Would anyone happen to know where I could get a decent mess undress white waistcoat per chance?
Thanks in advance,

Don't suppose you've tried the "Uniform clothing store" or "Slops" as we like to call it!!!!

Alternatively, try Ebay

A long shot, I did 3 years out in JSSU(Cyprus) returning in 05. If you know anyone serving out there they'd be able to sort you out and post it to you. Don't know what time frame your looking at but the Cypriots can take their time over things!!

Garry Beverley Tailoring of Portsmouth advertises them on his web site.
And that would also be my recommendation - G&H quality tailoring but at a more reasonable cost.

Too late for G&H in Portsmouth anyway! They were holding the last week of a closing down sale when I was down at the Gunwharf a few weeks ago. And Bernards is closed and shuttered.

I'll bet they had loads of waistcoats going for next to nothing as well :threaten:

Slightly off thread, for which I apologise, but when was official "Mess Dress" introduced for senior rates, and what does it consist of? We just used to wear a bow tie with No 1s !!

There is no official mess dress for Seniors Rates. If someone doesn't have mess undress then I believe its by mess rules which is normally Number 1's with a bow tie and no medals.

I need some Mess Dress and I'm not so sure about Turner Virr. Duty dit is that you can get it cheaper in Guzz!

At the end of the day, it's a drinking suit I'll wear probably 3 times a year max so I'd rather not pay a fortune on it!

I've worn my No 1's with bow tie and negat medals previously but I don't want to thrash my No 1's when I'm 'tired and emotional'.

There's a Naval tailors at the Stonehouse end of Union Strasse, Fennwicks I think its called, alas don't know the score regarding cheapness.
