I used to make aprons that were basically chaps with a bib front. The legs had a couple of sets of ties so the fabric (usually denim) would stay in place. There was a tie around the waist and adjustable neck band. There were large pockets sewn across the front below the waist and a pocket on the bib. I sometimes decorated the outer edge of the leg with fringed imitation suede and across the bib pocket. I did the same thing with lace for the "female" version.
They are durable and practical and can be made in any shade, but dark blue or black are more practical. I've also made them in fun prints, but they don't come in heavy fabrics. I don't have any on hand any longer, but you can imagine what they look like. Guys have said they feel "more guy" in chaps than a regular apron. A lot of chef would think that's nuts...but they don't do BBQ.
