I have a friend who is married to a firefighter so when I ran across this fabric at Nancy's Notions, I ordered both the pattern and the unique fabric, which is called Fireman Guys' Fabric. Sewing time: a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon.
While I know you will be distracted by the hunk, here's the pocket detail, a double one on the front.

The accent fabric also appears on the ties and the

for a big bow.
This is my 2013 return to sewing. Friend Darliss and I are both happily re-introducing ourselves to our sewing machines. I've been using mine to piece kid quilts (here and here). Darliss is busy catching up on mending.
There are so many fun kits for sewing I'm excited to plan more projects like the apron, maybe a tote or two.
Oh, and if your hunk or your friend's hunk is not a firefighter, check Nancy's Notions for other occupational fabric. Not sure you'll find an architect or an accountant, but . . .
