My mother is front end f&b for life, and has 2 hand made leather aprons that must be 15+ years old.

I have to wear a full length bistro apron in the kitchen, and have my doubts that leather would be at all functional. Heat, weight, and mobility would be... compromised...

When would a leather apron be a better functional choice in a kitchen environment?

The butcher at my previous restaurant loved his leather apron, but then again he was locked in his 40 degree basement "office" all day. I would worry about a leather apron on the line. Have you considered crafting leather knife rolls also?

Heavy leather aprons were worn years ago when meat was actually cut by hand  by people in house. If you missed or the knife slipped it was hard to penetrate the leather apron. It was a safety precaution more then anything. And it could be hosed down daily. I am not talking about those light little cutsey things they sell today for servers.

I know which leather aprons you guys are talking about. They're super thick and heavy, like something out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but I once found this one that I still have saved in my fav's, it looks light, but most importantly cute.

I think these aprons are pretty slick, just not very practical in the kitchen. I have seen a few bartender folks sporting the leather apron look, which is cool, as long as they dont have waxed mustaches.  

 

When I left my last job they gave me one of these as a parting gift.  Not all leather, but its got some cool accents and the canvas is strong.
