No fucking thank you. I went to a military college where we wore the traditional wool blouse with the webbing, it wasn't nearly as ornate as that and I can tell you that it's the most uncomfortable shit you'd ever wear: too fucking hot in the summer, not nearly warm enough in the winter, it's wool so its heavy, scratchy, stiff, and God help you if it gets wet.

The aesthetic appeal makes it fine for drill and ceremony but for anything else I'll take modern fabrics any day of the week

That goes for almost all military dress. Most WW2 uniforms were pretty cool, but a lot of the commanders were either ugly, pudgy, manlets or all three at once, making the uniform look deformed and comical

I'm a construction worker and I think the sexualized construction worker uniform deal is so goddamn lame. Even when women do it. If you're gonna sexualize something about it sexualize the hard work/ability to solve problems in the real world with your hands, not the hard hat and the reflective vest lolol.

5mileys

I think the tradition was that in combat you wanted that leather strap to be really tight around your chin so that you didn't accidentally lose your shako in the middle of combat, but when you were just marching you wanted the strap off so that officers could shout orders more clearly and because its simply more comfortable. I may be mistaken but I'm trying to recall as best I can. It's actually more comfortable to wear the strap the way that those cadets are wearing it than to tuck it under your chin, which was never called for during any drill/ceremony.

But when it came to the comfiest uniform nothing beat the Dress Whites, that shit was like wearing pajamas but they were hands down the biggest pain in the ass to keep clean.

Sense of fit was weird during the 1930s and 1940s, even a little before and after that period. It was as though baggy and boxy were in fashion. I like the basic idea of those era's clothes and uniforms, but the fit could be quite weird. Extremely high and wide-legged trousers, boxy jackets and coats, and so on, although the hats and ties were cool for civilian wear, and the uniforms also looked cool when on more slim people (not "slim like Göring!").
