I remember that "Look" BPT, though the desert boots, for the younger members, were 'Bata' chukka boots, usually purchased in places like Aden for the equivalent of ten shillings (going back a bit now)!

Could usually spot squaddies recently returned from the Far East in those days by their shiny mohair suits made to measure in Hong Kong or Singapore for about five quid. They were great until it rained then the sleeves either shrunk or fell off! Sh*t that was forty years ago! Sorry.

Your post unfortunately prompted me to examine my attire. Oh! Oh! jeans, chukka boots, sweat shirt and my Barbour jacket hanging close to hand, G10 moustache grey around the edges. Timeless classic or anachronism? Damned if I'm going to change now!

No tache, and substitute rugby shirt for t-shirt, but otherwise, yes! Why, you wanna make something of it? :wink:

Anyone remember 'Fives' in Aldershot? Once you'd got used to the gloom and dodged a few flying ashtrays it was a sea of maroon sweatshirts and crew cuts above, and brutus jeans and dessies (with luminous laces) below.

I understand that at Sandhurst it used be be compulsary for the potential ruperts to wear a suit when going out on the p*ss. This apparantly included a hat (Trilby, deer-stalker, whatever.) The young lads didn't of course like wearing such hats as it made tham look like prats so they were abandoned in a near by hedge on leaving the base and when they returned they would have to take pot luck with whatever items of headgear were left. Is this true or b*llocks? Anyone know?

I know a couple of fellas who still iron creases into their jeans.

Let's see, squaddy fashion is beyond me, but Jock fashion mostly seemed to consist of:
1 x button-up shirt, usually white base with stripes, but...wait, we had a discussion about this once...the stripes are more "masculine" than what the ruperts wear. No pink, ever! Dragon motifs still popular, even though civvy street abandoned those at the turn of the century.
1 x black, creased trousers or blue jeans, whichever looks sleazier
and lots of hairgel.

Shoes I can't remember, but only teenage juniors would think that slags would be impressed by Nikes combined with this outfit. Seniors either have more taste, or their wives do.
Overall, pretty normal stuff really, except for those damn dragons...

And yes, I've heard that RMAS story too; which means it was probably invented by some C/Sgt...

In Catterick it's all Chav fashion. There's even a shop selling the stuff which has opening hours to fit in with the ITC training program. Plus the bargains at Catterick market on Sundays.

lol... back in the day it was a chequered shirt... usually ysl, Ralph Lauren or dare I say lacoste, jeans and black shoes/boots... CATS or Rockports of course.

Take the pi55 all you like but your outfit costs about a week and a half wages lol.

Shirt £50 - £70
Jeans £60 - £90
Boots £90 - £175
