Hmmmm.... I would think that if one worked at the Craft, the wear and tear on his apron would be apparent. To me, my pristine apron would say that I had not labored but had been a bystander when work should have been actively pursued.
But, when it really boils down to the bare facts, isn't the apron a part of the external?
Just my 2 bits worth. I would wear mine but, as a recently raised Master Mason, I'm not sure how it would be received. Still debating with myself over that.
I got mine during my EA. That's the last time I wore it. I've thought about getting it framed. One of our older brothers always offers to fill out the bib once you are raised because he can write in caligraphy. Its very beautiful.
I am saving my plain white lamb skin for the coffin. I did purchase a MM lamb skin apron with my name and lodge number on it from craftsmansapron.com. It hasn't arrived yet but I look forward to wearing it.
