The Army's Return to a Classic Look
Those cheap-looking polyester Army dress greens are most likely headed for the trash heap. Gen. Peter Schoomaker, Army chief of staff, tells us that he "very much" backs a proposal aired last week in Army Times to favor the Army's dress blues as the only traditional uniform. "You might remember the blue uniform is our traditional uniform,"he says. The green dress uniform was adopted in 1954, but some soldiers think the polyester fabric makes it look cheap. Soldiers currently wear dress blues for ceremonial occasions, green for office work. "We don't need so many uniforms," the chief says.

I'm not a big fan of the Class A's at all. Sure hate to have to go out and buy some Dress Blues, though.

When I was in the Marines I advocated a Dress Blues and Cammies clothing issue. For this heresy I was condemned as a Shitbird.

Really though three uniforms (and we had two types of green Alphas, Winter and Summer weight) and it was really too much. Though our Forest Green Alphas were 10X the uniforms as the doggie green Class As. And, ours were individually tailored while the soldiers' were "off-the-rack"
