Gents, it's been wonderful, but I'll be disappearing for a few months to Navy Officer Candidate School... which means it's time to harass the Navy tailors! Outside of showing 1/4-1/2" of cuff, what else should I yell at them for? I'm sure you guys would have a field day!

Navy tailors

I don't know about now but for the many years I was stationed in Newport the base tailors were pretty good. If you go into Newport there a still a few good uniform sellers nearby. Good luck. Be ready for the weather on Coasters Harbor Island.

Surely depends upon the station. The Academy tailors are dreadful, but I presume something decent can be found in Newport proper. As Mr. Pike says, there is no chance that the OP will have any time to worry about his tailoring. By all accounts it's an intense 12 weeks.

Congratulations and good luck!

The coming several months will be a defining period in your life. Take things one day at a time and, as odd as this may sound, enjoy the experience...it will prove a foundation point, on which you will reflect back, throughout the rest of your life! Wish I could join you and do it all over again....although in a sister service! ;) Good luck and keep us in the loop regarding your progress.

Ask them to line your jacket in pink or purple.
Maybe I should go for a Service Dress Smoking Jacket?

If all goes well, I will finish about a month before my older brother-- so even if I get rolled into a later class for failing something, I still have some extra time padded in. Of course, he said he's more likely to flip me off rather than salute me, so we'll see!

Otherwise, thank you all. This is a forum of great men, and I'm sure I'll be back. I've learned all kinds of things on here that I would have never known otherwise. It should be an intense (and freezing!) three months!

This is coming from someone with an Army Airborne/SF background. Who has been at both academies as a medical officer.
I have seen the tough my friend.
In my work, and training.

Navy OCS kicks butt!!
GOOD LUCK
Worse than even BUDS!!
