I think you old timers would be appalled by the uniform now.
The collar attaches to the jacket with velcro.
The two ends of the silk are not sewn together by the wearer, it is adjusted by velcro which then sits under the collar.
The ribbon is permanently attached to the bottom of the silk and fastens to the two beckets on the jacket with a press stud.
The lanyard is still the same.
I can never get mine to look right!
