Topic tags/keywords: humor shop apparel question

Hey LJ’s,

Thanks for all the great responses to Part I! Got me thinking and I mentioned I asked my wife to make ne a knee length shop apron. The only material heavy enough was upholstery fabric. Yeah right! LOL! And that striped pillow fabric. I said I’ll either get lost sitting in a chair or the cats will sleep on me. :<)

My birthday was earlier this month and now, because she always goes overboard ( although not too far this time,)
I am now able to prance around my shop with not one but TWO aprons, which I model here.

I’m opting to try this one out as it has a lot of pockets and appears well made!

Looks like I’m going to have to wear better clothes out in the shop? LOL!

What are your thoughts?

I saw a shop tip the other day on the apron tie. It used a magnet catch instead of tying a knot in the back. That might be something you try.

Nice one. Pardon me. Nice two I mean. :-D
My bday was also recently (6th) but I don’t remember any cool shop stuff gotten from anyone.
Maybe because the bday of our first child can be at any time now… Well, that’s some present. :-D

Looking pretty sharp there doc. I like the look of them both. My only problem with pockets is filling them with sawdust.

Now you need to keep some shop towels around. It’s not acceptable to wipe gluey fingers all over a nice, new apron.

Good old t-shirt and jeans for me.

Once I start messing around with my new lathe, I’m sure I’ll feel the need for an actual apron.

Tyvekboy,

It has all sorts of snazzy catches! Maybe too technical for me. LOL!

Old shirt, blue jeans, comfy tennis shoes, and my glasses. Somedays, I even put on the side shields..

Used to wear the tool belt, but the pouches would just fill up with shavings/sawdust.

If I’m working outside, I’ll wear a “Boonie hat”. Just won’t do to have the top of my almost bald head sunburnt, now would it?

Bandit,

I love outside but after being outside I glow in the dark. All my “old shirts” have worn out.
