Alistair,I thought about buying a leather apron but I remember when I wore a welding jacket at work it was a nightmare in Summer time,too thick and heavy,I wonder if an apron would feel the same,other than that I like the feel/toughness of leather.
@charles, That Duluth Trading Co. apron has a really similar strap system to what I was thinking of using. I was looking my dog's harness and thinking "hmmm…I think I could use this design for the apron straps". Duluth beat me to it but is still a little different. The method I have in mind will still allow for the use of leather and copper rivets but will keep the weight off the neck and still be adjustable. I'll post the photos when I finish it.
I thought about doing a leather apron but decided against it since I thought it might be a little too warm in the summer.
