Although it happened long after I separated, I think it was a good thing that the Navy gave their enlisted some respectable uniforms to wear.

The working uniform was one of my biggest complaints when in. It was a prison-dungaree uniform and made us look like clowns, and I'm happy they commissioned some uniforms that sailors can be proud to wear.

For work-details that are greasy and grimy, coveralls should be worn..

I couldn't agree more. Well said! The NWU is a FAR better uniform than the dungarees.
