Default Proper attire?

I have recently noticed that Combat Fliers wear Hard Hats, and it makes me wonder...

Seeing as how the rest of their attire is comprised of shorts and a T-Shirt, a hard hat would do little to protect you if you were hit by a plane. Therefore, the hard hat must simply be worn to signify the fact that they are Combat Fliers.

Then I got to thinking...

Since there are many different aspects of the R/C hobby, maybe we should ALL wear some article of clothing to signify which field we participate in.

For example... The guys that fly 1/2a could wear a hat like this:




While the giant scale fliers could wear...



Maybe Pylon fliers would like something that looks fast!



While the Sport flier would prefer a more casual look...



The Jet heads would need something with a turbine...

Actually, the hard hats that are worn are probably meant for picking up the pieces after an accident. I guess I could punch two holes for my eyes in a garbage bag so I will be set.

Great thread, but I think the sport flyer outfit might cause problems. I would hate to get my pointy boots caught in the prop. LOL

Mike, this time you out did yourself. Could you make these pictures and captions up in a printable format so I can hang it in our club house? Absolutely brilliant!
