This past Monday, we celebrated our first ever School of Hustle!! What's that, you ask? Well, with Hedley & Bennett turning five, we wanted to celebrate in a bigger way than last year (remember thecarnivalwe threw?) But we also had this idea for School of Hustle in the back of our brains... a way to give back, to facilitate knowledge and really bring together the amazing community that we're a part of.
Chances are if you've heard about our 5th birthday, you've also heard about our newest apron that we released in honor of it, EVERGREEN. It's made with a 10 oz hunter green brushed bull denim and is the perfect combination of super soft yet strong fabric. Our favorite part has to be the awesome crossback straps that feature both premium leather and 100% cotton webbing, because being comfortable and looking like a badass should go hand in hand. 💪
Meet Galen Garretson, the badass founder and owner of Town Cutler, a supplier of professional-quality knives and sharpening services in the Bay Area. We're extremely excited to work with such a passionate hustler who reps #ApronSquad. We asked Galen a few questions to learn more about how he got started in the knife business and the advice he has for other entrepreneurs! 🔪 We're on a mission to highlight all the different craftspeople, artisans and makers who wear H&B loud and proud so you can look forward to more features like this in the future! #MakerSeries
Did you hear?! We're turning 5️⃣ !!! So we figured what better way to celebrate than looking back on all of the awesome people, events, and moments that got us to where we are today? Let's travel back in time and see how far we've come! 🎉
The Apron Idea- While working as a line cook in two kitchens here in LA,Ellenis inspired to design a functional, badass apron.
3 days, 300 miles, and lots of money raised for No Kid Hungry?! Sign us up!!! 📋 Chefs Cycle is a bicycle ride all about fighting childhood hunger outside of the kitchen by bringing together hustlers from the food industry, and we couldn't be bigger fans of this awesome event 💪
We're BIG fans of color here at The Apron HQ, so when the idea for our COLOR Collection came about, it just made sense, especially since each apron is inspired by a different kind of fruit. We pulled together some of our favorite recipes for these badass fruits so you can totally crush it the next time you're in the kitchen with them! 🙌
I went back to Mexico City after not having been there for quite some time, and I was over the sun, moon, and stars to get back to my somewhat-hometown. I call it somewhat because technically I'm not from Mexico City, but I like to say that I am because I lived there for some years, from ages 18 to 22.
