I can only hope that all LEO agency's powers that be are only thinking of their uniformed officers uniforms and equipment in the highest regard for effectiveness, officer safety, comfort, tactical issues, officer presence and so on. If your uniform causes you to not be able to perform your duties to the highest levels of safety and effectiveness, it is highly important to address these issues.
If your uniform is too dressy or too restrictive, keeping you from changing a flat tire, wrestling with a scumbag, trekking off through mud and/or thick stickery brush, crawling around in the back of a semi-trailer during an inspection, etc., start thinking of a new uniform. As you know, that's what we do on a regular basis on patrol. I love traditional looking dress uniforms, but common sense and practicality needs to be taken in to account.
