The images look like a uniform that would probably be more comfortable and accommodating.

None of this changes the fact that I think we should just wear MTP day to day with RAF flashes.

It’s a fair point BV and I have never understood why RAF officers have to pay for a uniform we are mandated to wear, except for tradition, and the fact that for all of those 23 years you have been receiving a benefit from the tax man to help pay for that uniform. As I said, colleagues I’ve spoken to, who have used the new ordering system, have said that the newer uniform is better quality and fits better.
