Picture of you in your HAC Patrol Blues for comparison?

I'm in all of these, treat yourself.

You'll notice that in all of them, I've managed to overcome great adversity and dress myself in clothes that actually fit.

I did not weigh him. Perhaps we should all estimate the weight loss of the fellow in the picture and the most pedantic of us can try to contact him for the definative figure.

Or, maybe you shouldn't make glib posts and then get chippy?

Maybe your parents were right?

He's going to spend the rest of his RNR life scrabbling about for kit and making do with whatever equipment he can find in the basement; might as well start that way :)

Fair one.

And yes, the RNR Officer does need to get back to the tailor. Frankly I'm surprised they let him pass out like that.

He was the best cadet on the course, so it would have been a tad unfair...

It's hardly like you have the opportunity to spend loads of time with the seamstress or Turner Virr during the two week course. In fact your lunch break on the first Wednesday is the only opportunity.

It's hardly the regulars and their fitting appointments, opportunity to go back for adjustments during your time at Dartmouth, and time at the end of the course to get ready for passing out.

Regardless of whether the lad was awesome on the course or not, he looks ridiculous. You can see where his shoulders finish three or four inches before the sleeves on his jacket start.

Not being funny but RN Officer's rig is essentially just a double breasted suit, it shouldn't be too hard to grab a jacket off the peg that's a close enough fit. It's not the lad's fault, his instructors should've gripped this.
