    Just wondering. I know they've been around for awhile, but I was one of the last to change over. Generally speaking I like that we FINALLY got away from the Vietnam-era BDUs which were frankly idiotic for several reasons - eg the shiny boots. ah military intelligence :rolleyes: Love these new suede or whatever they are on the new ones. Also love the no-ironing thing and none of this summer vs winter version bit.

    Thanks for posting pics of the new BDU's so we could make an informed decision.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about I'm not interested in your opinion.

    He does make a valid point. I know what you're referring to but I sure as hell won't vote on it because you haven't provided enough information for people to make an informed choice.

    Grow the fuck up.

    Since the recent repeal of DADT there is going to be another change to the uniforms.

    They are to be designed by Armani and have a more tailored look to them.

    And no more olive drab green or brown desert colors.

    Now the uniforms will be in flamboyant colors like magenta are pink and of course with matching boots and other accessories. :cool:

    I can't speak for the Army, Air Force, Marines, or Coasties - but I can speak for the Nav. My thoughts?

    Aboard ship -

    Sailors belong in dungarees.

    Once they make Chief, they belong in khakis.

    All I can say for the new Navy BDUs is don't fall overboard unless you're wearing an emergency locator beacon.
