    So I've ordered uniforms over two months ago being that I'm down to my last pair of shorts and a couple pair of pants.. Still haven't came in. No one in our center has received any since December and every time we ask about them we get the same bs answer. "We're working on it" or "can't get in touch with anyone". Anyone else experiencing this problem? Seems that they're trying to be cheap and save money. It's getting beyond ridiculous

    Same problem here. Their stingy this time of year, but its not our fault the twinhill uniforms are junk.

    Best day to do that is the day the DM is visiting, that gets their attention.

    I think everyone has the same idea and Twinhill maybe can't keep up? But yes we have the same problem!

    Each Center has just so much money for uniforms, ours is based on pickup volume. The other Center in our building doesn't bring in as much revenue, so they can't order as much as we can.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    You make it sound like they actually can't order them.

    File a grievance receive uniforms. It's that simple.

    We supposedly got shutdown in NewPA feeders. Won't let us order any uniforms. Same crap as last year. "Over budget on uniforms"

    If they would get quality, long lasting uniforms instead of this cheesy crap they would save money in the long run. What am I thinking, this is UPS.

    Sounds about right, it took mine about 3 months to come in.

    Put a order in last Monday for a vest, shirts and pants. It was in last nite, minus the vest that I really needed.

    Just keep wearing the same uniform until the pants are encrusted in salt and the shirt has black sweat stains on all sides.

    Pretty sure they're brought in by bike from Bangladesh to my center. I'd give it another 2 months and then really start wondering.

    Vest came today, the OMS that does our uniform orders is great. Never had a problem getting anything, except years ago when the center manager had issues with the boonie hat and wouldn't let us order them.

    Imagine this...

    UPS uniforms, made by 5.11 tactical.

    Just wait until you know the DM is coming to visit the building, then break out your worst uniform, even tear the sleeve a little if you need too. Then make sure you get close to the DM and see if he says anything.

    Better yet, approach the DM and mention this is the BEST uniform you have, is there any means to get some better ones ordered and in soon?
