I've always liked the old uniforms/dress uniforms in comparison to current standards and am loving this retro change. Hope it sticks!

Looks good, much better than the camo pajamas they used to wear recently

that said, as long as costs can be kept reasonable

Sticks? Looks like they went with buttons and belts instead of duck tape this time.

You have to remember that our military industrial complex is a works program geared towards employing Americans in various ways. I would guess the majority of the uniforms are produced by domestic companies/factories. A quick google search seemed to turn up some with factories in Alabama, etc.

How come only the girl gets the WWI style pocket flaps? And what's that guy sitting on the floor doing?




Edit: Oh, I see, that's because she doesn't get pockets up top. Never mind.

I was wondering how many posts that would take. Making a mental note to take the under on 9.5 in future.

That said: good riddance to those stupid camo pajamas.

A very classy look I think.
I like the fact that they didn't PC the design by making the male/female identical.
I'm frankly surprised.

In these times it is terrific that they actually acknowledge that women and men differ - in shape.

I like these new uniforms better than the Dress Greens worn when I served. Curious though, why SMA Dailey is not wearing a name plate.

Shhhhh! He's undercover, about to blend in with the civilian populace .... they'll just assume he's a doorman!
