For those who care, the working uniform that the US Navy has been wearing from shortly after the First World War now has a death date. This upcoming January, the navy will begin to phase out the old uniform for a new design: blue-based digital camo.

So we will be going from this. navy-12.jpg

To this: image022.jpg

The new uniform, although seemingly stupid in concept, will have more pockets, and fit better than the old ones.

Note: Dress whites will also be retrofied with blue piping, the type found on WWII era whites.

Couldn't they just make that uniform without camo though? I know when I've spoken to you about it, you do say its a lot more comfortable and such, but jeez.... Militaries have to hold onto tradition, its part of their history....

Is the camo intended to make sailors actually harder to spot/rescue if they fall overboard?

I mean, what is exactly the point of giving camouflage to people on board of ships anyway?

The second photo hurts my eyes. :(

And I don't really understand the need for camo on a work uniform? Perhaps under specific conditions but during a routine workingday onboard a ship I can't see the need for it (the ship is most certainly spotted before any human being is so you might just aswell walk around in bright orange suits =p ). The workunfiforms here are darkblue as far as I know (the only uniform I have seen laying around the house while my brother returned from his ship was darkblue stuff).

Wait wait wait! I get it now...its a new navy tactic, You make everybody on the ship invisible, the enemy thinks its a ghost ship, they board, and you ambush...BRILLIANT!

Next thing you know is they paint the ships in that digital camo, would make the damn thing nearly invisible to the naked eye.
