Just so I can say it, last night at the ball was the first time I wore all the 'stuff' that goes on my dress uniform. I typically just wear the plain jacket, with the Commodore piping on the sleeve.

As much as it pains me to use a Yankee as a role model, I offer the following quote about Ulysses S. Grant:

"Following his promotion at Chattanooga, Grant routinely wore "the uniform of a private with the straps of a lieutenant-general. In his dress, as in his dealings with subordinates, Grant was unpretentious."

So there you go, and now you know.

(besides, that stuff is sniper bait :P)
