I have a Flying Cross brand shirt (Distinguished, I think, the line is) that is an exact duplicate of the USAF blues shirt (mitred pocket corners, etc) but white. Then, I got a new blues shirt. Whoops, its a Flying Cross as well! :)

They make good stuff.

It wouldn't be a uniform thread otherwise, would it?

Blazer != Service Coat.

Works well enough for me.

Works != Same. Duh.

You're right, they aren't the same. They are, however, equivalent.

Sure are. Doesn't put them on the same level no matter what though. In fact, even if I never again get back in the H/W Standards, I'll never wear the getup. If that's what an event would require, then I guess I wouldn't be going. Not wasting my money on an ugly blazer and pocket slide.

The pin on crest is the most expensive part of my blazer which I got at Goodwill.

You sir, posted the most #winning thing in this thread. (My goodwill blazer outgrew me. As did two of my suits which are headed that way today)

Facts are facts.

There is no way that the "aviator" uniform is going to have any changes to it, for several reasons:

1. Too many people like it because it's cheap and non-standardised.  There are very, very few hard-and-fast standards on how it must be worn.

2. CAP higher-ups are scared of the colour blue, except for the so-dark-it's-almost-black for the blazer.

3. Too many people feel "it ain't broke don't fix it."

4. Too many people like the (fiction) that one does not have to observe C&C's in this order of dress.

5. I would say a plurality (not a majority) of CAP Senior Members do not want to look military.

6. Too many people simply dislike change, in whatever form.

So, it's nice to dream about khaki/silvertans, etc., but the hard facts remain the hard facts.

We had our chance at a nice, good-looking uniform (CSU) that was popular with a large segment of the membership, and CAP, in it's infinite wisdom, smacked our collective patties and said "no, you cannot have that, if you cannot wear the AF uniform, you vill wear ze grey/white/blazer und you vill like it, because you have no alternative."

At one time I had a complete uniform proposal to supplement/supplant the G/W kit ready to send up the chain.

I scrapped it, as it would be a useless waste of energy.

Still have it filed away somewhere for simple post-mortem analysis? I'd be curious to read over it just because.

I honestly am of the opinion that we look like a bunch of Somali Pirates in these woodland BDUs we now wear, but that is just me.

Question: If the DoD has a problem with us having digitalized patterns, why does JROTC have them? They don't do any activities that require them to wear the ABU, ACU, MARPAT, and NWU outside of Raider/PF Competitions, and it would be more appropriate for us to have them (ABU) because of our close connection to the USAF, despite what anyone says. - Nick
