We first saw Boxwood Design Studio's linen apron in the January/February 2006 Saveur Magazine. It's all linen, in a gorgeous dark flaxen hue, with a wide-tabbed cotton neck strap and tie-waist, and a big pocket in front. The linen is substantial, and absorbent.
Simple, beautiful, and high quality. They are $51, with a $5 fee charged if you want monogramming. Go for the plain one, a classic.
