Wear the Uniform properly
We want the guys with discipline.
You are going to learn to become militaristic, militant, political fighters.
You are going to get into training. You are going to discipline your bodies and minds. To learn self defense.
It starts with the uniform.
Unit leaders need to get their men to toe the line and wear the uniform properly.
When you start looking like a Brownshirt, you get an indescribable sense of pride; you start feeling like a Brownshirt, you start acting like a Brownshirt!
In order to find the proper placement of the shoulder patch , you take the shirt you lay it down on an ironing board or table. You lay it on a towel. There is a seam that runs along the bottom of the shirt sleeve. You will find that. You will press it flat. Then you will make sure it runs all the way up to the shoulder seam.
That is the middle of the shirt sleeve.
Once you have the crease ironed in, you know where the bottom-center point of the NSM shield will go.
You fold the patch in half and you make a little stitch to hold it in place and then you center the top part of the patch and you put a couple of little stitches into that.
And then you go to town on it, sewing it firmly to the sleeve with a black thread.
The Rank Collar tab, which you order from Colonel Bishop, if you are in the SA, goes on the left.
The edges of the rhombozoid collar tabs matches with the seem on the collar of the shirt and the bottom tip should be aligned so that the collar tab will run straight along your collar and the point of your insignia will match right on the point.
You will have to leave yourself enough room if you get piping to put around the edge of the collar.
Every Brownshirt should have that piping!
Donít add Velcro because the more you wash it the worse your shirt will look.
Other patches awards, any kind of addition, etc must not be worn on the uniform unless you actually earned them.
Then you get the shirt right way out and iron the outside of that sleeve.
Repeat for the other sleeve and the body of the shirt.
The starch on the inside of the shirt will ensure that you have a crease. You want a crease that is so sharp it will cut paper.
Collars are difficult to iron. They should be ironed first on the wrong side, starting at the collar points. Work the iron in to the center point, leading with the point of the iron. Then flip over to the right side of the fabric and repeat the process. Don't press down; instead, use the heat of the iron to glide over the fabric.
One expert adviser said that the best damp cloth to use is a manís handkerchief. She said that it is as good as, if not better than a special purpose ironing cloth and a great deal cheaper.
For sharp military creases, the crease area of the uniform is sometimes soaked with a mixture of one part wood glue to three parts water. The rest of the uniform is lightly sprayed with the mixture. Creases are ironed wet for the best results. SA Men also use a mixture of half starch, half water to create a fabric so stiff it can almost stand alone. Crisp uniforms are a part of learning and discipline in the military They help teach the our members to always to look professional, and they aid in teaching the discipline of following directions precisely The ability to do even the simplest task precisely is extremely important.

Using a small circular motion (see note 2 below), buff the dried polish with the wet cloth until a shine starts to develop. Then, still using the damp rag on your finger, apply a fine layer of polish in a circular motion and keep on rubbing lightly until a hazy shine develops. Keeping the rag damp, build up the shine with thin layers of polish applied in circles with light pressure until a glossy shine develops.
When sufficient shine has developed, use a clean, dry, soft cloth to give it a final buff and remove any last haze.
1) The reason you use a wet cloth is to stop the fine coats of polish sticking to the cloth and to encourage the polish to stick to the leather. You want to keep on building up thin layers of wax until you have a completely smooth surface that gives the glossy shine.
2) After the first heavy coat of polish you must use minimal amounts of polish to build up the shine. If you use too much polish, the solvent in the polish you are applying will dissolve the base you have already built up and you will have to start again in that area.
