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. Can anyone recomend a good tailors to get a set of mess dress from who, wont let me down at the last minute and wont make me give up my life savings.
    pretty urgent as the tailors (uniformal) have just gone bust.

    thanks :cry:
  2. Costellos in Ilford do a good job.
  3. Have they made many dresses for you?
  4. Just sign off then you won't have to worry about the costs of mess dress :twisted:
  5. Just got a new one from messdress.com, from order to delivery in 25 days

    sorry just realised they dont do female for signals
  6. I'm normally an observer, rather than a writer, but I am confused.

    Screw convention - Christian Dior :wink:
  8. Certainly that approach seems to be de rigeur in the RAF..... :roll:
  9. Try Ann Summers, they don't do Mess dress but you will have fun at the next function, I mean the lads will.
  10. Steady on - Manners Maketh Man! Old man Harper will roll over!
  11. I can also recommend Costellos in Ilford. They did a good job on my mess dress and the last time I was there, Ronnie O'Sullivan popped in to collect some new waistcoats. I’m pretty sure they do female mess dress as well.

    Dropped name collected on way out…
  12. Try messdress.com


    Antoine the owner/operatior is brilliant, and allows 0% payments over 3 months (IIRC)

    I don't know why RSigs Female dress isn't listed but he does others Corps female mess dress, and he makes them all up himself, so I can't see him not doing it.

    If out of UK, he will give VAT Free too.

    Can't sing his praises enough. ANd I always push people in his direction (on and offline).

    He will give you a full set of dress with NO bother. And he is close to Blandford for any little changes you need over the years.

    Did I mention he is great? And he views it as a hobby and interst not just a way to make money.
  13. I'm sure someone would be happy to help you out.
