"No mason is permitted to enter a Lodge or join in its labors unless he is properly clothed."

A Mason is said to be properly clothed when he wears white gloves, a Masonic apron, and the jewel of his Masonic rank. The gloves are now often, but improperly, dispensed with, except on public occasions.
