I want a flowy drapey shiny satin tunic with a big pointy collar accessorized with a fancy wide belt ala 1970’s DCI and I want it now! None of this “feminine” stuff!

LMAO.....And don't forget all those masculine feathers on top of a hat, shiny buttons, sequin sashes and wraps. Now that was manly...lol

I do not believe you. And if this is somehow true, the activity doesn't need sexist PoS's like these people. 

i know some kids who mock the current trends..but they want to march so they wear it.

 

then again my era mocked what we wore also

 I never ever mocked the Madison Scouts uniform. Heck, I joined the corps because of the uni and because the scouts were so damm cool.

Caution...non PC post here...

The current costume trend towards sequined leotards and bodysuits hurts drum corps recruitment. I have talked with several young musicians who have said "I wouldn't be caught dead wearing a goofy girly costume like that". I really think the activity is limiting its potential recruits. I would love to see the drum corps activity do what the NFL & MLB do with using throwback uniforms. Obviously it wouldn't make financial sense for a corps to have a throwback uni for just 1 show, so make it for the entire season. Each corps can use a throwback uniform. I wonder what the reaction would be? I am guessing (hoping) that the response would reinvigorate the activity and bolster recruiting.

Overall, a shot of testosterone into Drum Corps wouldn’t hurt from my point of view.

And I always thought Madison’s uniforms were very cool.

No one mocked the superman suit. The garbage that they wore in recent years? Absolutely.
