USAF service dress uniform

Not exactly breaking news, but...

From our neighbours down south:  They've decided to change the USAF service dress uniform to the "Hap Arnold" jacket...basically a blue version of the WWII USAAF dress jacket.  The competition was between that coat and the "Billy Mitchell" jacket, a blue high-collar jacket. 

Pics of both on the following link:   http://www.blackanthem.com/scitech/military_2006051902.html

Now, it'd be interesting if the USAF had opted for the Billy Mitchell instead...they'd definitely never be mistaken for airline pilots!

The "Hap Arnold" style reminds me way too much of the female's old work dress.  :P
