Aprons for Men

‘An Englishman’s home is his castle’ is an often cited maxim – does that make the kitchen the armoury where culinary battle commences? Now as any good soldier would tell you, you should go into battle appropriately dressed and our aprons for men are specifically designed to protect the budding male chefs of the family.

The advent of the grilling culture adopted from our antipodean friends in Australia and our next door (well 4,417 miles to the west anyway!) barbeque obsessed neighbours in the USA means many a British man can now be seen with utensil in one hand, gloves in the other and an intense look of pure chef-like concentration ready to commence the cooking! Seemingly for modern man, as well as the outdoor the kitchen is now a place of sanctuary and inspiration in a culinary sense, where you can retreat to create your latest delectable masterpiece for the tastebuds.

The Stripes Company knows that no matter how competent you may be in the kitchen and garden there is always the chance of spillage or splashback and to combat this have an extensive range of aprons for men. Whether you are a fashionista or simply a practical person our striped aprons for men will look great on you while being functional and providing protection. Our colourful one size fits all aprons for men will bring a dash of colour, a sprinkle of fun and a soupçon of dazzle to any dinner party, informal gathering or just plain old dinner for the family.
