  • uniform question

    Good morning/evening avid readers,

    I have long been a lurker here, and found the site very useful, as I am due to start at Shields on the 5th Sep.

    My question to you is; what shoes will I need whilst on the bridge in my sea phases?, should they just be plain black leather shoes? or is a safety shoe a requirement?

    Thank you for any help!

      On the bridge a plain black shoe will be fine.

        Depends what company.

        On the borg, uniform is only worn during pilotage and thus plain black shoes, when deep sea, flip-flops / sandals will be fine...BUT NOT WITH SOCKS else the fashion police WILL be flown out and you WILL be shot at dawn

          Lesser offences include but not exclusive to; wearing white socks with the aforementioned black shoes and wearing those godawful shorts, white, tropical issued by CMT.

              I've been wearing mine in the tropical south for 2 days... they give just the right amount of circulation

                  ermmm what? Uniform shorts......I'll just pop down the alleyway and ask the old man......I dont do uniform (at all) I bring 1 pr black trousers, 1 short sleeve shirt with epaulettes and black shoes, in case any grown ups come for dinner, I tend to live in.....lemme see.....shorts (black cargo or blue M&S) and rugby top / tee-shirt...or boiler suit.....

                  I have a Full Deep Sea Uniform....I have worn it to both my weddings and a funeral and 2 naming ceremonies, and thats it, lives in Narnia and comes out for an airing every 5-7 years or so.

                  Capt has white shorts but on pilotage he tends not wear grown up trousers (long black) and uniform shirt.......
