|This is a list of frequently asked questions. If you're question isn't answered here please contact us.
Q. Are your aprons and vest actually made in the U.S.A?
A. Yes!! The cotton is grown, milled and dyed here, never leaving the U.S.A. Our fabric, thread, buckles, boxes, bags are all American made. It is then sent to our factory and sewn by real Americans. No sweatshops!!
Q. How can you sell the same apron as a competitor for a considerable lower price?
A. We keep our overhead low by buying in large quantities. The majority of our inventory is warehoused in New Jersey and we own the building. We have additional facilities in Georgia, California and North Carolina but we do not have high price leases or hefty storage fees.
Q. Can I get custom aprons made?
A.We carry many more aprons than are listed on the site. What you see here are the most popular and best sellers. If we do not have an apron that you want, we can custom make it! A large portion of our business is custom work with a turnaround time in as little as 7 to 10 days. Please contact us for more information. We will be more than happy to help you!
Q. I found the same apron for less somewhere else (highly unlikely!). Will you match their price?
A. Nobody beats our prices, period! Yes - We will match any legitimate price on the same item, same manufacturer and same quality. Just send us the link or web address and we will verify the information. The item must be available for purchase and in stock on the competitor site.
Q. How do I know if the apron will fit me?
A. Most of the aprons are one size fits most. In our experience, these cover about 85% to 90% of the public. Our models range in height and weight and we tried to show a mix of body types for reference. Some aprons are also available in special order larger sizes. Please contact us for more details.
Q. How long does it take for imprinting to be completed?
A. Most imprinting will be completed in 7-14 days. Please contact us if you need more information.
