Torquay Walt!

#1
Just been out on the lash this weekend with some muckers from CTCRM, was walking to the train station this afternoon when I couldn't help but notice a man wearing 95 Trousers, Norgie zipped and folded at the neck and, I wish I'd imagined this, a 7.62 Link belt as a belt! I tried to get a phot but he was getting suspicious while I was pretending to be on the phone, while failing completely to contain my laughter! So does anyone on here know of him?! Seen him?!

Not really a walt, more of just being an utter cunt with a bizarre fashion sense.

Do you consider anyone who wears anything even remotely 'military' to be a walt?

There is loads of them mate all over the place. It really winds me up civvies wearing combats. I feel like saying "do i wear your uniform in my spare time" , no, "then why the **** are you wearing mine"

Quite handy though, I still have a pair of the old issue dpm trousers and have used them for courier work (A-Z fits nicely in the pocket) and gardening. Saying that i didnt bother with the norgie and link belt tho - bit too sad even for me

Sounds more like a Care in the Community case than a walt mate!

He wasn't wearing black boots as well was he?

Shut up. Surplus has been worn for years in most countries around the world. You would get laughed at - or slapped - for being dull and gobby.

The volume of sad tw@ts that dress up in mil uniforms for stag do's is quite high. Places like Torquay attract the sort of kn0bbers that wear this clobber and think it is a hoofing place to go out on the lash - so are you surprised?????

Taking it a wee bit too seriously I feel. It's not as if he was wearing a full uniform with TRFs and talking about being in the sandpit.
I still wear my old DPMs when I got to martial arts classes because they have room are solid and comfy. No norge or link belt but that's because I do have some sense.

The thread title confused me somewhat. Why would anyone walt as a seaside resort?

Personally, I'd pretend to be Skegness but I doubt I could carry it off with my thighs.

I do rather well out of flogging the MOD's cast-offs to them what go to fancy dress parties - and a lot of wimmin I might add.

The only bit of surplus that I sell that doesn't just go to party-people is the S95 jackets and trousers, which I sell a lot of to hunters, because it's cheap and it works.

Once in a blue moon, I mean proper rarely, will I get some desperately sad tube into my store to buy the gear as a fashion accessory, which is a relief.

The boots, secondhand as they are go like hot-cakes - mostly to cadets and the skint.

Dressing in surplus DPM and suchlike was never a fashion for civilians in Northern Ireland in the 1970'/80s!!!!!!
I wonder why?
Yes it was.
Yup.
