Man everything seems to come back to Army Res and Reg F relationship and structuring, or lack there of eh ?

I had no idea Naval dress ideas were part of the problem.
If you have a gap between your breast pocket and your name tag, then that is where Ivan is going to slip a SSN or a BTG through. We cannot afford a accoutrements gap.

This seems the appropriate place...

For the next round of uniform fixes for the RCN, can we get a hat mold that isn't round? Seriously... To get a hat that is comfortable, I need to look like Dark Helmet.

Edit: I have the new hat, but to get a hat that fits front to back, it sticks out at the sides... I feel like I'm not the only human that does not have a round head.

This will sound weird, but can you form the new hat?

I plan to try, but because we are limited to one new hat right now I don't want to risk mangling it and not having a hat at all.
At least taking out the miniature pool noodle should help…

The new hats don't have the storage ring, or at least that I have been able to find.

The advantage of a hat that is too large around the sides is it naturally want to sit at a jaunty angle... I'll just take my years of practice wearing a wedge, and apply it to the peak cap.

It's been done before, so I'll sell it as bring back tradition.

I mean, if you're going to use an example, Max Bernays is a good one.

Id like to see the services be able to tinker with their uniforms and accoutrements without having to seek approval from some multi service CAF Dress committee.
Seem to remember 3 Mech Cdo being "gifted" an american style camo dickie in the early 70"s. CO's decision made binding by the RSM. No further discussion or comment! BTW they were some uncomfortable.
