Not many people understand the style and charisma that sticks with the men in uniform. Believe me, there is nothing more appealing than a smart officer turned up in a crisp uniform. You can never buy that outfit outside. Like the Bourneville ad, you have to earn it to understand it. The pride which comes along with wearing the uniform is out of the earth and you must experience it to understand it.
