Just out of curiosity, I found the copy of midregs posted on the USNA website. When I got to the uniform regulations section, I came across this one peculiar entry: COMDTMIDNINST 5400.6Q 4 NOV 13 Chapter 4.8-Physical Appearance and Uniforms Section 2.G.-"Midshipmen may not, at any time, wear a yellow sweater bearing a black N" Is there a good story behind this? I know the background of the infamous "Black N*" in that it's totally unofficial and only awarded by a mid's classmates for misconduct above and beyond the call to mischief. But is that the reason it's specifically prohibited as per MIDREGS? Is yellow specifically prohibited because yellow and black are AWP's colors?
