  • suit / blazer advice

    hi guys due to start with clyde in a few weeks n they advised black suit or blazer to be worn for college. problem im having is they say you have to sew on badge to chest pocket. none my 3 suits i own actually have a real pocket n most blazers iv looked at buying have it either ? what did everyone do. my suits have the small slit like a pocket but no actuall pocket ! advice ?

    Sew it on though the slit pocket very very carefully...
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

      Unless your suits are cheap 'n' cheerful, FFS don't ruin them with a Clyde Marine badge!

        Get someone who can sow to stitch it on, as you dont want to end up into the lining, so a curved needle is best, the 'sow it to the pocket' is more aobut the location otherwise people would have it anywhere. use as little thread as is needed its not under much load and that way you can take it off without having ruined a jacket that might be good for interviews/ funerals etc
        you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

            yeh the suits just a cheap cheerful black suit. my gran will stitch it on its just because technically its not a pocket but will it be ok just in the location ?

              Mine is the same...there's a pocket, but no outline. I'm sure it's fine though.

                  Seeing as I was planning on wearing a NATO jumper for most classes, do you need a second patch for that?

                    no no no no no, no
                    uniform is one of these good things to follow the rules exactly on.

                      That's fine and all, but when I was at the Warsash open day I only saw one cadet in a suit/blazer amid a myriad of cadets. Not to mention that I was told a NATO jumper would be suitable attire for college wear at Glasgow. Glasgow in winter doesn't seem like the best time to be wearing a suit...

                        I agree. I've spoken to Clyde and they are happy with a NATO jumper as a suitable uniform.

                          so your not getting a suit jacket or blazer at all ? and are you using the CMT badge then at all ?

                            I was planning on wearing the blazer for the first few days/first week then switching to NATO pullover.

                              If you're with Clyde, they'll want you to wear the blazer to the US embassy as well. Apart from that, I never wore it, just wore pilot shirt, and the pullover if it's cold.
