Squire Light Duty Workshop Apron - Waxed Cotton

$75.00 AUD


  • Black

    Perfect for long days tooling around the workshop, leaning into a big fabrication job, or busting gut in a hot pit bay trying to get the engine sorted for the next session, the Earnest Squire double-layer, waxed-cotton apron is equal parts tough, functional, and comfortable.

    The days of crawling around the shop floor and muttering about black holes swallowing 12mm sockets are over — various pocket options on the Squire mean that all the crucial bits and pieces can be kept close to the heart, literally. Soon enough, reaching into the right pocket for the right tool, fastener, or consumable becomes second nature, streamlining the work process and reducing unnecessary aggravation.

    Made from 100% 12oz duck cotton, the Squire is both washable and extremely durable, and the adjustable strapping system makes it simple to tailor the fit to your needs.

Spark Friendly

Unlike nylon or other synthetics, our cotton loves sparks. Carry out your day-to-day without the fear of pinholes from heat. Weld* and grind away with the confidence that if you spray our cotton, it will come out the other side looking as good as new. (*Light weld splatter, K-Canvas Apron recommended for heavy duty welding).

Stain Repellant Waxed Cotton Inner

Our cotton twill utilised on many of our products has been lightly waxed. Not to keep water out like motorcycle racers & sailors of the past, but to reduce oil, dirt and general staining. Cotton that stays looking fresh for much, much longer.

Heavy Duck Canvas Outer

Originally used for sailors’ heavy trousers, outerwear and even traditional boat sails, cotton duck is a weighty, plain-but-strong woven canvas.
It loves sparks, and will keep on going.. whatever your day to day can throw at it.

Phone Protection

Our unique pocket located high up features reinforced padding to keep your gadgets away from day to day impacts.

Stain Repellant Waxed Cotton Inner Layer

300GSM medium weight breathable cotton. As if our cotton being spark friendly, light on the shoulders and extremely durable wasn't enough, we have finished the inner layer off with a light waxing.

See that slight reflective sheen? That's the wax doing its job to repel stains and dirt. By keeping dirt off the inside, each time you pick up the apron your clothing will remain clean, to keep you looking fresher for longer in the workshop.

Heavy Duck Canvas Outer Layer

Unlike traditional canvas, our tightly stitched weave is great for avoiding snags and tears. It is second only to leather in the class of true workwear fabrics in its ability to block the wind (which can be more important than anything on a blustery winter jobsite). And if your day to day slog features regular grinding or welding in the shop, have no fear light sparks or slag won’t ruin our fabric, unlike nylon or other synthetics that end up with tiny pinholes everywhere in the same situation.

It gets better with age. While slightly stiff at first, it won't take long to adapt to your wear patterns and become a durable second skin.

Pad Protected Smartphone Pocket

Purpose built smartphone pocket is located up high to keep away from day to day impacts. It also features an added layer of padded protection to keep your daily gadgets out of harms way as you work.

It's fully velcro flapped to keep debris out and to make sure your phone doesn't fall out every 10 minutes. Fits up to iPhone 11 Pro Max sizing.

Triple Section Lower Pocket

Storage in all the right places. Triple compartment lower pocket features two large easy to access tool pouches and a zip closure lower section to keep fiddly hardware off the floor while you work.

Stop spending half your time searching for tools/bolts, and get more done.

Cross Strap System

Solid strapped cross back design and soft-edge webbing removing pressure from the neck and creates a feather light apron that you'll forget your wearing.

Quick-release buckle is easy to adjust and quick to remove.

Utility Pockets + Tool Loop

Deep bar tack re-enforced triple utility pocket for stashing pens, pencils, fabrication rulers and other small essentials.

As well as a tool loop, ideal for hanging gear when in awkward situations.

A versatile item that's essential in every workshop.

Works wonders when I hop into the garage for a ******

Perfect to throw over your clothing when you hop into the garage for a quick job. Saves your clothes from all those greasy marks. Works as well stand alone, in the summer season over your t-shirt, or what not.


Perfect! Glad to hear the Squire Apron is working well for you and saving some of your t-shirts too Sindre :D Thank for taking the time to share your experience so far mate - Taz.

The Bomb!!

Love everything about this apron. I never realised how ill fitting my previous aprons had been, until wearing this bad boy. Fits like a glove.


Great to hear Jared! Glad to hear the Squire is already a firm favourite for you =D - Taz.

What a total badass apron.

I love it so much in fact I made a video about it on YouTube; https://youtu.be/eho2XAhx0pQ The longer I have it, the more useful it becomes. The only thing I didn't like was a lack of hammer loop, so I added one with a scrap of leather and some copper rivets. The waxed canvas is so tough, I had to punch the rivet holes through with a leather punch. My next concern is that when I come back for the short sleeve overalls I won't need the apron as much anymore....

So good, so happy

Nice fit, nice design and nice range of pockets and whatnot. Really comfortable and will last for an age


Thanks for the Earnest Squire apron review Aaron! Hope you enjoy getting an age's use out of it and save time having those often used tools on hand/in pocket instead of buried somewhere odd on the workbench.
