    I don't know. I feel like I personally like the old ACU's. Anyone else feel like that? I feel like when I see the new ones, for a split second, I think I'm looking at Marines. No disrespect meant or anything. Maybe I'm biased because I've grown up seeing the "old" ACU's. What do you think?

    I really like the new army uniforms. For so long they were a distant 4th place. Now I like them the best. I like the dark jackets with the blue pants and yellow stripe. Very sharp.

    Are you talking about the dress uniforms or the new ACUS's?

    Blue army service uniforms. I'm still not fond of the green uniforms.

    The OCP pattern (with variations) has been worn for years and looks nothing like what Marines wear.

    Plus the old ACUs make finding Waldo in the middle of the woods or desert really easy.

    I told my son to choose his branch based on the uniform. Navy/Marines definitely have the sharpest uniforms but, alas, he chose Army. He rocks it, though. ;)

    Yeah, multi-cam variants just work better to hide people
    ACUs and ABUs (AF) only seem to hide people in office cubicles, gravel pits, and floral-print couches.
