We have new shorts? Are these the quasi-swim trunks with the black liner?For the Marine shorts, the new regulation shorts have a horrible liner that immediately becomes a thong during any actual physical activity. The new olive Underarmor shorts, which technically aren't uniform, but are virtually indistinguishable, actually work fine.

RMKS/1. THIS NAVADMIN AUTHORIZES THE WEARING OF MINIMALIST FOOTWEAR WITH THE
NAVY PHYSICAL TRAINING UNIFORM
Here is the whole message:
The Navy allows PT gear in the commissary but not flight suits? Seriously?Somewhere, a CMC's head just exploded.
And I'm cool with that. Fat bastards in PT gear at commissary telling me it's unprofessional to wear my flight suit when they are in that abortion of a uniform or NWUs.
I'm pretty much able to concentration on the task at hand when flying. I don't need to change clothes.
Flightsuits are allowed throughout base and all base facilities. Even if the commissary or NEX isn't on the base proper (a la Oceana or NS Norfolk), it's still authorized in those facilities. The Navy does allow PT gear too I believe. The only exception I've seen to this was at NSA Bahrain where sweaty PT gear was prohibited outside of the gym.The Navy allows PT gear in the commissary but not flight suits? Seriously?
The attitude from that article, although pretty foreign to our generation, isn't that old. My DHs would tell stories about how they used to have to stand SDO in a dress uniform and were only allowed to wear flightsuits when they were flying. It was expected that after you landed you changed back in to the uniform of the day to continue your business.I'm pretty much able to concentration on the task at hand when flying.
