Marine flight suit regulations?

Yeah. Instead, wear the official SNA Riviera Liberty Uniform: Sneakers, khaki cargo shorts, untucked collared shirt (without an undershirt if you're feeling super-casual), dog tags, and aviator sunglasses.

Seriously, stop wearing that stuff out in town - you look ridiculous.
Aside from the dog tags and aviator shades, this is exactly how I am dressed right now (as usual).

Is that bad? Not that I give two shits about clothes.

At least I'm not wearing (nor do I own) jorts, a braided belt and Tevas. I thought that was the (alleged) field grade liberty uniform.

No joke - saw someone dressed like that downtown two weeks ago. He was even wearing SOCKS with his Tevas. Needless to say, his only companion was an similarly-clad male individual (sans socks with his Tevas).

If you're wearing sneakers with shorts to a bar, just go ahead and kill yourself for the betterment of man kind.

...Don't wear it out in town and you won't get hassled. Would you all stop wanking about your flightsuits?
(been boozing all day at the airshow)

so lets say I'm driving up the 15 on my way home from work one afternoon after hanging with some squadron bros... still in my flight suit and I have to take a shit. A serious no-shit shit (likely caused by a JO spiking the hinge drinks with crushed laxatives) so I'm forced to pull over to clone a MAWTS guy so I don't do it in my car. I pull my patches off my flight suit and run into an In-N-Out shitter wearing my flight suit that's "sanitized". Can some moto-jarhead give me shit for wearing my flight suit out in town, even though it's "sanitized"? I think not...I don't have my rank, unit or USMC anywhere on it...it's just a plain flight suit. What says you?

This sounds too good to be true. Besides, that sounds like a brief and appropriate stop to me.

I don't think sanitizing it really makes a difference. If it's a legitimate medical emergency crap, then you gotta do what you gotta do. Someone might give you some static, but at least you didn't poop in your car.

That's the thing. There are times when one can push the boundaries, but don't get your panties in a bunch if someone corrects you. Have a good reason, e.g. car running dry, colon running over, and most people will understand. Just making a stop in the bag because it's more convenient to you, e.g. Home Depot, and you really don't have a leg to stand on.

I like the way you think.

1. Good job, JOs.
2. +1 for the MAWTS/Mr Hankie comparison.
3. Don't "sanitize" your flight suit. Simply swap out your Yut Yut Swag for a zany VFA-666 patch and a coloful, embroidered nametag (with appropriate phony cross-country name, of course). Since nobody on active duty can ever figure out the flight suit regs du jour, John Q. Public (or, more likely, Chesty M. Motard) will be so enamored by the colorful VFA patch and LCDR Craven Morehead nametag that they won't notice the tan flight suit...or green t-shirt...or lack of shoulder rank...or dog tags...or non-force protection-friendly haircut... This technique will also buy you the time required to order a Double-Double and chocolate shake to go.

No joke.. Three or four times while in Corpus/Krock, I ended up bringing gas to Marines who did not have quite enough gas to make it to the on base gas station, or home to change because you could not buy diesel on base.

Choices:
(an enviable wardrobe)
If I had to put them in order for the first few days, I'd say

Number of the Beast (not on your list, I know)
Defenders
Puppets/Powerslave (both different but both great, too close to call)

Then they're just stupid. Has nothing to do with flight suits.
