Most people in the real military would laugh at you for donning those.
CAP takes textiles WAY too seriously.

Ah - got it.  Noted.

Thanks for pointing out that me, and pretty much everyone I've ever seen in a military uniform, CAP or otherwise, are wrong.

Good to know.

I wore them my entire 31-1/2 year career in the "real military" any time I had to wear something other then Fatigues/BDU's/ABU's/Flight Suits.
Don't recall any laughter either.

Uh what? I'm pretty sure my first pair were issued at Parris Island. Every Marine I know wore them every time you were in anything but cammies.

I'm with Tim and PHall. I never wear a service or dress uniform without shirt stays. I refuse to look like a billowy mushroom.

8 years in the real military, the non-shirtstay wearers were in the minority.

I'm very curious where you draw this from.

I have to say that the Canoe Club has less opportunity to wear shirt garters than the other services. I never wore them on AD, and only saw Marines wear them when I was stationed jointly with them.

I guess because the dress whites and dress blues weren't tucked in and you wore a tshirt under it if I remember correctly? The khakis would be the only chance I assume.

You forgot about the recently introduced NSU for E1-E6. Same as chucks but with different color trousers.

Concur. Even those that didn't wear the slingshots wore something

Gents, I think CAPLTC is one of those fine folks who likes to join a board, stir up a bunch of crap and then watch the furball.

I remember in PCola for A school some of my navy classmates wore shirt stays on the chambray utility shirts too.

Didn't forget. Don't know about it. Been awhile since I've seen a Sailor in uniform.
