I just saw some for the first time at an Army Ball this weekend. The Mess Uniform jackets came off during the dancing and the shirts underneath were quite stylish! They looked unique but were the in the regulations? What is your opinion on these? Do you own and wear one? Are there regulations for these personalized uniform shirts ?

I see no issue with "party shirts" and in fact think it adds to the morale at a military ball, especially if it is mandatory to attend.

There are so many events in the military that inherently take away from fun and esprit de corp these days. I am all in favor of anything that will bring back some fun into the ranks, even if only for a moment. The last military ball I attended, my company commander had a "party shirt" on, an everyone, to include myself liked it. I had never seen one before, but the whole vibe changed in the room once he went out on the dance floor and set the tone. As far as regulations go, I am not so sure it fits the criteria... However, it seems like an issue that could be addressed at higher echelons with relative ease. Maybe, at commander discretion?

I play a lot of Military Balls and I've seen my share of coolness. The senior NCOs of the Coasties in Mobile Alabama wore kilts. KILTS!!! I want to wear a kilt with my Dress coat!

Air kilt
Kilts are the greatest garment ever created for men. Be careful when wielding the power of the kilt. You will look start looking down upon your trousered colleagues as you suck the awesomeness out of the room into your soul.
