At 17 years of age in late 1990, I entered the recruitment office in Montreal with parental consent while wearing old school 14 hole Doc Martens, and Punk hairdo and an old leather jacket with misfits patches sown in.... The attending Sergeant simply stated "Infantry!!" at the sight of that Lol.... Six years later, I walked the streets anew as a Civilian a bit wiser, and infinitely more jaded on the mechanics of Life (especially with the memories of a few tours overseas)… Joking aside, clean & respectable attire is recommended.
