Quote from: Chad.Rogers on November 30, 2019, 05:25:41 pmIf I'm not mistaken I've some photos at home of an AF band director who'd been Infantry in WW2 or Korea wearing this but that's about all I can think of. I'll try to remember to look when I get home.
Quote from: HandsomeWalt_USMC on December 01, 2019, 06:26:06 pmIf you read the most current AFI, the AF white tie equivalent is called Formal Dress and consists of the mess dress jacket and trousers but with the shirt, tie and cummerbund replaced with a white wing collar shirt, white bow tie and white waistcoat. One also omits the chain button closure, mimicking the open front of civilian formal tailcoats. I believe it is also an officers only combination, for reasons that escape me.

Just found a couple of sites that compare the formal uniforms of the different branches with links to their current regs.https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/tuxedo-black-tie-guide/advanced/mess-dress-military-formal/And this chart makes it pretty clear the the Air Force is without a white tie equivalent
