Do you wear an apron in the kitchen?

I've always worn one, much to the amusement of my family and friends. I must have a dozen different ones and even got into the business of making them several years ago. I'm currently working on a big order for a friend, who is giving them to all her son's teachers for Christmas.

On regular days no but when I get into the kitchen for big jobs (like holiday cookies) and I know I'll be in the kitchen ALL DAY, then I wear one. I have 3 that I bought at Sam's club so they are restaurant style.

According to SO, who is responsible for getting stains out of my shirts, not often enough.

No, but I do try to remember to wear a shirt that has already had oil splashed on it and is stained.

The problem isn't finding an already stained shirt to cook in, it's finding an unstained one to wear elsewhere.

Nope. No apron. Sometimes I'm not even wearing pants.

I used to.Bbut I got out of the habit. If I had a husband, it would be all i would be wearing when he comes home from work.

My sister had a bunch of the kind your grandmother wore. I think they are called 'bib' style. You have to put it on over your head and put your arms though the arm holes. It always had a pocket and like all grandmothers, she always had a hanky in it. If she was going to have company or it was holiday time, she would wear a fancy half one that ties around your waist. Her good china had a green band on the plates and her fancy ones had to match the color. The whole family teased her all the time about her aprons. And she always ironed her aprons.

I wear a full (bib) apron, both in the kitchen and the shop; but am interested in trying a lab coat. My wife prefers to wear a sleeveless smock.
