Men in Tuxedos

I'm 99.9% certain that none of the men in my family read my blog. Any who do might want to stop NOW.

 Don't men in tuxedos look wonderful? This photo of my son and husband was taken about 3 years ago at our son's wedding. I think it's a shame that they don't have opportunity to wear tuxes more often.

A couple of years ago I made my husband a tuxedo apron. He asked for an apron to wear once in awhile at work when the management put on special coffees for the staff. I came up with this idea, and he loved it.

 This year, for Christmas, I made three of these aprons. One for our son, our son-in-law, and our daughter's boyfriend. They all like to cook. When I asked my husband to model this yesterday afternoon for a photo (on a dark and rainy afternoon), he insisted that it wouldn't look authentic without a kitchen tool in his hand. Hence the barbecue flipper.

And on another note, Robin's Egg Blue is having a wonderful giveaway, all themed in her signature colour. Check it out. You'll be inspired.


  1. That's a manly apron if I ever saw one. I think G will like it.

  2. What a fabulous idea! They look great. I wonder if James Bond wears one?

  3. Marvellous idea... handsome cook you've got there!

  4. How cute that your hubby posed for you and even styled the photo with props!

  5. What a wonderful idea! Lots of potential with this one, Lorrie. Love it...

  6. Great idea...and you are so right...guys look grerat in tux's!
