Most countries have military uniforms that are stately, that evoke feelings of honor and glory, or that feature something high-tech, developed for highly successful battlefield tactics. But what we”re presenting today are…not anything like that.
These are dress uniforms, which don”t have to worry about being camouflaged, functional, or even comfortable. They”re ornate and steeped in history and culture, that”s for sure, but they”re also a little bit silly.
And that”s why we love them.
1. The Swiss Guard dress uniform.
2. The Right Honourable Yeoman Warders
3. The Yeomen of the Guard
4. Greek Parade Dress
7. North Korea”s female uniforms
Maybe there”s something silly about all military dress uniforms, many of which hearken back to times past regardless of current relevancy. Or maybe the connection to the past is what these dress uniforms are all about, the lineage of soldiers through history. Do you think they should stay as they are, or do you think they might need an update?
