I see the Mids in kakis during the winter ? do they have a winter working uniforms?
Working Uniforms - Known as the Uniform of the Day (UOD), this is the core uniform that midshipmen wear. This uniform varies by season. During the warm weather months, midshipmen wear Service Khakis, comprised of a short-sleeve shirt, long pants, black shoes, and a garrison or "fore and aft" cap. Officers wear the traditional "high pressure cover", so-called because of its tight fit around the head. During cold weather months, the UOD changes to Winter Blue, which includes a heavier black long-sleeve shirt and pants, black shoes, and a black garrison cap or white high-pressure hat. Topcoats include the convoy coat in winter, or the A-Jacket in spring and fall.
This is wrong. Kahki year round. Reefer coats or A-Jackets (Eisenhower Jackets) in the winter. I'm actually appreciative KP did this... the uniforms you wear at school are the same ones you wear for your ADT when you get out... 2 birds... 1 stone.
What? No more CPOs during winter with the grey tie? Of course we had to wear the high pressure hat year round, khaki with the khakis and white with the CPOs, dress blues, whites and formal whites and blues. . . Not sure I ever wore my khakis after graduation. . . pretty standard for an engineer.
Black replaced the grey tie decades ago. Sad to see the HY uniform go by the wayside, as much as they were a pain I always thought they looked sharp.
khakis every day of the week for restriction musters.
