    Re: Maersk uniform

    Received mine today, so excited about starting in September now! The shorts are.. erm... short, but everything else is a good fit. The waterproof jacket's pretty cool! Now I've got to get squares and protractors etc, anyone know roughly how much it's going to set me back for the stuff we need for September?

      Nah velcro strip is for our rank strips when we're on board, I think they just mean sewn or marked in the collar thats what I'm doing anyway

          I didn't get the light bloe overalls it says they are still to come, though I have a funky sea cadet jacket with the same idea haha usually if you leave the jacket sitting the velcro strip has been put upside down haha

              Light blue (uniform) BS's are only just coming back they where withdrawn last year for various reasons, so need to re-stock etc, but they'll turn up eventually

                    Re: Maersk uniform

                    Yep, I have had a few fitting problems.

                    The blazer arms came short, even with a tailor measuring me; I need an L not R
                    The Blue maersk overalls.. weird the short sleeve 92 fit perfect... the long sleeve 92 way too small.

                    So emailed Maersk and I've re ordered my blazer ( in the correct size) and also rang skanwear up about the overalls and ordered another short sleeve as they have no more long sleeve left in sizes above 92.
                    I'm to take the non fitting uniform with me to the induction day and hand it in.

                          Yer my long sleeved overalls r a bit short :S will probs just keep them though seeing as they're not too bad nd apparently Maersk r running low. Will we ever actually wear the shorts? they haven't given any white socks or shoes to go with them

                            Lets hope they don't
                            All the more reason to not "have" to wear them then.

                              Another question... those who have recived you uniform... what colour are the buttons on oyour blazer? Just I got mine( although I've reordered the correct size now) and the button were/are black... I was sure they were meant to be gold. If you look at all maersk past cadets they had gold. And just to sort of prove the point, in my blazer inner pocket I found a packet of spare buttons... they were gold. I'm slightly confused anad just want to know if my jacket was clearly a mistake?? I do like to look neat in the uniform, gold buttons are the cherry on the cake.... they make it stand out
