Well, selection is not up to me but I predict those boot's color will be...

BROWN!

Based my prediction in that the US Army wore Brown shoes and boots when they wore the old Pinks and Greens...

Predict? Prediction? I don’t think you know what those words mean.

It's actually quite civil, for this place and the internet in general. ::)

Sorry, but when it’s already reported that the color will be brown, anything labeled a “prediction” that it will be brown is hardly a prediction, is it?

It's not unisex...  :o
It is as close to unisex as anyone has come yet...

Yes...
The boots will indeed be brown.
The walking models have been wearing brown boots as an option.

I'm not tracking.

The buttons remain on opposite sides, thus requiring belts to go in different directions. The blouses have different pocket arrangements (males have a large breast pocket, whereas females essentially have a non-usable pocket flap). They're cut differently, so you could not (as a male) grab a female blouse off the hangar and put it on. Skirts are still optional wear. Optional tie tabs still exist. Women can choose to wear heels. Garrison caps will be worn differently.

There are literally two uniforms for each variation: a male version, and a female version. Virtually no different than how it's been all along.

No one probably cares, but in my opinion, the classiest uniform combo was the Ike Jacket with the long sleeved 1549 shade shirt and same shade trousers.

Looks too much like the coast guard's Johnny Cash uniform. Also too confusable with navy uniforms.

But it's much closer than the ASU.
I am sure males will very soon have the option to wear skirts too..

Shuman,

We know that kilts =/= skirts. So I am sure he KNOWS about kilts. He says "Men will have the option to wear skirts." So CAPLTC is adding another option. He is saying that males will also wear skirts.
