    Classic Chef Apron, Olive with Tan Straps, Men or Women

    Beautiful Product

    I love this apron! Very well made and extremely comfortable. The costumer service is excellent as well!

    My new favorite cookwear

    I love it! The texture and the color of the textile are just terrific, substantial without being stiff or heavy, a subdued shade of crimson that is nonetheless vibrant. The cross-back style is still easy to quickly remove and put right back on as needed, without any fussiness. I particularly look forward to wearing it this summer as it’s really nice not to have a strap against the back of your neck during tee-shirt weather. At just shy of 6’2”, I chose the tall style, but think the standard would have worked just as well. I’ve definitely got maximum coverage, but wouldn’t foresee the issue of having to tie this too high around your waist as happens with some other unisex aprons of this style for someone who is sorta (but not hecka) tall. Functional pockets with sturdy steams are also a huge plus. Getting ready to send a couple of these as gifts!

    Love it (:

    Cutest apron ever! Very flattering but also comfortable and light ♥️

    The greatest and most-bestest apron that has ever been aproned.

    Fabric feels very durable as well as the straps.
