New Unis

I've been getting a little slack from SOME people for not posting enough, but understand I'm gone a lot! AND my internet is going through menopause so I never know when it'll be working or not.

Anyway, as I have mentioned, we have gotten new uniforms. The pants I love, obviously, since they don't double as a bra and actually sit lower down on the waist. The Jacket, not so great since it has major shoulder pads and I'm not really keen on looking like a linebacker. The shirts, I'm enjoying, since they are a little more exciting than plain white. They are a little too busy when worn on their own, but nice when under the vest.

So I'm asking you, if you've seen them, what do you think? I just had to fill out a survey about them giving feedback etc. and I wrote that I would like the option of having a skirt. Normally, I wouldn't be so excited about a skirt, but I think they look really nice and official... and when looking at "big red"'s (as they say in the industry when trying not to name names) new uniforms, their skirts look great. There was an article in the Herald about our new uniforms, saying they're "glitzy" or something like that, but I've heard from some they look stupid. Any thoughts? I won't be offended, since I'm normally the first to diss my own uniform.

I just thought I'd ask. A little convo starter. If you haven't seen them, well you can just pretend.

I'm flying WJ next week and I'll take a look and let you know. If there's one thing I'm good at it's looking at women.

I don't remember much about the old uniforms...but now that I have finally seen you in the new one, it could be much worse. The only problem you might have with a skirt is that you would have to think more about your shoe choice. The ones you wear now might look a little to clunky and going with a more "delicate" shoe, may not be as comfortable.

I haven't seen them so I don't have an opinion yet. If I happen to get a glance at these new unis I will let you know what I think. Maybe you should wear it over sometime.

Even though I just flew four times in the past two weeks I didn't see any WestJet people. The CanJet ladies looked pretty good though. At least there was nothing silly about their outfits. Their planes on the other hand were pretty bad. The best uniforms I saw were Aeroflot.

Check out uniformfreaks.com for some inspiration. BTW - on that site the Aeroflot uniforms are out-of-date.
