Default Aprons XL ;)

I know this may be a stupid question. I usually just wipe on my sleeves at home ;). I know we have some plus sized gentlemen here, I have never felt so at home ;)

I have never bought an apron, I see 24" wide and that sounds small, I can't find one I can try on. What size do you big boys get. I am 6'8" 330#

I'm 5'5" and weigh a buck thirty two, so I'm no help.

I'd go to the closest Wal*Mart and try them on.

They may or may not have these in the store, but at least you could get a feeling for size.

What's even funnier, is that I almost copy pasted THE EXACT SAME apron into my post to make a comment on what I'd choose.

I went with this one instead though...

I am large as well...6'1" 270....my wife begged me to find a larger apron as I was just ruining clothes...At Rest Depot they have a red and black heavy duty plastic/vinyl apron that is also heat resistant and it is the first apron that actually fits my round shape. I dont tink it is too much wider than others but as they say its all about the cut.

I am serious, I do enjoy the joke though. I have an apron a friend gave me years ago that has a pig on it looking over his shoulder with a sh|t eating grin that says Master Baster, it hilarious but it is not practical. I would prefer one that is not vinyl or rubber because I need it to breath, big guys sweat :)

Chefworks butcher's apron - they sell them at Restaurant Depot. (6'4 - 325lbs) fits me fine.

I've been told my apron looks more like a bibb than an apron. I don't care.. it sets off my eyes :)

You could wear the one your friend gave you backwards.
Restaurant supply places usually have aprons. If not, get your wife to make you one. Or I will make you a couple if you need.

If someone in your family can sew, you could make a custom sized one from whatever fabric or color you want to.

Dang, you guys are big!

And creepy....



I thought I was bad having been sent a pink Thermapen and having to use a pink case for my iPhone.

But, hey, that outfit might go along.
