    LOL. It was always an impressive look to me. Don't know if the kid has any mastery but I'm sure like all things it will come with time. I think he'll be glad to hear the news.

    I don't see what's so freaking hard about rolling sleeves up properly.:beer1:

    In all fairness, Marines have a pretty dumb way of rolling up their sleeves. There are some more useful ways out there. :wink:

    Funny - I was going to bring this up but thought I would be chastised for being an "old fart".

    I honestly wonder what the new breed does with all its time. When I think of how much time we spent on our uniforms I figure these guys must have an extra couple of hours each day! They are probably spending it in safety, health and welfare briefs instead!

    It has been said that a man rolling up his sleeves for the bare forearm look is the male equivalent of cleavage.

    Funny, I have known cadets/officers to tailor their cadet shirts/BDU to make them "look" better.

    Thank God for that! I thought that was what the young guys with their baggies hanging down that I have to stand behind in line at McDonalds were going for! :biggrin:

    As I understand it, a certain 1stLt I know is spending much more time on the bicep excercises getting ready for 9 March. As far as starch and creases, I know that his get steamed so the lay flat and have no wrinkles. Brass and shoes are shinny on Bravo/Charley Friday. Does that count?

    Gotta wear that size 14 shirt with the sleaves hemmed and tailored when you know you've been selected for cadre :wink:
