Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    I'm hoping it will be cheaper (as I posted before), but let's say that it'll cost 20 quid by the time it arrives on your doorstep. Bear in mind that BCO has to be suitably rewarded for running up and down to the post office!

    The design would be this with the pink and black stripes the other way round as in the blow up:



    We can assume that it will be good quality woven silk with a light texture - I'm confident after some discussions with two different companies. It may even have an ARRSE label in the back. I hear gasps of sheer delight.

    Place your votes!
  2. My 'Yes' is in.
  3. Broad stripes...utterly vile and instantly recognisable. :D
  4. Looks like a liquorice allsort..... 8O

    Is that a problem? Nothing wrong liquorice allsorts.
  6. Lovely tie, I would cheerfully re-mortgage my house, pimp my wife and sell my children for medical experiments (especially the boy) in order to afford one of these.

    Perhaps the Special (no, not different, special) Recce Regt might adopt this design for its tie?? :lol:
  7. Yes please. Design as shown.

    Textured by not too much - I've said 'classic' to the manufacturers. Here is a suggested texture / stripe which I like. Obviously this is a real close up. The stripes are only narrow, as ours would be:


    Comments on texture welcome. As I say, I've said lightly textured.

    The full size photo may help:

    Very nice. Actually I would buy both a narrow-ish and a wide stripe version (country), were both available.

    Looking at the votes I think this is probably an option. Exactly the same colours (except the blue background obviously)? All the same width?
  13. I will buy both types.
  14. I will also have both designs. Can't wait for the matching dressing-gown....

    I would buy both as well.
