Pongos and combat jackets

#6
I rather think loose looks better than drawn up tbh. RN Foulies need to be worn drawn in because weather dependant, water can also come up as well as down, but on a combat jacket it looks smarter out.

We always used to draw them up back in the 80's. I got told off for it pretty much as soon as I rejoined! Fashions change I guess.

I think they look smarter drawn up and I wear mine like that in the field for the most part. Makes it a bit less prone to catching on things. The old style ones had a flap you could fasten under the crotch to stop them riding up although it seemed a bit unnecessary. Parachuting ones still have it I guess for obvious reasons.

I'm not a bootneck yet, still a phase 2 nod. Not sure where the pooch comes from, it's grown natural to call it one
Shhhh Nod. There's a good Nod. Now, behave like Nods have done since time began and go to the Turk's head, drink your standard two pints of Wifebeater, gob off at a local, bag off with an Exeter scutter and worry about other things than how working dress is worn.

Well fuck off back to your grot and start banging them out you necky cunt. Alternatively pop off down to the AACC grots and have a proper word with the trained ranks in there.

Report back once you're out of hunter troop and the emergency dental work has been completed

Computers and the internet in training FFS whats that about
