I've always had an eye for fashion, so it was only natural that I would not really like wearing uniforms. I do think it is a good idea to jazz up the uniform a bit with a nice belt or even a bold scarf. You'd be surprised how much a pair of really good quality gloves can add to the wardrobe. I also like to wear colorful socks too, as that adds alot to the boring uniform. You can forget about the company issued sweaters or <gasp> sweater vests too. LOL They are just way too boring for words.

Anyway, the best dressed pilots by far are the jetBlue pilots. Very nice uniforms. Nice style, very trendy and effective.

I also like the Delta uniform with the elegant double breasted jacket. Although not as nice as jetBlue, it is a nice touch.

CAL is definitely at the bottom with the worst uniform. The big gut, white socks and black velcro tennis shoes that all the CAL guys wear really don't help much either. LOL

I know some might disagree with my opinions, but hey, we can't all have fashion sense. LOL

i'd like to go back to the old days when the stewardess were female(not transexual), hot and dressed like it. not to mention we should just send all the ladies to the back, thats where they belong anyway. also mandatory retirement by age 25 for the ladies, other disqualifications pregnancy, getting married and the dreaded late 20s ass explosion.

I saw a Lufthansa crew in Detroit metro...class act, pilots looked like athletes, FA's looked like super models

I pay more attention to the FA's attire; not the pilots. Long legs in pantyhose...you know, that kind of thing.

FA's are no longer worth staring at, well, maybe a handful are. I scope at the hotties walking around the terminal.

Best dressed is simple, clean, unadorned, and ironed. Extra emphasis on clean and ironed.

Yes, and Im a guy!! What's your point? This thread is GAY!!!!!!!!!
Relax... Your first post made it seem like you thought the OP was gay. Just trying to put the post into gender context, but perhaps the OP was tryin to flame.

Maybe you're the guy with a clip-on tie and the ring-around-the-collar wrinkled shirt hanging out after the first leg, so PAY ATTENTION! ;)

The best dressed pilots are those who take care of their uniforms. Military background helps and very much noticeable.

The starting point - design and quality of the uniform - help too. Delta's is the best by far.

pocono's all flame. and you guys bite way too much

I think we should have more bling so the shorter among us aren't confused w/ the flight attendants-- wings- maybe extra stripes for years of service to industry and others for company- other stripes for hours flown- a bar on our chest for every type rating-- sounds gay- but the public values experience- maybe if the public could actually see the difference between a pilot out of college and a 20 year veteran, they'd put pressure on the outsourcing.

(yeah- i'll repeat that it's gay-- but if we could do it discretely enough and it helps our leverage....)

oh-- good shoes, shined up before every trip-- new shirts- iron w/ starch- they make the travel cans so you can bring it along... it's really not hard- hang up your pants- and dont' get them shiny over-ironing them- just get the wrinkles out from behind the knees and keep the crease that the dry cleaner put in.

and i still want patches for the leather jackets(!)

If you want to talk flight attendants, Virgin Atlantic by far are not only the best looking-- but UNIFORM. Everyone of them wears exactly the same thing, down to the shoes, luggage and purses too. Having an appearance standard, including weight, helps too. It's too bad we can't discriminate like that, maybe if we did-- the flight attendant profession wouldn't look like by wife's scrapbook club meetings... Meanwhile, although our flight attendants are among the best in service, I get dismayed when I see not one of them looking like the next-- down to the scarves and own winter coats they bring with them when they fly, not to mention the Obama pins they wear on their chest too...

No, he's not.
Pocono is also quite upset that male 756 first officer mentioned on the other ethics thread gave him anal herpes. That combined with getting turned down at Continental still has the bitterness leaching out.
