Chase Seamless is the brand of vintage feed bag chosen for this apron.
There are no patches on this bag. The back does have numbers on both sides of the back bottom edges. Otherwise, this bag is fairly clean, but keep in mind it is still vintage and there are the usual spots and marks associated with this type of feed bag, as shown in the last photo.
The neck strap and waist ties are made from cotton webbing. Cold water wash and line dry are recommended to prevent fading and shrinking.
The apron waist is 35 inches.
The length is 38 inches.
The ties are each 30 inches. This is shorter than many of the other feed sack aprons of this type.
Please use measurements to determine sizing. Many men choose this style of apron for cooking or grilling.
Henry Chase, who founded the Chase Bag Company in 1847, worked with John Batchelder to develop a chain stitch machine-sewn flour bag by 1849. The Chase Bag Company of New York bought several other mills and ended up with branch factories at Buffalo, Toledo, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Dallas, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Memphis, Goshen, Chagrin Falls and Boston.
* Please keep in mind this apron was created from an authentic vintage cloth sack. Photos show the design and print darker than in actuality. While the apron is described as accurately as possible, due to the vintage quality there may be age marks not noted specifically. Also, finding some or many seeds or feed pieces caught in the fabric is quite common. The bags have been washed at least once and many seed/feed pieces have already been removed, but some may remain.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
