    Haven't seen a thread like this in Teh Barracks yet to my knowledge. What are some of the tricks or techniques you use to keep your uniforms looking sharp?

    Just picked up BDU cuff stuffers for mine today, still trying to get use to them. :o

    Another thing I usually use is Leather Luster on my boots because I hate polishing. :hsd: :o

    well, if you wore white undershirts id say buy jockey cause they last forever and necks dont stretch

    also, tuck them into your skivvies and it will keep them in place around your neck

    Starch the hell outta your uniform. Lets dry. Then iron w/ alot of steam. Lightly spray down wiht water. Then let dry. Steam with iron and i swear your uniform is stand up on its own.

    turn your uniforms inside out and spray with some Stay Flo then let them dry and then turn them back rightside out and iron. I like waxing my boots so they have a good shine that'll usually shine better than leather luster.

    I've heard of people using diluted wood glue to get wicked creases in the sleaves, anyone try that?
