Stanley and Sons, the Brooklyn based apron and bag company, have been under the spotlight a lot lately. Their handmade aprons and bags are top notch each made by hand using antique Singer sewing machines and a hammer. Each item is sewn using deadstock fabric or repurposed vintage bags and hand riveted with nothing more than a hammer and elbow grease. Chris Grodzki and his one employee, Lindsey, make each and every bag in the Stanley and Sons Brooklyn basement studio. So each bag is a very time consuming process, which is obvious by their 3-4 week wait time. But if you don't want to wait you can find their aprons and bags at Hickoree's Hard Goods (online and at their Upper West Side J. Crew pop-up), Luddite, Quality Mending Co., Steven Alan, Bows + Arrows and Mohawk General Store.
