    Someone quick, tell me the correct way of using trouser twists and blousing trousers voer boots, I have recieved no info on this and it's too late to find out now as I have firsdt parade in say 2.5 hours! Help....!
  2. Trousers on, boots on, hike trousers up above boot, apply trouser twist around boot drop trouser leg over boot, tuck trouser leg under trouser twist.
    For that extra special straight effect, put 5-6" chain of suitable size inside tucked trouser leg to act as a weight.
  3. Won't that add a festive jingle jangle touch to your drill?

    Life saver!
  5. I suppose so if you don't muffle it somehow. Can't really comment further, it was something I heard from a bootneck who's turnout was always gleaming. Never bothered me enough to try it, but 307 seems to want to make an impression!
  6. unlace boots , tuck all spare trouser in , lace boots tightly ,put one twister round each wrist like a friendship bracelet. ta-daaaaaaa.easy.
  7. **** em off CS 95 has ties in to remove the need for bullshit twisters that wear out your combats
  8. 307, not wanting to sound like a duffer but are you in the army or cadets? If yes then you must have been shown on day one week one. Unless of course you're in the RAF. No point wearing twisters with shiny plastic shoes and grey Farras.

    Surely the question is whether to put the twister around your leg, just above the top of the boot or half way down the boot? :lol:

  10. Eventually I objected to having to buy the **** things and stuck with the ties.

    You really should have been beaten harder at your prep school old boy... I mean, confusing Greek with Latin, really! :wink:

    Wouldn't have happened in my day, baaaaaah! :lol:

    307, you've had some good advice and some quite mischevious advice - let that be your first lesson in the army; you will be stitched up massively in your first days!

    Welcome to the great world of the military, I hope that it turns out to be all that you hoped.
