    Perhaps it is my age but I found myself agreeing with you - Love the Hush Puppies, and some of the Clarke's "Airwears" are brilliant.

    I think it's pretty universal; uniform standards drop as the cadetship progresses!

    Nah it's still pretty lax. Tbh there are plenty things that I would put higher up the list of stuff needing improved before I got to their uniform policy.

    Aye, I spent my entire cadetship at Glasgow in a mixture of George and Tesco Trousers!! (That is, when I wore uniform. It is quite amusing to watch progression in Glasgow, cause all 1st Phase Cadets will be dressed to the T, then 2nd Phase cadets are a bit more relaxed, then the 3rd phase Engineers just stop wearing uniform full stop!! There was a bit of a change in senior staff just after I left though, so may well have changed now.)

    Nik,

    Absolutely go for ASDA or similar, machine wash trousers, permanent crease, bomb proof cheapies.

    Shoes - go for something comfortable, possibly an "airwear" sole for comfort. Personally I would spend more on the shoes than the trousers.

    As you are an engineer I would go for velcros or slip ons - those shoe laces can be so pesky to tie!

    started a topic Troos

    Troos

    Alreet.

    So got an email from CMT telling me the uniform i will be supplied with and only need to provide black shoes and black trousers. Does it matter what kind of troos and shoes i go for? Or do they have to specifically come from CMT's clothing website?

    Was just going to ASDA George those bad boys like.
Working...
