Updated on November 9, 2014

What Do You Think? Real Men Don't Wear Aprons, Right?

There are so many amazing aprons for men available that the choice seems almost endless. On this page you will find a selection of humorous but tasteful aprons and a debate about whether or not men actually do wear aprons...I hope you will participate.

Hey, Monkeybrain! Real men DON'T wear aprons. Doesn't matter how many fantastic men's aprons you find, Brenda. I'm not going to put one on, no way, no how!

But maybe you don't feel that way. Maybe you are a MAN WITH AN APRON in which case you're going to want to vote for them PLUS you are going to enjoy all of the manly aprons that you will find on this page.

A shopping page in thin disguise, this page is really intended to be a bit of fun and to help you find the apron you are searching for because real men DO wear aprons!

P.S. If you like this apron,
I won't tell just go ahead and

to see if it is available from Amazon.

(I'm only asking because it just might help to explain the results of this debate.)

Be you Male or Female?

      The definition of real men is defined by what he has in him. A confident men will wear aprons while "real men" would scowl just to show they are men.

      Congratulations! Your lens has been featured on the Funniest comments on Squidoo. Although your commenter, 'cougargirl' failed to win the much coveted, by me, 'Purple Cow Award', ... funny, but just not good enough, I saw fit to meet the challenge again and write a funnier comment in your poll here. I was happy to do a full write up about your lens and my winning this much coveted award again! No matter what you might think .... I am not greedy or stingy, just well-deserving! If anyone thinks they can write a funnier comment in a Squidoo lens, then I throw down the gauntlet .... Bring it on!

      Real men wear aprons. Like women, men are pretty sensitive when it comes to staining ones clothing. Thus, aprons are a necessity. Besides, with these cool and masculine apron designs, who would not want to own and wear one of these?I really like this discussion. Rated 5*Hope you could visit my lenses and become a fan of my fb page . Thanks

      These aprons are a hoot! I don't see why a real man wouldn't wear these. They don't have ruffles on them. They are pretty darn manly. Great lens, Brenda!

      I've never seen my man wear an apron although one of my sons has a cool canvas apron with a big fish on it that says, "Real Men Fish and COOK." He does wear it on occasion too!
