When doing wood working or grinding or something like that? One time I woke up the day after doing some grinding and it felt like something was biting me, ended up being a tiny sliver of metal. lol I also tend to ruin all my shorts even though I try hard not to get them dirty, but they tend to get dirty no matter how hard I try not to.

All my clothes, which would include aprons if I had any, fall into 3 categories: Normal, old and rags. I wear the old clothes any time working with dirty stuff. Eventually the old clothes get permanently stained, worn or otherwise damaged to earn their place in the rag bin.

I have a heavy vinyl apron that I use for grinding. Started using it years ago when sharpening mower blades and the sparks were burning holes in my shirts and pants.

I have a nice denim apron I got a few years ago from where I used to work. I wear it on occasion, but I tend to forget I have it.

I've been trucking for over 20 years and sometimes get filthy on the job. I wear black pocket T-shirts at work that I order from www.allamericanclothing.com and they hide all the grease and filth I get into. I do a lot of drop and hooks, hooking up hoses and working in a dirty environment.
