A change to the Marine Corps' uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street.

Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a "unisex" look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines' iconic caps – known as "covers" — with a new version that some have derided as so "girly" that they would make the French blush.

I been jiggling the screws on my Girlydar, but I still ain't getting a reading. I don't think much of either haberdasherical iteration.

Ah Golem.... areyou stiring things up to get a reaction? Smile

A few point of note....

And the particular design is a men's design.... what ever that is...

Quote:
Members of the Marine Corps Uniform Board working this issue do not seem to support the switch to a unisex cap. According to a copy of the survey obtained by ABC News none of the working group members supported the idea of a universal cover.
The board will meet next Tuesday and use the results of the survey to help them decide if a change is necessary. Whatever recommendation they make will then have to be approved by Gen. James Amos, the Marine Corps Commandant.
The proposed smaller unisex hat is known as the “Dan Daly” hat and would be a throwback to the type of hat used prior to 1922. Daly was a two- time Medal of Honor recipient who served in the Marine Corps near the end of the 19th century and early part of the 20th Century. Photos of Daly show him wearing the smaller thinner cap of the time period which resembled the Kepi style hat worn by the French military.
abc news

Here is a link to kepi style hats... which thie girly boys of the civl war wore wiki images

And we know the shennanigans those boys got up to in the trenches... all duded up in their girly hats....

But beyond all of that.... and the fact that no decision has been made... I really wonder if there is a pparticualr reason to lay this on Obama.... do you really think this has landed on his desk? or that he has suggested to the pentagon that they should look into getting a new style of hat? Do you really think that? Or are we just having some fun?

French hats! Might as well just change the Marine Corps banner into a white flag. Are we supposed to be aspiring to emulate those surrender monkeys now?

There were some purty good hats in that collection, Ardy. Maybe ten, or so.
