    in the outfit

    Hi

    The following quote is from a novel. I don't know the underlined parts, could anyone help me out?

    Thanks in advance.

    "When he was in the army, he once told the guys in his outfit that he'd auditioned for a porn flick but they needed nine and a half inches and he only had nine. The part about auditioning for a porn flick was a total lie but the part about nine inches was close enough. He had the biggest dick in the outfit."

    Re: in the outfit

    When he was in the army, he once told the guys in his outfit that he'd auditioned for a porn flick..

    This informal sense of "outfit" normally refers to a cohesive group or team of people. I'm no expert on the military but I think it would mean a platoon, company, squad or similar unit that the person was a part of.
