The look of steel and boots is very nice. Adding military gear seems to give it that extra kick. I first placed him into wrist shackles and leg irons, with my connecting chain keeping them together. Wanting to hood my pup as well, I used the electricians bundling tape for a full coverage hood. Of course, I had to shove a pair of my sweaty panties into his mouth first to keep him occupied. Oh how he loves to squirm when in bondage, pleading with his panty filled and taped up mouth for… more?
Gearing up in public can be quite a thrill. No matter what gear is put on, you can be sure you’ll get questions and looks. This can be intimidating for new people and can tend to push people away from doing it in the first place. I’ve dealt with this myself, but in the long run, you shouldn’t worry about what others think. Think of it this way, if they don’t like it or think it is odd/strange, that is ok. You’re out there because you’re having fun and enjoying your gear. I’ve gone out in latex catsuits, wetsuits, motorcycle leathers, zentai suits, cycling skinsuits, and lycra tights. They are all a lot of fun to wear and be seen in. So, I strongly encourage all that have the ability to go out in their gear. You’d never know who you might find out there that is also kinky and wants to go out as well. Doing so will also help encourage others to go out in their gear, which gives us all more to watch and enjoy.
Gear Up and Come On Out!
My Pup Sparky loves uniforms. He also enjoys boots. This time around, I had him in a set of NWU’s, muzzled, and in fist mitts. Using some of his restraints, and some of mine, I strapped him tightly to the bed for some bondage and gear fun. I dressed in my desert MARPAT gear as well. There is just something quite enjoyable about having a bound boy in uniform under your boot.
Proper wear of uniforms is essential no matter what the context. It is a sign of respect as well as gives a good physical appearance. Black leather combat boots should be kept shined and in good shape. There is also something known as an “Inspection Shine”, which adds extra shine to the toes of the boots. Laces should always be tucked in, giving a cleaner appearance. Pants are usually tucked into the boots in lieu of blousing. For those that wish to properly blouse their pants, straps should be obtained which are specific to blousing. Various techniques, which can be found on Youtube.com and other sites, are recommended.
Belts should always be worn as well. The color and type of the belt varies depending on the uniform. The ACU (Army) and MCCUU (Marine) uniforms use a nylon webbed belt. The blouse, otherwise known as an over shirt, should never be tucked in. It is designed to fall below the belt. Some uniforms have pockets in the lower areas, so tucking it in would cover those. Pockets should also not be so full as to sag and bulge. Covers, hats to everyone else, are another part of the uniform that care should be taken in their wear. A cover should fit snug but not pulled down upon the head. It generally rests upon the head and should not touch the ears. It is truly just a “cover” instead of a hat. Eight point covers, my favorite, should not sag in appearance. Covers should also not be worn indoors, similar to wearing a hat indoors. Storage of the cover varies by military branch. Some allow it to be folded, others require it to be held to the side. In general, keep it in good shape and don’t just stuff it into a pocket.
Other aspects of uniform wear are more specific to each style of uniform. Marine and Navy uniforms share many design features, though the Marine uniform is more designed for combat. The Navy uniform is designed for work, hence its name “NWU“ Navy Working Uniform. The NWU uses a zippered fly instead of the button fly common to the rest of the combat uniforms. Pockets tend to be buttoned instead of using hook and loop closures. Army uniforms use hook and loop closures throughout the uniform, which has been seen as a design flaw.
So, when you’re going out in a uniform, show it some respect. Our armed forces wear this gear every day and work hard for it. I’ve had many active duty personnel tell me that I not only did a good job with my uniform, but they even offered tips to make it better. I certainly consider that a sign that I have done at least a decent job with my gear. I write this to help others do well with their gear.
Uniforms mean a lot of things to a lot of people. They are also quite varied in style. Military uniforms in particular have piqued my curiosity for some time now. The camouflage uniforms, mostly US military ones, are the ones I favor the most. Originally, I only liked the older BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) style, a style most commonly seen as “camo” when it comes up in conversation. The current US Army uniform, the ACU (Army Combat Uniform) was my first of the “digital” styles. I later added a MCCUU (Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform) Woodland set to my collection. The desert variation came later to me as I didn’t find an attraction to it for a while. Of all my uniforms, I still find the USMC Woodland MARPAT (MARine PATtern) uniform to be my favorite.
Uniforms themselves also command a lot of respect. While I personally have not been in the military, I do have a lot of respect for the uniforms. The power a military uniform commands gets my interest, but not nearly as much as the detail that goes into wearing them. When I started with uniforms, I thought the blouse was supposed to be tucked in. I’m sure I even went out that way a few times before realizing that it wasn’t right. In the process of trying to find out what color undershirt and other small details went into a uniform, I learned so much more than I expected. I found the USMC guidelines for the proper application of straitjackets, handcuffs, and leg irons. This information was discovered while I was also looking for information on military police and their gear. It has been the MP look that has attracted me the most. How could I go wrong with a combination of bondage and uniforms?
Proper wear of uniforms, outside the military, is still something that should be done. Small details, such as tucking the boot laces in, blousing the pants, proper wear of the cover, and the proper color belt are essential to maintaining a good appearance when wearing any uniform. I strongly suggest going to the US military websites to see how to wear a uniform right. I also suggest against wearing any rank or medal that is not earned. Depending on what is worn, it may also be illegal to do so. While sometimes uniform wear itself is frowned upon, there are still many venues it is OK to wear one at. Leather bars, uniform nights, and events are good locations to wear a uniform. I’ve worn mine many times to various leather bars and events.
