Having just seen the piece from Wayne Dillon (fitting in his utilities), I just couldn’t resist the temptation to brag just a bit. Attached is the photo of me at the Marine Corps ball a couple of years ago. I am a Viet Nam era veteran, and at 63 years of age, I can still fit into my dress blues! These days, I only get to wear them to the annual birthday ball and the July 4th parades. I am usually asked to carry the U.S. flag leading the parade because this uniform looks so good! But, I do have to admit that they have been tailored from the original 28 inch waist, to a 31 inch waist trousers. Still, not too bad!
