I am presuming before, but I have been wondering about this also.
Are you on the fitness test on Weds (21st)?

My uniform fitting was horrid, the lady would not let me have longer length trousers and I have a 35" inside leg, then she gave me a huge hat which wobbled around and I had to argue to get a smaller one. Hope your guys aren't as bad.

I wouldnt worry too much, the way it worked for us was we had our uniform fitting (none of the 8 of us had perfect uniforms that fitted!) and in our first week, we were given the entire kit in a massive box. We tried in all on then and there, and anything that we were not happy with, or did not fit, we told the uniform stores and they changed it. None of us had a problem changing anything, and all of us had something that wasnt right, from hats that were too small, to trousers that caused rashes. Mind you, obviously I am at a different force to you, but I wouldnt worry about wobbly hats or too short trousers!
