make this simple, there's the high gloss one you see, and then there's the non high gloss one, go for the non high gloss.

NEVER, I mean NEVER use Starch it destroys the Uniform and Ruins everything it touches

I don't use starch on my clothes...I find it very rough on fabrics. I just mist water over it before I go over it with the Iron.


Thanks you guys, This guy has a pair of 12's on teh Ebay I can probably fit into...otherwise it's only a 15 buck loss and I found another pair for 40 at this Frank Bee uniform site.

Any answer on the uniform creases though?

If you use starch the right way then you are fine. I've been using it for two years, only one mishap and it washed right out. Been using it on the same uniform as well.

Well it takes incredible skill to do it. NEVER recommend this to a new cadet

It actually was pretty damn fun and fulfilling. At points hard and mentally strenuous, but I can't say I didn't pull anything out of it...and I'm only on my second drill! If you think you can take it, by all means go for it.


What cadet corps are you in right now might I ask? If you're in CAP, I've been wanting to join CAP too.

I found one and got the info package in the mail a couple weeks ago. It's just I'm not sure yet if I'm gonna be able to juggle it all right now, especially with a license. I'm considering to join in May when I can drive because right now I have Sea Cadets which is an hour away, and I'm also the Master Councilor of my Demolay chapter (It's a social fraternity you men should consider joining www.demolay.org) and just a whole bunch of other factors.

Thanks though Nulli.
