At this point I feel like making the RCMP wear red serge and riding boots year round, I think some pillbox hats will be nice to.
I believe that RMC and Emirates Airlines have cornered the global supply of pillbox hats. If the RCMP want some, they'll need a contact through PWGSC with the usual appropriate regional benefits.   ;D

Well, I can understand why you don't want purchases discussed in the original Merx thread; this one is ready for Radio Chatter....

Granite Gear.  Mid priced, not a big tactical player but not Xui Pao's Airsoft Sewing Cooperative.
Done, 34 years, 43 days complete, got's me damn pension!

.. Really getting into the whole retro thing? Seems to be "in" right now!

I was thinking more as a punishment for some of the organizational asshattery going on within the org. Red serge on summer duty every day and pillbox hat in the winter should do it.
