What passionate Beatles fan wouldn’t want to cook with the lads? Well, this was your chance to enjoy the Fab Four in the kitchen! The white,paper-like, fiber-layered apron allowed the fan to prepare delicious meals to their Beatles-heart desires.
The apron was offered in one standard size, 16” wide x 30” in length, and was secured with drawstrings around the back and flaunted strategically placed reinforced stitching throughout. The appeal of the apron was, of course, the repeating printed pattern of Beatles pictures set within stars,the names of the boys, music notes and staffs, and facsimile vinyl record discs. Song titles were printed on the front in black, endearing the cook to John, Paul, George, and Ringo by declaring: Hold Me Tight, I Want To Hold Your Hand, I Saw Her Standing There, and Not A Second Time.
Additionally, the apron’s drawstring range was up to 48,” and the backside was plain white with no design. The garment was almost sheer, and you could see through the backside of the apron to the images on the front of the apron.
The delicate apron was an officially licensed item, with ‘NEMS ENT LTD’ printed on it. The overall construction of the apron was quite fragile, so it probably wasn’t worn too many times before something started to loosen, tear, rip, fray or fall apart.
A rarer Beatles apron made in pink was mass-produced from the same cloth material that was later found woven into Beatles dresses. This apron version measured 21” wide x 20” in length and had 14” drawstrings on each side. This apron design featured printed photographs of all four Beatles with facsimile autographs, and song titles Hold Me Tight, All My Loving, and I Want To Hold Your Hand.
