Sleeves Rolled Up

Discussion in 'Military Clothing & Boots' started by BigHorse, May 13, 2013.

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. Now that CGS has directed a change in Dress Regs to allow rolled up sleeves, it is only a matter of time before tucked in shirts/jackets will follow.

    Certain units have already pre-empted the tucked in aspect with stable belts returning to be the norm.
  2. Can you provide the referenced authority for this change of policy?


  3. .
    Cue fifteen thousand pages of "this is shit" replies.

    This is shit.

  4. I'm so glad CGS and so many others have so much spare time that they can occupy with this pressing matter. Perhaps they could look into the whole creases/no creases thing while they're at it.

  8. Yes!

    Please someone cut and paste! I'm also on ops and this will make my tour!
  9. What about sideys?
  10. For those getting excited this isn't a change in policy. This is direction to change the policy - until that is changed PCS remains down and out.
  11. You may roll those up regardless of season.
    Or tuck them in.
    Or iron creases into them.
    Your choice.

    1. Issue. This ACIN draws attention to the main themes and headline issues that were raised to CGS and ECAB (on 2 May 13) by the CGS Briefing Team over the collection period Dec 12 – Apr 13.

    2. CGS direction. CGS directed immediate staff action should be focused on the following areas:


    e. Uniform. Reinforcing the message that the backload of CS95 is underway and amend the dress regulations regarding PCS, allowing for sleeves to be rolled up in the summer. Action: FDT/AG.
  13. Please note it says "focused on"

    This means they will discuss it not, roll your sleeves up you lovely boys

    So we will have to wait a little longer till we turn a functional uniform into a scruffy archaic twattish item of clothing
