But if you fall overboard, will you'll still blend in with the waves?

Once, I wanted to blend in with the WAVES.

Navy uniforms have gone downhill since I left. Does anyone know if they ever brought back the WWII style of khakis with the black tie and jacket?

10 years from now we'll hear how the chemical on these uniforms caused XYZ.

I think they need to readopt the bell bottom pant-suits from the 70's.

I like the camo where it makes it impossible to find you if you fall overboard. Great idea.

Coveralls are not uniforms, subby.

Jesus, it's not like they're not surrounded by water. Just keep a barrel of water on deck, and they can put themselves out if they catch on fire.

It should be said that flaming in Navy uniforms has been going on for quite some time.

/You know what part of the Navy the Marines are?
//The Men's department.

That kind of stuff happens a lot in the Navy, huh?

/ Glad I was in the Army.  Played with things that went BOOM and didn't have to wear flameproof underwear to do it.

Yes they are, sort of.  The blue coveral is issued to sailors.  The rules on where and when it can be worn are erratic,  and vary according to the whims of whoever might be in in charge.

Don't think so but at least they brought back the Cracker Jack  unforms  after that 1980s abomination.

Could be worse. You could have been stuck with that stupid beret the Army adopted in the 90's.

The Army should bring back the Ike jacket.

The old Khakis in the Marine Corps looked sharp  but you had to starch them and if you ever sat down in them it looked like you were hit with a wrinkle grenade. Clerks in the HQ used to type and other work standing up to avoid the wrinkle problem.   New fabrics mean no starch but they just don't look a sharp. 

One good thing is modern uniforms and material have essentially done away with stupid practice of starching the utility uniform an spit shinning combat boots.

As opposed to the light blue chambray shirt and blue denim bell bottom dungarees. Those really stood out. And those who want to see them back probably never wore them. I did and they sucked.

That's the same across all branches.

/berets everywhere, patrol caps only in the motor pool, mich when you're past the cattle guard unless it's patrol cap, full battle rattle past the cattle guard unless you're on range detail then it's pistol belt with canteen, no fleece caps unless I say so, no gloves unless I'm cold...

Ah, there was nothing like slipping into a freshly over-starched set of fatigues.  Just like walking around in a cardboard suit.

you are a bad man and should feel bad. those were the epitome of comfort and style. well unless you were on a cruiser and the master at arms when batshiat nuts if you had your sleeves rolled up. even just twice. and you where on the roof of the admirals bridge chipping paint. in port. in the summer. and he was on the main deck and screaming at you.

I could go a month on one heavy starch for my winters before they needed to go back. Kept a nice soft pair of summers in the car in case we were doing any training.
Didn't miss polishing boots when it went away, but now that I wear real shoes to work every day, I'm glad I learned how to do it.

Funny part is .... I was in the Navy - I used to sit atop of 250 lb. - 500 lb - and 1000 lb. bombs in the magazines (I was ships ordinance) and I smoke weed almost daily and I'd do it again today in a heartbeat.
That's a part of the Men's Dept. not even Marines wanted any part of.
Man Up Marine !!

Well, OK, pretty sexy!  RAWR!!!

/ So makeup is OK, now?
// In the Army in the early 70's and never saw any makeup.  Actually, saw very few women in uniform.

That would be a screenshot of Rihanna from a bad movie that won't be mentioned

I have always thought the Navy uniforms looked odd. But I was told one thousand times how the dungarees and sailors hat was functional in water.  The officers uniforms seemed like something a doorman to a hotel would wear.

/Spent 14 months in BIOT when in the Army...don't ask.

They're in the process of bringing them back. Still in the wear-testing phase, last I heard.
