      Only time I was out of uniform was when I went ashore, so investing in comfy shirts etc was worth it.

              For the ones who think itailor.com is a bit dear... :P and to get this thread to a point, does anyone know a website to get some nice pilot shirts from for an acceptable price?

                  hese are without doubt the best uniform shirts Ive ever had. They do deliver to the UK, but you have to pay tax.

                  But these will last for ever

                    Antijanner,

                    Have you ordered from Glendinnings for delivery to the UK? I picked up a few shirts in Sydney but only got the eyelet-hole ones, regretting now not getting some shirts with epaulettes for college. If it's cheap-ish I might order.

                    Love my Glendinnings shirts!

                      Yes I have - you have to pay tax on them when they get delivered you are sent a letter by the couriers. Wish I'd got some with shoulder flaps now. The ones I have I used to wear every day (I've 4) for 8 -10 months a year and they still look like new. Excellent shirts
                      Cheers and ta

                        Hi all,

                        What are Miller Rayner's kit like? My company is going to be ordering from them.

                          I got Miller Rayner shirts and they wash and iron great but look like there my Dads on me, collar fits perfect though.

                            Miller Rayner shirts - a bit baggy at the back for me but for others such as Coldo (who hasn't posted for ages) a great fit

                            I got a fresh supply of white pilot shirts on the cruise ship I was on and the tailor took them in at the back so I got a great fit. Much better quality than the Miller Rayner ones. I previously ordered some slim fit pilot shirts from an aviation clothing supplier but wasn't that impressed with the fit either, http://www.armstrongaviationclothing.com/

                            and before ETWhat? starts asking why I need slim fit shirts, slim fit seems to be a relative term when it comes to pilot shirts.

                              My joining instructions say nothing about pilot shirts or epaulets(sp?)etc just "white shirt/blouse". I don't think a blouse would suit me so does this mean just a plain white shirt would do?

                                I'm sure you'd look lovely in a blouse!

                                Anywho, if your just starting at college then you don't need them. You won't have any rank slides, and it is a bit daft to wear them in college anyways. You'll get them when you join a ship and even then you may not wear them. I only ever wore mine once or twice...
