shoes, I have a pair of slip on shoes that are seamless on the tops and
I slip them on as i leave the house and slip them off just before I come
Apron, I have one similar to the one you posted but did not pay near as
much, alas it is no longer listed in on the site. I wear it all the
time (in the shop!), protects from flying objects, slips of the blade
and keeps the dust off the front of my clothes.
It is hard to look like a craftsman in a cloud of dust, good Lone
Ranger, bad woodworker.

I recently pulled out an apron that I used to use when repairing
bicycles. It worked pretty well for woodworking but it had no chest
pockets. LOML dragged me to an outlet mall a couple of weeks ago.
The only saving grace was that it had a Black and Decker outlet. I
bought this apron: http://www.bucketboss.com/product_detail.html?skuidQ
I no longer have to look for a pencil or tape measure.
I believe that ALL pockets, without flaps, will fill with sawdust. Some
more that others but it doesn't take long to empty them AND put away all
the other little stuff that accumulates in them also. :-)

If you have a lathe, even the pockets *with* flaps soon fill with shavings.
So I just wear my "breasts" with pride and don't worry about it. Once
they're full, they stay full, and require no further maintenance. :)

yep, the lathe is a pocket filler for sure! Some day i will engineer a
method of collecting the majority of the lathe shavings without it also
removing my clothing and then I will be able to retire. ;-)
Knapp work shoes have a patented cushion sole that is excellent if your on
unpadded concrete all day long. Carhardt carpenters pants and a leather
apron when turning or routing.
Also have a cronie hanging around after hours thats an office boy by day and
he where his business casual Levi's Dockers that aren't presentable for him
on the job anymore. They seem surprisingly durable and easily kept clean as
well although I wouldn't run out to buy $40 pants to make sawdust in.
Try a nylon fishing shirt. These shirts usually have vented panels in
back, and multiple pockets for storing stuff. I can't imagine putting
an apron or coat over top of my clothes (too hot). Cabela's has a
large selection of fishing shirts.
Propet shoes are ugly but comfy and cheap, and come in all sizes.
