I have used Bragard aprons (good) and that chicy, expensive LA brand (not worth the money. The Kentaur Bib Apron is brilliant. No need to iron. Yay! Looks professional but not intimidating when I work as a personal chef in private homes. Yet, it is sturdy. Nice details. I intend to buy one in another color. Since I am tall, it would be good to have a longer option.
