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:

    Spotty ties and hankies
    anything from Farlows or dear Johnny Boden except this for Fiona: [​IMG] also rule out that daft shop on the square in Cirencester and Mole Valley Farmers??

    ( also: any "civvies" bought from Goldings with uniform allowance )

  6. Jeans and dessies agnostic actually.

    Mater thinks my black M+S crew neck is a bit bourgois, the OC thinks I'm an existentialiste

    I suspect you would enjoy the Mess I currently live in, which often resembles a 'Big Issue' sellers' convention, so much of the Devil's cloth is worn.

    If all the makes you listed were banned, what would a gentleman wear?

    Indeed, though there are a number of Army & RN officers here as well. The lack of standards is disappointing, though I suppose people might take a little more trouble if the Mess was maintained properly so that it was a decent place to live.
  11. Once in the NATO Mess in Sennelager a group of young officers from a certain corps (no names etc but one of the supposedly better corps) were in the bar dressed in a fashion that even charvers would find iffy. Their CO appeared towards the end of the evening and a certain crusty wandered up to him and asked him if it was true that Oxfam had been appointed Corps tailor. Laugh I nearly spilt me pint.
