Next in a continuing line of "What Were They Thinking?" developments in men's wear: http://www.catholicsun.org/2017/08/02/k ... -uniforms/

They've gone from distinctive to disturbing, from noble to not-on-a-double-dog-dare, from classic to catastrophic. The new uniform looks like what would happen if The Book of Mormon and The Preppy Handbook had a baby, with Taps (the movie) as a surrogate mom. :nooo:

All y'all who are 4th Degree Knights, rise up against this madness! Please!

Wish I'd had photos of the latest Mass where the 4th degree were in their plumes... the sad part, these guys buy a tuxedo and then as they age many of them increase in wisdom AND in girth - but, they may not have the same level of disposable income so buying a new tux is not in the cards. They squeeze into ill fitting tuxedos and just look sorta comical and sorta sad.

That's just stoopid. I like the traditional uniform.

I like it BUT it seems more appropriate for non-liturgical things, fundraising dinners and the like.

I am sending my letter to headquarters forthwith. Or do I mean posthaste?

I don't get the hate....it's just a suit and tie with a special K of C crest, what's wrong with that?

Did you see the new one? It's a dinner jacket with a cop hat.

For starters, it looks like what I used to see whenever I drove past the Scientology-owned buildings that make up 40% of downtown Clearwater, FL (that was the percentage when I lived there 20 years ago; it's likely to be more now).

The original is classy and distinctive; it is instantly recognizable. The new "regalia" (How can they even call it that when there's nothing at all "regal" about it?) is a hot bland mess.

I remember being a boy and the knights marching in with their swords and feather plume hats and just thought that was amazing. The new suits...... nah, nothing much.

That's what I'm talking about yes, and it isn't a 'cop hat' (whatever that is) it's a beret.

Right. The old suits say, "Knight!" The new suits say ... I'm not sure. "Would you like scones with your tea?"

Father, I know you say never to read the comments, and I'm begging your forgiveness for having done so. But the commenters who claim to be Knights in their posts are pretty consistent in either stating or implying that they were blindsided by this regalia change. What say ye? Did you have any inkling this was coming? Was this brought up to the 4th Degrees at all before implementation? Or can you comment on that?

For liturgical events, that's fine, but do you really want to wear that at something like a formal dinner?

You know who it makes me think of? Ted Knight in Caddyshack, wearing Tom Cruise's beret from Taps (yes, I know it was red).

From what I read it is still up to the individual councils if they want to wear plumes and tuxedos. This is an option.

Sure. Good enough for the Masters, good enough for the Knights.
