Makers themselves, the husband-and-wife duo behind Leather By Dragonfly understand what goes into a good gift for a craftsman with swagger: exceptional quality, design and function.
Patrick and Michelle Melchior spend time choosing the perfect materials for the premium leather goods they handcraft in Ohio, including custom leather aprons. Based on years of client feedback, they created the Apprentice Workplace Leather Apron to include the most-requested pockets and other features from their custom line.
The Apprentice Workplace is an attractive solution that provides, right out of the box, superior protection and comfort for woodworkers, baristas, BBQ enthusiasts and other craftsmen and makers.
The Apprentice Workplace is 32” long and comes in sizes small-3XL. It is made from a hand-selected 2- to 3-oz. full-grain leather hide. Edges are hemmed with extra-strength, polyester thread along with riveted anchor points for durability, structure and protection.
The leather apron includes two pencil/pen pockets, a small upper square pocket and a large miscellaneous hand pocket. You choose a tape measure clip or multipurpose pocket for the left or right hand to reach. The tape measure clip is reinforced behind with a leather patch. Adjustable leather cross-body straps make sure the apron fits over anything worn for varying temperatures in the shop.
This apron is a tool that your favorite maker will use on every project. Or, treat yourself.
Szanto Desert Sands series 4550 chronographs
The Szanto Desert Sands chronograph collection was newly reintroduced with some upgraded features, now in a smaller size for today. The series brings to mind a time when British troops were stationed in North Africa (think Lawrence of Arabia for context) from around WWI up through the end of WWII. The PVD plated 316L stainless steel 41mm cases are available in black or antique gold that conjures up yesteryear perfectly, and one model has a new beige dial that lends a sepia tone effect to the overall look and fits the period ideally also. The watches feature a steel screw case back to help ensure 100 meters of water resistance, has a highly scratch resistance hardened mineral crystal, and runs on a dependable Miyota (division of Citizen) 6S21Japanese quartz 2-eye chronograph and date movement that will provide accurate timekeeping for years to come. They also feature an upgraded Italian leather straps with signature buckle that completes the vintage look and appeal of the series, and the straps have easy on/off fingernail spring pins that allow for strap changes in seconds with no tool needed, so one can change the look of the watch head easily with alternate straps.
Szanto is offering Swagger readers a special 25% discount with use of the code “Swagger” on this series (or any of their watches) on their website, just in time for gift giving, or perhaps just as a gift for yourself. Visit www.szantotime.com today!Buy now

Gray Jay Whisky Flies Into The Marketplace
There’s a new whisky player in town, Gray Jay, offering an exciting twist on an old traditional beverage.
It’s a drink as fearless as Canada’s national bird, for which it is named after, and as welcoming as the Great White North, where this drink is made.
With its smooth, sweet taste, and notes of vanilla and caramel, Gray Jay was designed to welcome newcomers to whisky. Meanwhile, its well-rounded complexity, and no added coloring, will embrace connoisseurs just the same.
As such, Gray Jay is flying in the face of convention, as it’s a drink that can be enjoyed in any form – not just neat, or with ice, but in cocktails, mixes or punches. It was created specifically for that kind of versatility, and an “any time” way of celebrating life. The company that produces Gray Jay, Fluid Assets, has put much thought into creating something that is as much for a brunch-time Caesar, a festive meal, a holiday toast, or a party (big or small).
You’ll be able to easily spot the gray glass bottle, unmistakably easy to find, featuring an embossing of this beautiful majestic bird.
Given its new niche, this could be the next ‘it’ whisky brand, and perhaps, just like the Gray Jay soaring in the skies, the beverage version might soon be flying off the shelves.

Even top chefs choose Woodford for its vast flavours, adding it to a glaze, or sauce to enhance any dish or cocktail. So, whether you sip it neat or on the rocks, in a Manhattan, or an Old Fashioned, take your time, and savor the taste of refinement this holiday season.
Woodford Reserve is usually available for under $50 coast to coast in three varieties: Bourbon Select, Double Oak and Rye. You can never go wrong sharing, gifting, or celebrating with Woodford Reserve.
