Mess Dress???

Discussion in 'REME' started by websters, Sep 5, 2006.

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. Any old and bold out there no the correct dress code for mess dress (for REME), like which style of boots george/chelsea patent or not etc... And Shirts and stuff as a lot of the so called experts seem to contradict each other??

    Thanks for any help, oh and it's not a wah...just don't wanna look to stupid like normal?
  2. George boots, no patent, spurs for Majors and over. Dress shirt, foldown collars with golf ball pattern frontage. Watch chain if desired.
  3. Thanx very much!
  4. Dress regs state george boots or mess wellies if I remember correctly.

    Do it right, no dreadful civvy chelsea boots or whatever. RSM's were very lax on this and I saw some awful attempts at Mess Dress when I was in, but you can only be responsible for yourself!

    Get a good quality all cotton, marcella bibed shirt with a turndown collar.
  5. Wear your army issue shoes and any old white shirt, its only a pissup siut. I got away with it for 12 years.
  6. Thanks again
  7. Get a clip on bow tie.
  8. Do not get a clip on bowtie.
  9. Get a proper bow-tie, they are quite easy to do once you get the hang of it.
  10. Don't forget the Bart Simpson socks and always tuck your mobile in your waistcoat pocket!!!!!
