Eagle America has replaced traditional ties on its No-Tie Shop Aprons with adjustable hook-and-loop closures at the neck and waistband. Removing the ties, they say, is a safety measure to eliminate loose hanging ties which can get caught in machinery. The waistband closure on the No-Tie Aprons also has an elastic band for comfort and range of motion. The aprons are made from a machine washable twill that prevents woodchips from sticking to them and feature a center chest pocket with two pencil/pen slots and one 4×5″ slot for a calculator or notepad. The No-Tie Shop Aprons are available in 38″ and 44″ lengths and cost $29.99.
