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

  1. HI ALL
    just a quick question to clarify an argument just wondering what is clased as formal dress for a mess meeting ie what should be worn and what should not.
  2. Formal dress is when you wear a tie with your tracksuit bottoms and t shirt
  3. whatever your unit dictates, normally something f*ckin hideous. one place we had polo shirts this place its shirt an tie. Speak to your other mess members
  4. but dont forget to wear white sox!!!!
  5. If you have to ask in this forum - you shouldn't be eligible to attend
  6. A quick guide:

    Formal - Mess Kit/Black Tie/Ankle length dresses for ladies *.

    Lounge Suit - can be 2 or 3 piece *.

    Jacket & Tie - Jacket & Tie *.

    Smart Casual - Shirt with collar, trousers/chinos but no denim or cord jeans.

    Casual - tidy but no ripped denim.

    Scruff order - anything else.

    * No white socks (unless you're an ECM Operator!)

    Hope this helps.
