U.S. Navy Uniforms, Little Has Changed Over the Years
Posted January 27, 2009on:
Little is known about U.S. Navy uniforms compared to other military uniforms. Some might even say they are mythical because most people think they are older than what they really are.
Most controversy surrounding the U.S. Navy uniforms comes from the enlisted men’s bell bottomed trousers which used to contain eleven buttons on the flap and then were redesigned sometime in the 1990s and added two more buttons for account of 13 total buttons to represent the original 13 colonies. Many of the recruiters were never told of the original eleven button bellbottoms and only told the story of the 13 buttons that represents the original colonies.
