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. Military personnel are required to always wear their uniform except when their occupation would require otherwise, or they are substituting their uniform for equipment available in their occupation's lockers, such as doctors wearing scrubs, or engineers wearing a radiation suit. Religious headgear in colors that match the main color of each uniform is permitted.
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.
- 1 General Rules
- 2 Other Considerations
- 3 Expeditionary Corps uniforms
- 4 Fleet uniforms
These rules apply to all branches unless specifically overriden. If an item of uniform is not listed (e.g. no shirt listed), same piece of clothing from 'lower' uniform is used (e.g. service shirt for dress uniform).
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. Can be worn with a variety of additional work-related items, including job-specific clothing like lab coats, armour, helmets, welding masks, and gloves. Generally, anything in your job locker counts as job-specific clothing. Shoulder-boards and other uniform accessories should never be transferred to job-specific clothing and should remain on the main uniform.
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. Can be worn with equipment belts and holsters, but no webbing or vests.
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. Should not be worn with any extra equipment or gear save holsters, armbands, ranks, specialty pins, or awards.
Grooming and Hair
While in uniform, the crew is expected to maintain a certain standard of personal hygiene and grooming. This means that you must have groomed hair that does not cover your eyes, extend past the collar of your uniform, or too far from the top of your head. As much as you'd like to have a massive afro, it would be hard to fit under a helmet if the ship came under attack. Trimmed mustaches are permitted, provided they are not split at any point. Facial hair is not permitted, except for the 3, 5, and 7 O'clock shadow, and their mustachioed variants. The following styles are permitted for all military personnel, with facial hair in italics:

The crew is allowed to wear simple and conservative jewelry, and it must be in good taste while in uniform. Eccentricities or faddishness are not permitted, and the jewelry may not present a safety hazard. One ring per hand is permitted, plus a wedding or engagement ring set.
