    Plebes haven't been issued theirs but we will have to wear them for a formal event at CFT this Summer so sometime near the end of Plebe year I am guessing.

    Why are there India Whites instead of just wearing the full dress with white pants like they do in the graduation pictures?

    I don't know the history of India Whites but I think they are cooler than full dress with white pants. You won't wear them much since it is a summer uniform. I can only think of one occasion so far that my son has worn his and that was Camp Illumination at the end of Buckner.

    Thanks AF. I guess he'll wear them one more time on Ring Weekend since he already did 2nd detail of Beast last summer. :smile:

    Don't know if it will change, but the Firsties wore India Whites at the Friday night banquet before graduation in 2009.

    Alas, when I was a cadet we didn't have India Whites. I agree they look sharp. Had to settle and get Army Whites to wear to my wedding.
