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. After most mess functions my dress shirt is on the way out, and it's rare that it lasts more than two. I am now struggling to find dress shirts with the following characteristics:

    Normal collar (not that wing rubbish)
    Black studs (exposed)
    No frill / pleating

    Anyone know a good supplier? My last mess do involved me cobbling together bits and bobs from various shirts!
     
  2. Go to an RN/RM/RAF kit store. Golfball shirt for £14, fused front so you never have to starch it. You need to make the holes for shirtstuds yourself though.
     
  3. Marks and Sparks usually have a good choice of rugby/high jinks drinking shirts that'll pass for teh real thing
     
  4. You could always pinch one - that's cheap!
     




  5. Sounds to me you are the frill type......you can get them most places. :arrow:
     
  6. Born and Co. Naval Tailors in Pompy - do these shirts off the shelf if i remember correctly.

    I am locking this thread for two reasons:

    1. There is already a 'Dapper Clothing' thread for this stuff.

    2. We are Officers. We do not have 'cheap' clothes. We may have inexpensive ones.
