of the rigger, grappler, sail-maker, block-maker,” Walt Whitman, “A Song for Occupations” We created our Tradesman Aprons for all of you and more. http://www.oroxleather.com/products/tradesman-apron-canvas-tan-brown

“I tramp a perpetual journey, (come listen all!) / My signs are a rain-proof coat, good shoes, and a staff cut from the woods” – Walt Whitman. And you’ll probably want a Backpack Tote for the journey. http://www.oroxleather.com/products/backpack-tote-grey-black
