USO Dress Uniform

The Dress Uniform is the outfit worn for social, or official functions. Like that of the Sky Guard Standard Flight Suit, it is meant to be a combination of style and functionality. It is made in the USO and available to only U.S.O. personnel.

History

This uniform was designed by Jack Pine in YE 39. It was not finalized and issued out to USO personnel until several months later.

Design

The coat is adorned with the persons rank, and name on the right breast. While the cap features the USO emblem and the uniform's buttons are tungsten with a blue finish. Finally the when on a starship, or space installation, the user wears an environmentally sealed body suit similar to that of the flight suit made from carbon nano-tubes that provide good small arms protection whilst remaining lightweight. The outer layer is composed of microscopic scales of Graphene for additional protection, but does not have the additional features other than a life support unit found attached to be back of the waist. It can be in the persons flight suit colors (if applicable), or a custom color set.

Components

The uniform consists of a military dress coat, dress shirt, slacks, boots, and cap.

Cap
