At long last, the 2020 IAP Smock sale is open!

Place your order at the
IAP Store

These are similar to the smocks obtained through previous group buys
  • Polyester fabric
  • Mesh underarm panels
  • Breast pocket with flap
  • Open rear hip pockets
  • Specially designed IAP logo embroidered in color. A special logo was commissioned for these smocks, and it was designed by @Jontello
  • Available Colors: Royal Blue, Light Blue, Navy Blue, Tan, Maroon, Grey, and Black
  • Available Sizes: S - XXXXL designed to be worn over clothing so they run quite large
  • For an additional $5, your name can be embroidered on the right front, on the pocket flap, or over the logo
This is a group buy, so it works as follows:
  • We take orders for a specified time period, in this case, about 3 weeks
  • Once the order period closes, we place the order with the vendor
  • Upon arrival, the smocks are shipped to individual buyers
  • Once the ordering window closes, individual orders cannot be canceled
Here is the planned timeline:
  • Ordering opens Sun Aug 30 and closes Sat Sept 19
  • Order placed with smock company on Mon Sept 21
  • Expected receipt of bulk shipment by mid-Oct
  • Expected shipment to buyers by Oct 30
Costs are as follows:
  • S-XL = $42, XXL = $43, XXXL = $44, XXXXL = $45
  • Embroidered name is an additional $5
  • US domestic shipping is $8.40 flat rate USPS priority
  • International shipping is actual cost, typically around $22.00 USPS first class package (other options provided)
  • The cost includes our online store and credit card fees, bulk shipping from the vendor to us, and a few dollars of cushion. Any excess over final actual cost will go to the IAP
Post your comments and questions in this thread, or contact @Dalecamino or I directly.

Thanks for your interest in this group purchase, and please join me in expressing appreciation for Chuck's extensive effort in making this happen!

Ordered two. Thanks.

I contacted Chuck a while back because my smock got shredded coming out of the washer. Thin and torn, many stains and patches. Loved my IAP smock. Had it for 11-12 years. I am retired. It was used daily. No way it could be salvaged. It has been 2-3 months. I still look for it when I enter my shop.

I regret not taking or posting a picture of it.

I am confidant I could have competed in the who has the most worn, stained and patched IAP smock.

Anybody have any pictures of theirs? It is a little creepy if they can stand up on their own.

Friends.... please be mindful of two things:

1. If you order the smock WITH your name, remember to provide
  • location for your name (there's a dropdown box on the item page)
  • exact text for your name (there's a text box on the item page)
2 . Provide your IAP username on the checkout page just as it appears at IAP.

We use a simple cart theme (i.e. free) and it doesn't have the smarts to scold you for not providing the location and text. It does ensure you enter your IAP username, but it doesn't make sure it's correct :)

THANKS!

Relative to size....

I am 6'3", 235lb, I usually wear 38-40 waist pants, and XL in t-shirts and sweatshirts
My LARGE smock fits comfortably over a sweatshirt
My X-LARGE smock is a comfortable over a heavy sweatshirt

If you already own a smock, consider posting similar info to help others trying to choose.

I'm on the fence about whether I need a medium or a small. Can any previous buyers provide help with that?
These smocks are sized to wear over clothing. So if you wear a medium shirt, order a medium smock. If you wear a heavy jacket when working in your shop, consider a Large.

Couple more thoughts...

I just put on a very heavy jacket, and my large smock fit, but not with much room.
For my size, I'd be very comfortable with an XL smock over a heavy jacket.

If you're a full XL in shirts, I'd stick with the XL smock
If you're just barely an XL, and you wear light clothing when you turn, consider the large

5'11" 240. Wear 38 in pants. Wear 2XL shirt. I have a two xl smock. I can comfortably wear it over a tee shirt, sweatshirt or thin rain jacket for wet turning. Fits me great. Jeff's advice for size very good above on different sizes.

My fondness for cheeseburgers pushed me to a 3xl but it had to be taken in.

Pinch points will be shoulders and stomach. Make sure you can move your arms and reach unrestricted.

Jeff,

Do you know if these smocks are the same ones that were sold by the AAW at the last MPG? Mine has a tag seems to be made by:

4-1-2 wear

I'm wondering because I like the size of the one I have and if it's the same I'd order the same size.

Lewis - these are by 4-1-2 Wear, and seem to be 100% identical to the AAW smocks.

Just ordered a navy blue one, thank you for doing this!
I was just talking to my daughter about needed a smock after turning some wet horse chestnut that left black stains all over my arms.

Bah, I clicked through too fast and missed the location box. Where/To whom can I provide that info after the fact?
