A brown to match the straps/brass would be cool

I've had a few requests for Olive Drab canvas and Brown stitching, I'm going to put up an option for Black canvas with Brown stitching and Olive Drab with Brown stitching. Possibly a few other combinations.

A big no-no to wear a shop coat, apron or gloves on a lathe, so you have it right so far! ;)
aprons are perfectly fine and TOTALLY SAFE on a lathe  ;) gloves can certainly be a problem as well as long sleeves

I witnessed a guy get dragged into the lathe because his shop coat got caught in the lead screw... An apron is no different but suit yourself bud! ;)

I've always worn an apron while machining, but there are certain types I would never wear, like one that ties in the front.

The danger is just as much present with your T-shirt, if not more so, the apron is somewhat stiff and adjusted to stay close to your body, the T-shirt is not..

yep ;) aprons are safer than just wearing clothes as they wrap snugly around your body
if you get your apron caught in a lead screw you earned it ;D

Learned that lesson the other day, was wearing gloves on the drill press, and reached in to clean the bit off like I do with my bare fingers all the time. BAM it grabbed and ripped the glove right off my hand, I am incredibly lucky it ripped the glove off so fast and I was just left with a very sore finger, I easily could have lost a finger/hand, especially if it were a high power/high rpm lathe.

gloves running a lathe,not recommended at all
the old guy i learned machine and fab from had to power reverse a guy outa the lathe :'( his arm was broke in 16 places totally wrapped up to his shoulder,dude was never the same needless to say
i have run a lathe so big it was like a record player with an 8 foot diameter turning table and controlled it from a rickety scaffold right above the turning mass of hold down clamps and work piece
being a manual machinist on large machines turning large odd-shaped parts is no joke one false move and you can straight get eaten alive
