Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. i am planning on going to the BARB test in trousers and shoes anyway but is the BARB a full shirt and tie job?
  2. Having done a BARB , when i previously applied.

    Nope , just normal clothes... jeans etc... informal

    Hope this answers your query

    Syn :)
  3. Nar mate. I went in jeans and jacket, just aslong as you look smart. Everything else i would imagine shirt and tie job, like ADSC and interviews etc.
  4. I wouldn't worry about shirt and tie. Just go smart/casual. I went in jeans and shirt and was told even that was a bit too smart.
    Obviousy don't turn up in trackys just be clean and have a good attitude and you'll be fine.
  5. Remember every time you go to the office you are applying for a job.

    Smart casual is good
  6. well every time i have been to the office so far i have done the shoes, trousers and a polo-shirt or t-shirt
  7. Every single time I have been in the presence of a member of HM Forces while applying for this job, apart from the time on selection in trackie bottoms, I have had black shoes, black trousers, shirt and tie.

    Impressions count, make the most of them.
  8. Im went in my boots uniform cause it was streight after work, i;l have to got for my basic skills in that too
