Gotta love the Daily Fail for their headlines!

But they're modernizing the uniform...while keeping stable belts for a service that has never had horses. :unsure:

Coincidentally, I was just chatting with an RAF colleague this morning about this very topic.

RAF has pushed out an email saying it was rejected outright.

The alternative being bantered about now should look something more along the lines of...

I imagine they would look just spiffy on a body that has been exposed to calories and gravity for a little longer.

Change for the sake of change is ridicolous. Costly expenses for what?

They're not wrong. There is a space for "traditional" uniforms on parade (the No.1 as it says) but for the day-to-day, why not replace 3B with something like a golf shirt and machine-washable slacks? It would be cheaper than DEU and much cheaper than CADPAT.

Why is 3B even a thing anymore anyways? I can't think of a business these days (like banks, offices, etc) where people wear short-sleeved button-down shirts anymore. Honestly, it reminds me of the A&W guy.
