I love Mess Dress. That's my favorite. I wish we had khaki uniforms like the Navy/Corp and the old WWII movies. Love the forest green wool and khaki shirts.

I like the newer look; however I've always end loved the fact that that the Army was known for "Army Green". I have mixed opinions but I've always loved tradition.

Mess Dress is the best looking uniform we currently wear.

I think the ASU is a much sharper uniform. Not a big fan of the Class B version though, the white shirt just doesn't do it for me. I feel like a waiter.

Although I don't know the exact reason for the change I am assuming a couple things. First, the dark blue coat and light blue pants was one of the first standard uniforms that the modernish Army wore (the coat was usually rolled and stored during marches/rides so it didn't fade in color like the trousers), so there is tradition. Second, I think it had a recruiting strategy inline with the Marine Corps, you would be surprised how many kids join the Marines because the uniform looks so cool. Finally, it makes sense because now everyone is basically in the same uniform at formal functions.

This makes sense. Thanks! I agree strongly with the marine corp reference. My own father tried to persuade me to join the marines for that very reasons. Yet, the Army was always in my heart.

I have yet to have the honor of serving in our Army (Not old enough yet), but I come from a military family and I actually collect "militaria" (I like the story and history of each piece, and I feel it is important to preserve for future generations). Anyway, I guess I'll throw my opinion. First, while it does connect to the Army's past, I feel like nowadays blue is more connected to the other branches. If I'm thinking Army, I'm thinking green or khaki. Second, they should have left the patches and DUIs (Aren't DUIs only optional now?). I liked being able to look at a soldier and recognize the unit.
