There's a couple of small points that come to mind but they're tiny overall.

It could be because of the angle. The yellow shoulder flash here

shows it lining up square with the webbing strap underneath but this could well not be an issue as it's there as per standards. it might just be aesthetic choice so I would imagine it'd clear.

Your wearing of the sniper veil gives it a nice Dads Army look, that makes me smile.

The gaps in the stripes on the outside of the sleeve look a bit wider than usual. They're not easy to see so you might not come into any problems there.

It's good to some a different mix of things here, I hope it clears and adds some more variety to the pack. You might find people want that kind of helmet.

I've adjusted the yellow patch.

The stripes on the arms are 1.5" wide, 0.5" thick and spaced 0.25" apart. Made using a handy template I just so happened to have to hand. After I'd measured it out and cut all the holes.

Don't get me started on Dad's Army though. I think I annoyed a fellow trooper enough by getting the theme song stuck in her head at Christies in December.

The mess kit logo looks more red in some images, is that your lighting?

No, that would a mistake on my part. I'll correct that too and upload some more images.

I can't see much that's jumping out as out of place apart from looking clean. Give it a punt and submit it, I'd be interested how it goes.

I've submitted it after some fuss. Looks like links to DeviantArt no longer work and I've had to link to what I've uploaded here instead. These images are all reduced size but hopefully good enough.

I'd agree with Geoff, it does look a bit clean. But other than that I think it looks great.

Good luck with clearance.

Looks like the flat stripes down the sleeves aren't good enough to clear. I've been advised to use puff additive to redo them but I've no experience at all with screen printing materials and I don't know if it will work when there are already two layers of paint on the fabric.
The only alternative I can think of is to glue felt over the painted stripes.
Can anyone recommend a good glue to use for sticking the felt over painted fabric?

There are some craft paints that you can brush on that puff up. How much puff are they looking for as pics don't look that raised?

And the standards mention raised stripes, don't they?

I don't know exactly how much the stripes should be raised. I think that the issue is that the combination of a khaki jacket and flat tan stripes makes the stripes hard to see. I'm actually thinking now that my best bet could be to stitch felt over the stripes. A couple of stitches at each end should hold them flat.

Perhaps Steven Walker could could give some guidance? He knows about screen printing stuff.

It might partly be that the colours are so similar, that its not standing out?

Yes, I get the feeling that if I had submitted a dark blue or brown jacket then it would have passed since the tan stripes would have been a more noticeably different colour.
I've ordered some felt and hopefully I'll be in a position to resubmit by next weekend. I'd like the option to take it to Nantwich at the end of the month if I can. If only to show off the Corporal Casrich helmet that the judges said is the first in the Rebel Legion.
