Re: New Uniforms for AS

After looking at it more closely, not sure I like the pilot pieces. Without the hats, it's almost hard to tell they're pilots and the brown leather jacket doesn't seem to fit.

Something about seeing stripes just seems like something timeless that should be more prominent.

Any further growth is now tied to them getting T9, which can't be done until the Eagle's Nest ope...
