or something similar to Lt weights.

We have heard the same at our unit, it was briefed as "CAMP dress". It will take the form of "Crab" shoe's, lightweight trousers and shirts/jersey heavy wool (new design coming soon) can't f**king wait!

I wish they brought back denims and jumpers they look smarter. Barrack dress is awesome I would be able to wear shoes to work whilst walking my dog holding my wifes hand cool.

Those crappy Pork Pie hats will be back in next! You know, the ones which sit at a w*anky angle!

It's all to do with CS95 and the psycology. There has been a study of some description carried out and when we get used to wearing CS95 constantly we don't feel very war-ry when we roll out the gate on ops.

Funny thing is my working CS95 is green and its usually a sandy colour when we roll out the gate same as everyone else!

Well its RMP and we got told, they wear it at RHQ so we will wear it in the company location as well.

But its the lightweights that are truely gay, with no twisters and shoes. Great for working pay weekend nights in or just generally looking like a mickey mouse policing agency

There was nothing wrong with old style No8 dress - if that came back I would have no problem....plastic trousers, brown shirt and shoes though (old barrack dress)...we'd be like the crabs only with a more w@nk uniform.

I'd be glad of the return to barracks dress. I sit in an office all day but still have to clean my boots - well, supposed to. If we go to barracks dress, i'll treat myself to some nice patent ones that i can wipe over with a dish cloth.

Great idea. can't wait.

And then wear the same pair of plastic trousers all week until you can get them dry cleaned. Personally I'd rather clean a pair of boots every day.
