    It's hard to take someone seriously that is wearing a white patent leather gunbelt. ;)
     
  3. Wear white if you're not a ...?


    Get your point but recall the Leibstandarte wore white leather gear in their prewar 'asphalt soldier' days. Not patent leather though.

    Not when they have the accompanying gun, it isn't.

    Hi, They look good, and I'm sure that they're well made, BUT having the USAF buy uniforms from a "costume company" somehow cheapens things.

    Per the Italians above, if you don't' get a Lamborghini, you get a golf cart. Boy that's a let down.

    1. Spanish-American war US; love the campaign hat

    2. Boer War British

    3. WWII-Current US Marines dress blues. There is nothing more dashing than the marine dress blues

    My 2 cents...

    200mph Ticket

    Something tells me your not going to notice the gun belt after being pulled over by a Lamborghini Gallardo! Now if you could just get a ticket for doing 200mph at the time, you would have bragging rights for the rest of you life!

    Of course I am going with my USMC Dress Blues. Either my WWII ones or my moderns. The moderns have enchanted the natives of three continents so yea. But I remember at Williamsport last year, there was an Italian Officer who had a spectacular black silk braid on black velvet Italian mess dress complete with a monocle and skinny black trousers. Sharp, understated yet elegant. USMC Officers Mess Dress is really sharp too, especially with the cover worn and boat cloak in inclement weather!

    The US Army's inter-war bloused khaki uniform, worn only in tropical zones, is pretty sharp.
    Unlike the WW2-and-later era tropical blouse, it was worn with a belt.

    Pvt. Harry Kershaw, Signal Corps, Schofield Barracks, Territory of Hawaii, 1927.
    Like many enlistees between the wars, Harry was foreign born, from Manchester, England.
    He later was commissioned and served in both WW2 and Korea, retiring in 1953.
     
  14. Yeah, that was sharp!
     
  15. Men love a girl in uniform..


    I have changed my mind. This is my favorite uniform too.

    I've always liked the Patrol Dress of the Canadian Army. My grandfather (it's now hanging at an aunt's house) used to have a portrait of him wearing the whole kit, including cape. He hung it over the fireplace.

    Hi Mark

    It is especially funny when you know that Werner Klemperer (Klink), John Banner (Schultz), Howard Caine, and Leon Askin (General Burkhalter) were all Jewish. Werner came over to escape the Nazi's in 1935.

    In fact it is. Hogan's Heroes is subject to a number of criticisms, but the fact that it involved survivors like Robert Clary poking fun at the ghastly situation seems like a triumph of humanity to me.
