Women like men who know their way around the kitchen for the same reason they like men who dress well. Those are the guys who can take a bunch of stuff and put it together to make something better. That goes for the right suit, shirt, tie, and shoes… or for the ingredients in your Hoisin based salmon glaze. It shows competence, and in a world of incompetent dolts landing women who are too frustrated to give a damn otherwise, knowing how to cook her a decent dinner is a huge advantage.
But that doesn’t mean you need to look like June Cleaver while doing so.
There’s nothing wrong with a man in an apron (unless it’s one of these. Then it’s very… very wrong). But if you really want to protect your clothes while ratcheting up the guy-factor, get yourself a chefs jacket. They’re simple, they cover your sleeves and the entire front of your shirt, and they just plain look better than some ratty old apron.
That, and if you get one in white, all your spills and splatters give it a great patina.
