Ceremonial dress and military uniform protocol: what to wear and how to wear it. There’s a lot to get right.

Backed with hundreds of years of experience, we provide an advisory service to military formations on Dress Regulations and Uniform Protocol. This includes advice on rank insignia, orders of dress and the protocols of wearing Orders, Decorations and Medals.

We have advised Royal Households, Honour Guards and Ceremonial Troops worldwide, taking into consideration the cultural and gender specific nuances, performance requirements and budget.

Our managers are experienced in Royal Court and ceremonial parade etiquette and are available to assist you to make the right choices to meet your needs.

We use a systems engineering approach, reviewing the full requirements of your uniform program. This process defines exacting requirements which can be subject to technical trade-offs to balance performance with cost.
