The SD we had (Feb. 1st in rouge 'business') wore grey pants and a severely wrinkled white shirt. No jacket, no tie just a name bar. The FA had a plain grey 'clingy' dress with a red scarf. Hardly uniforms but at least the dorky hats are gone. Leisure airline or not the staff could still look professional. That being said I must say the two we had were professional in their delivery of service.

I thought it looked good - very professional, yet eye-catching with the flash of red.
This does sound very sharp and professional actually. I hope that is the look they are going for.

The women's jackets look awful. They seem designed to give giant 80s shoulderpad effect and no neck to the majority of female employees -- i.e. anyone who isn't 6 feet tall and model-thin. The men's uniforms look pretty sharp, mind you.

+1, they don't look comfortable for the women FAs. I hope it's a better fabric than currently.

Most men have no idea what we women go through. At least this uniform seems to have a pant option as well as sensibly flat shoes for women. The days when female flight attendants could only wear short skirts and high heels -- because their status as eye candy was more important than their health or safety -- are thankfully long gone. (Except, that they're really, really not.)

I thought those were models until I recognized John.

The concierge uniform doesn't seem to be much different, but the tie looks less silvery and more black (though it's not the greatest photo).

So in other words, completely in fashion. You may or may not like the Jkt style, but it is fashionable.

Anything beats the dorky hats.

I love these uniforms, very matronly.

That's very unfortunate, and I would like to fly Skymark

There are so many other occupations out there where you can chose what you want to wear, why stick to the air.

I was thinking of the comfort of the agents, not of the fashion implications.

So gender discrimination is okay as long as it's only in some industries?

The cut and fabric has more to do with comfort than the style.
