Have the ones from all the schools I've attended but don't wear them.
In my own kitchen, no, never.
When I work professionally and am behind the scenes I do to save my chefs jacket and black pants. Then if I have to go to the front of the house I take it off. I've also been known to keep an extra clean and pressed jacket for greeting at the front of the house and wear my gnarly one in the back.

I have three that I wear frequently, all bib style. I have my blue and white striped apron (English style, like the "staff" on Ramsey's F Word) I bought a long time before culinary school and have worn at every back of house job since. Keeps my coats presentable if I have to face the public. It has been modified in the past couple of years with a patch that reads White Trash

I wear a red apron with the name of my company embroidered on the bib when I teach classes.

At home, I have a black apron with an embroidered Skull and Bones sitting in Hot Rod flames.

I make mine myself.

My aprons are easily adjustable via the drawstring type neck/back ties so one size fits children to adults and they are totally reversible.

I gave two of them to each of my aunties for Christmas one year, and have made them for gifts to my church kitchen, friends, and to sell at fundraisers.

These are the ones I made my aunties with the matching towels and potholders I made.

For my birthday a few years ago my friends made me an apron with all there handprints and then they all signed it. It's one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever gotten. But it's too pretty, so I never wear it.
