What tool belt does Norm and Tom wear?

Hello All! I have been trying to locate the tool belt that Norm Abrams and Tom Silva wear on their respective television shows “This Old House,” "Ask This Old House" and “The New Yankee Workshop.” Does anyone know what brand and model number of the tool belts / aprons are? Please help if you can. Thanks ahead of time for all of your input.

Norm wears a McGuire-Nicholas #88427 tool belt.

Actually, we put the question directly (well, almost directly—-through the producers) to the guys, and both Norm and Tom said their tool belts are too old to read the brand name and even if they could read them they are probably no longer available.

But there may well be some sharp-eyed viewer out there who recognizes the brand and model.

i wouldnt pull too much hair trying to figure out what brand they are wearing. there are so many brands and variations of toolbelts on the market its not even funny. quality also. "kuny's" aka "CLC" is a construction industry standard. "occidental Leather" easily make the best most durable nail bags available. they outlast just about every brand in a professional setting hands down however they have a hefty price tag.. like they say the more you pay the better the quality

The New Yankee Workshop says that Norm's apron is

McGuire-Nicholas (#88427), 13-pocket, super capacity medallion construction apron.

You should really check out the Quick Belt System. TOH liked it enough to review it and publish it in their magazine. :D So check it out! You too might like it. It works great for work or play! ;) See it here http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20320358_20705344,00.html
Thanks again Meghan & Sal, TOH !

Hi Bart! 

It’s a regular Apple Watch.  The one he currently wears is Series One (the original one), but in new shows starting in October, he has a Series Three.  It’s a 42mm (larger size).
