Stephan Haroutunian, 95 Moore Park Rd, SW6. Get them anywhere else and they will/should be burnt.
Absolutely right but be aware FAD may overtake events with Gunner officers being forced down the issue shirt line.

BTW, there is a marvellous pub next door to Stephans - The Pickled Pelican...

Surely, that would be the sign of a failing regiment.

There's no 'may' about it CC...FAD shirts only - the long sleeved version.
The RA might cave in but I will only accept it when I see the Rifles dress regs change...and good luck with that, FAD team!

I really hate having to be the one to break it you boss, but the Rifles Dress Guide was updated (again!) last month, no doubt with FAD in mind. Lo and Behold:
Officers’ No 2 Dress (Applies also to FAD)
Forage Cap as per No1 Dress.
Rank: Black 5/8th metal Crown/Bath Star (less red infill/ backing).
Cross Belt as directed.
Whistle cord to be worn overlapping the Cross Belt.
4x black ball button down the front, remainder flat, all with raised RIFLES cap badge image,

Shirt & Tie in No 2 Dress, as per ECAB direction, once FAD is issued, the FAD issue shirt and tie are to be worn in this form of dress.

Black Leather Glove, unlined with single/ pop button.
Footwear: George Boots with Cross Belt/ Medals.
Black Brogues/ Shoes Highland without Cross Belt/ Medals.
pdf available here: Dress & Uniform - British Army Website see page 29.

I get the impression that FAD isn't as well recieved as most people might think- I agree with the sentiment- the new kit looks absolutely gash.

Oh, Lordy!
Thanks for the update RP.
*sigh*

Edited to add: Having just taken a sobering trip through the PDF that RP indicated, I did notice that there is still one concession to the old way:
"FAD: As per ECAB direction, regimental & corps shirts & ties may be worn in No 13/14 Barrack Dress."
So no immediate need for Viking funerals just yet...

Reviving this thread as I am based overseas and, as now a General Staff officer, I require Coles Pattern shirts in SD. The ones I have from Stephan's which I bought years ago are now rather past their best. Anyway they are quite a heavy soft cotton and I would prefer something lighter weight and crisper. Anyone got any suggestions? Most online military tailors don't seem to stock them anymore.

Unless you have a particularly retentive boss you should be able to wear just about anything you wish having reached the General Staff, British eccentricity is the way ahead. Sorry I can't actually be of any help re tailors who might be able to satisfy your requirements.

Best of luck in your search for sartorial/regimental satisfaction and comfort.

Well I was with Gen Carter last month and just about managed for a couple of days but need to purchase a couple. Goldings have them, but they are about £60 a pop and I feel that is a bit steep.

Kashkets at RMAS does them for £45 a go. Plus you get constantly reassured that they are 'guards quality sir' every time you go in.
