Aprons: Do you use one?

I have an adorable polka-dotted apron I got from etsy. I only use it when baking. (I seem to get flour everywhere)

I love my Hedley&Bennetts, with one caveat:  pay attention to weight.  Maybe it's not necessary with the cross-back, but if the thing is on your neck, and you plan to be in it all day . . . some of them are a lot heavier than others.  I seem to be sensitive to weight on my neck, and I learned this the 80-plus-dollar way.  

 

People like Tilit a lot, but my beautiful red Tilit fell apart quickly.  I'm sure it was defective, but have no idea whether that is a common problem there.

 

I have two linen pinafores (one is rough linen), which I wear for the hot weather.  I echo something someone said upthread -- the drape will slacken as you bend over, so take care if you're near fire or something like that.  And, let's not kid ourselves.  Linen is not a textile that ages well.  

 

My "dress" apron is AOS.  It's shiny black tablecloth material, with hot-pink stitching.   

 

And my dirt apron (in my life it's not for food, it's for dirt work) is from HandyMaam.  I love this apron.  It's priced totally crazy, like a lot of, you know, American-Maker-Hipster.  But I do love it:  https://handymaamgoods.com/collections/workwear/products/the-drapron

 

I think it would work well for barbecuing or frying or work where the fabric needs to be thick.
