I can never get past how absurd blousing of dress pants looks, especially so now that it's no longer required for CADPAT.
I really wish that we'd gone with Khaki for the NCD replacement. Something like this IMHO looks a lot better than, and of course will be far more comfortable in hotter climates, than the all-black we settled upon.

And they've even thought of having different uniforms for inmates... because you might get confused about who's in more trouble when you're all 'in the Brig'
Navy Adds Color Coding to Prisoner Uniforms to Avoid Brig Mix-Ups

Navy Personnel Command has a new uniform
for prisoners at all ashore correctional facilities, and it's uni-service.
Wearing of the new uniform will be mandatory starting May 1 for all prisoners in pre-trial and post-trial confinement at Military Correctional Facilities (MCFs) run by the Navy
, regardless of the prisoner's service affiliation, the Navy said in a news release last week.
The new standardized prison uniform (SPU) also will likely save the Navy money, the release states. The costs associated with buying and maintaining service uniforms for a prisoner become a tremendous and unnecessary fiscal burden to the Navy and the taxpayer, the service said.
The new uniform will come in two colors, dependent on the prisoner's legal status, the release states. Those in pre-trial confinement will get a chocolate-brown uniform, and those in post-trial confinement will get a tan uniform.
Currently, prisoners at Navy MCFs wear their service utility uniforms, in line with the Navy's theory that doing so helps maintain discipline and aids in rehabilitation.
