Swedish celebrity chef Niklas Ekstedt has once again teamed with Swede bagmasters Sandqvist and C-Store for a heavy-duty apron billed for use behind a roiling barbecue, but clearly suitable for slaughterhouse toiling as well. This serves not so much a news flash—as this is the second run of the popular product—as a reminder that we like this apron and its implications.

Here we see the black version, made exclusively for Caliroots from heavy duty cotton canvas. The two leather barbeque tool holders and adjustable leather straps mean business, and we have an idea for that leather framed name card holder: Dip your pinkie in some animal blood, scrawl the word “chef” on a piece of heavy paper and slide it in there. It will complete the aura of a barbecue chef not to be trifled with. Furthering that quest, the apron comes with a booklet of recipes and Chef Ekstedt’s tips for grilling to your full potential. Available tomorrow at Caliroots.

More looks after the jump…
