    that's actually a good question. I have the leather Bates uniform shoes (the plain and not the hi gloss ones) and was wondering if they were right or not. Also, should the shirts be short or long sleeved? I was going to hit McDonald uniform in the northeast after getting fitted, assuming i get the letter.

    Black leather work shoes (that's what the paper say) then I heard military style shoes just want to get an idea of what to get when the time come. Your letter should come after the holiday. When I get fitted I'll try to find out more about the uniform.

    Low-quarter black oxford toe with 4 lace eyelets. Save yourself a few bucks and pick them up at payless or target. Then take the time to work them up to a nice shine.

    188hopeful: Since it'll be summer months go short-sleeve. Get the elbeco cotton so you can use it when you graduate. You'll only be wearing it for the first few weeks until they get you your Cadet clothing issue.

    Make sure the PT gear you get before you are issued Cadet gear is logo free as well.

    As far as pants go, since I'm sure someone is wondering, go with the elbeco 4 pocket uniform trousers. The non-poly ones. They'll be another thing you can use after you graduate, since they are what you get issued later. Unless you are very good with an iron, I found it easier to spend the few bucks on the days off and get them pressed at the cleaners.
