The first contact anyone in it has with any kind of vehicle, gene etc is going to destroy it. Even if you wear covvies over it then it's going to end up ruined since I assume it's not designed to be worn while crawling around on a Warrior/43.
One interesting question is, since we're going into shoes and not boots, what are the H&S issues with climbing up the side of an armoured vehicle while we're wearing them?
Or, of course, we could have the average regiment going to work in about fourteen different combinations of uniform and footwear dependant on how 'dirty' their job is and how likely they are to fall off something while they're there.

if everybody accepted PCS as it is supposed to be worn and got on with it then we wouldn't even be having this conversation.
the fact that to some RSM's - looking 'smart' and wearing PCS incorrectly is more important than feeling good and wearing it correctly, this is our downfall.
those who are defying the CGS now for the sake of stable belts and looking smart are the ones who will drive us into barrack dress.
the bullshit dinosaurs are far from extinct, and they thrive on stable belts.

The one time I've seen PCS tucked in it really did look like the chap was wearing his shirt tucked into his underpants and that is not a smart look!A DEAD STATESMAN
I could not dig: I dared not rob:
Therefore I lied to please the mob.
Now all my lies are proved untrue
And I must face the men I slew.
What tale shall serve me here among
Mine angry and defrauded young?

exactly - the term 'smart' is what those who prefer to wear PCS tucked-in refer to it as - as they refer to us who wear PCS un-tucked as 'scruffy'.
agreed though BA - the jacket is too thick to be tucked in - aswell as all those velcro strips which sit perfectly when worn un-tucked but insist on riding above your waistline and pushing the front of the jacket out at right angles when you wear it tucked-in - worse on skinny blokes i might add.
how in Gods name are they allowed defy the CGS? i'm sure they do it just to keep this thread going. we could have wrapped this thread up in 4 pages if they just did what they were told FFS.
