Best place to buy mess dress?

try the corps officers' shop at Deepcut may have second hand stuff that you can get tailor to fix for you.

£850 sounds about right...

Have to disagree! £850.00 sounds pricey, even for WO1/Officers Pattern, unless it includes collarless double cuffed shirt, braces, boots and spurs.

We had a RSM who thought it was a great idea to make the JNCO mess fork out for a mess dress.That was five years ago and I have only worn it three times,now our mess has gone back to suit.As I have a short time left in the army and would take a act of god for me to get to the Sgt mess I have a RA mess dress for sale if any one wants it, cheap at 150 pound,give me a shout if you want it

I thought they were going to bring in an allowance for Mess Dress now !!
I believe the official line is (or was) that they are looking at bringing in an allowance. This could be translated into "Not in your lifetime".

Shiny.

Or www.messdress.com who accommodated me greatly on quick delivery and were reasonably priced too.

Go and speak to your pay office, collect £455 in cash or cheque.
I got mine from Corps tailor, free shirt, half price boots, paid £144 of my own money and got my medals done locally for £60 :D
