While playing as Crew aboard the SEV Torch, there will be four general types of uniform you will be wear, the wear of which is governed by IC regulations. Each has its own individual components, and are appropriate for different occasions and activities. Don't mix and match components of each uniform unless this guide specifically permits it.
Religious headgear in colors that match the main color of each uniform is permitted. The most basic is the Physical Training or "PT" uniform. This consists of shorts, a tee shirt, ankle socks, and plain shoes. This uniform, as the name suggests, is only for working out, sleeping, or wearing under other uniforms, and should not be worn at work. The next type of uniform is the "utility" uniform, which is what you'll be wearing most of the time. This uniform is durable, simple, and protects the wearer from a variety of hazards. It can be worn with any variety of job-related equipment, and under things like hardsuits or armor. Don't wear any decorations like medals or ribbons in this, with the exception of specialty pins for Fleet personnel. The "service" uniform is similar to business formal attire, often worn when in an office, or at official functions. This shouldn't be standard wear for the most crew aboard the Torch; unless your job doesn't involve much physical activity, keep this one in your locker. Can be worn with decorations, and often includes jacket to wear over the main uniform. Finally, your "dress" uniform is for special occasions, much like a tuxedo or little black dress, it has mystical properties around your preferred gender. As the name suggests, this should be saved for events like visiting dignitaries, or a formal court martial.
While in uniform, you are representing yourself, your organization, and your ship. Take pride in your appearance, and do your best to do your service proud. Do not smoke, eat, chew gum, drink, or put your hands in your pockets while walking. If you have any questions about the uniform, don't hesitate to ask OOCly, or in an adminhelp. Crew that are off-duty are permitted to wear civilian clothes, and are not required to follow grooming guidelines, though it is recommended they still comport themselves with dignity and professionalism.
