 I have a denim apron I rarely wear except when using the metal lathe or welding- fire has never been a problem.

 I usually wear old shirts and shorts I keep just for the shop and the around the house work.

Methinks this one is more like it if I were to buy one....





The other ones they offer here are pretty funny as well:

No pockets.  What's the use for that?

I am looking at getting this apron, does anyone here have one and what are your thoughts about it.
Not sure I need pockets just the dust off me comfortably

Bob, I was in a shop recently where someone was wearing that apron and it is what got me thinking about my next apron.

I do wish it had more pencil slots and the large straps are elastic (think suspenders) and not regular straps.

I don't like the elastic but I suppose that if the straps wear out before the apron I could replace them easily enough.  

I can also sew my own additional slots.



BTW... what's up with the sig line?  Is that me?

So I have to ask why more pencil spots?  I carry one in my pocket and have them at all the machines and benches.  I tend to scatter tape measures too but I have one I like more than all the rest and it stays with me.

Thats what I have had for the past 6-7 years. 

Its amazing. Mine is covered in glue though.  Winkgrin

I really like the side pockets, instead of the front pouches like so many have. I always hated when you lean over a tool, and getting poked by a wrench or whatever was in the pocket. That is a non issue with them on the side. Plus the pockets dont fill up with chips and dust on your side.

Its worn amazingly well.....figuring I have worn it more than 10,000 hours. Other than the glue, I bet noone would think its been worn that long. 

PS, the glue does peel off with some effort. Ive peeled areas off, just takes time.

Thanks for the feed back I was looking for someone that has used one.  I like side pockets myself it keeps me from getting poked by stuff when I pick things up in addition to leaning over stuff.  I wear the Duluth carpenter pants for the same reason

I tend to carry too many writing utensils with me.

I think this is the list:

Medium sharpie, fine point sharpie, carpenter's pencil, white pencil, mechanical pencil, and a small 6" flexible ruler.
Sometimes a ball point pen joins the crowd.

I hated that also and that's why my go-to aprons have swinging top pockets...It can ruin your day when a high-dollar micrometer or other expensive tool falls out and hits a concrete floor., A plus is...you wont get jabbed as easily.... Big Grin
