Oh yeah..I forgot all about that. I spent a few hundred on a new set of Class-A's. Quite a bit for something I hardly ever wore (but they sure did look nice).

I guess a lot of people don't realize that the issued clothing ends up getting replaced by stuff we purchase. If you want a uniform that actually fits, you got to buy it. Especially boots. Most people I served with bought their own boots. Taking care of your feet is pretty important.

The issue stuff is under a massive contract, and people aren't all built the same.
