    As long as none of those cousins were marrying, then I'm okay with it.

    EDIT: Especially if they were first cousins...

      Listen, as probably every man that has been married learned really quick....

      The only thing that matters is what the BRIDE TO BE WANTS.

      The wedding is for her and that is the way it should be.

        The wedding is for the couple and the couple alone; not just for the bride.

        The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

          Royal Blue Sleeve Stripes

          Anyone out there know of any FD that uses Royal Blue Stripes on the sleeve cuff of their Class A Uniform. According to some out there, supposed to be a standard for FF.

            It might be a regional thing, but at my old (all career) department it was considered tradition to wear Class A's to a *firefighter* wedding. I remember some weddings where all the groomsmen as well as the groom were wearing Class A's. It looked pretty darned sharp. I also wore mine to my wedding. But, the kicker in my old department was that we had all bought our own Class A's, so the department and/or chief didn't have any authority over telling us where it could be worn.

              Why are you asking this all over this forum?

              Is this really such a BURNING question?? Who gives a flying ...?

                In response to ChiefKN

                I contacted the moderator for the forums looking for the correct forum to ask this question.
                There are some proposed changes to our Class A uniform policy by a new Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Chief. They are both saying that Royal Blue stripes on the sleeve cuffs are a national standard for the FF Rank. They are currently wearing Black stripes. Was simply trying to find out if anyone is using Royal Blue. I have been around awhile and have never seen anyone wearing Royal Blue in my travels.

                  This has been addressed in other fourms!

                    Just so you've got an answer here, I don't think there's a national standard for Class A uniforms. All the depts in my area have plain sleeves until they become an officer.

                      Who would even set standards on uniforms?

                      Good lord, we can't get anyone to set standards on hose threads, etc!

                        Has anyone other than these two esteemed gentlemen ever heard of such a "national standard?"

                          Last Post Regarding Class A

                          As it turns out, the Oregon State Fire Chiefs Association has a standard for Class A uniforms. It includes Royal Blue stripes on the sleeve cuffs for FF Rank. Thanks for the input.

                          The following link is a picture of what they look like. Enough said.

                            my guys all purchased their own class A's as well....but as long as it has my (fire department) patch and my badge on it they already assume i have the authority to tell them where and when to wear them. ive never had an issue and wouldnt imagine i ever should....common sense should go a long way when wearing a uniform.

                              Wow, guess all the other issues in Oregon were resolved, so they switched to the pressing issue of uniform design.

                                I'm sure there's a "troll" or two who lurks here that would.
