An Officer & A Gentleman
 
A man in a uniform at dinner, sets my heart aflutter..A man in a kilt looks amazing too..How do you feel?

Men, if you wear a kilt, were you self consious the first time? Ahh...tell us...What do you carry in that little bag?

I love seeing men in their dress blues. There was a guy on my ship that dressed for formal night. *dreamy sigh*

I must agree.......nothing is better than a man in uniform. I could just sit and stare all night long.

Kilt on the other hand.......very few men can pull off one of these, but if they can, they look magnificent!

i defintaley agree that there is just "something" about a man in a dress uniform that makes a lot of ladies go aahhh. Come on now admit it, one of the main reason that you watched JAG was to see "Harm" in his dress uniform :wink:
If a man has great legs and a good physique, kilts are wonderful.
as Zzzy Topp put it " girls go crazy for a sharp dressed man"

This subject is dear to my heart. I married a man in uniform. I never got tired of him wearing it. Now 24 years of military, I asked my hubby about wearing his dress blues, and he looked at me like I had said let's sleep in the muster station. LOL

Men in uniforms . . . yes, yes, yes! Men in tuxes . . . yes, yes, yes! Men in kilts . . . only if they're Sean Connery!

Trip,

I think that both look quite sharp.

Of course, a gentleman does not wear a uniform unless legitimately entitled to do so by virtue of membership in the corresponding service or other organization. Also, a gentleman does not wear a kilt unless he is legitimately entitled to wear the tartan.

Dress whites actually look even sharper -- but which service was the guy that you saw?

But the proper uniform for formal evenings on a cruise ship is, of course, the "mess dress" or "dinner dress jacket" ("black tie") uniform that's proper to the season....

You can make almost anybody look good in a dress uniform. And, of yeh, the kilt thing is great! On our Baltic Capitals cruise we had such a great variety of uniforms (U.S., Britain, Australia) and several kilts.

My son in law is Navy and wore those gorgeous dress whites at their wedding. Gosh, what a sight. And can we even talk about Marines with those sabres, or would that melt down the net?

LisaK May 10th, 2006 02:12 PM

my, my oh they just set my heart all a flutter!

Rev22:17 May 10th, 2006 09:26 PM

Magnolia Blossom,

You're right. The naval officers' dress white uniform is positively the sharpest uniform of all.

And can we even talk about Marines with those sabres, or would that melt down the net?

Sure, we can. Their uniforms beat anything that the Army and the Air Force have, by far. They can't quite hold a candle to the naval officers' dress whites, though!

That said, the proper uniform for the "formal" eveings on a cruise is either the Dinner Dress Blue Jacket uniform or the Dinner Dress White Jacket uniform, as appropriate to the season, for a naval officer or the Evening Dress B unform for a Marine officer. Junior officers who do not posess those uniforms may substute the Dinner Dress Blue or Dinner Dress White uniform (Navy) or either the Blue Dress A or Blue-White Dress A uniform (Marine Corps), again as appropriate to the season.

I saw my first military uniform over 24 years ago. Very impressed, but you know what? It's the not the uniform, but what is inside that uniform. Give me what's inside any day.

My husband packed his full highland dress outfit along with hose(heavy socks) on one of our caribbean cruises .He almost expired from the heat .he had many nice comments from passengers and crew until an asian deck hand stopped him and said " Aah very good German!" that made our night. he now only packs his tux and sometimes wears a tartan waist coat.
