For sure, 3Bs would be much better if they fit. I’m tall and thin. How, in a service of primarily young men (for whom this build is not uncommon), can I not get a short sleeve shirt that fits correctly?DEU needs improvement in the quality control, materials, and cut. That said, it's still more appropriate for sitting at a desk sending emails and filling spreadsheets, than CADPAT, flight suits, or NCDs. I myself dreaded wearing DEU before coming to Ottawa, but quickly realized it was more comfortable than CADPAT when working in an office.
Harkening back to the authority thing, in no way do I project more authority/professionalism/office-appropriate-vibe in a parachute of a short sleeve shirt or a dumpy v-neck sweater than I do in a flight suit. Flight suits fit me, and look a damn sight more professional than some ill-fitting business wear.
