    for all my front

    Hello

    It did take the pressure off me, because I think for all my front I wasn't so comfortable with that kind of situation.

    ---What "for all my front" may mean in this context?

    It means "bravado" or putting a brave face on for the situation.

    "......for all my front...." = short way of saying "....despite the fact I made myself look at ease and in control...."
