For a corps that used to set the standard....these seem pretty off the rack.

Yeah, not the most innovative compared to the rest of the activity. But they sure will work better with the music and theme than the 1860s cavalry unis ever could. And, perhaps more important to the Troopers as an organization that wants to remain relevant, they are a break from their own look for the past 60+ years, which is an important statement to members, current and potential. 

 

. . . though,. actually, their 2019 look will be something of a palette cleanser among all the leather and gladiator outfits that will be on the field this year.

I don't disagree with any statements so far.  I just wish they had really "gone for it".

While I actually really like the new look, I can see the Troopers falling into the same scenario that Madison is in - they go for it really hard for a year or two, find mixed success but ultimately fall backwards, and then in a year or two, we'll see a "return to the tradition that made us who we are" or some slight variation on that.

Kinda funny that, for all the hand-wringing us old-timers have done over the years about Troop changing their visual image, here we are contemplating whether this complete revamp goes far enough. I get where you're coming from; I too would have welcomed even more daring. But the space aesthetic has always been clean and spare, so more adornment might have worked against that idea. Perhaps the designers also are considering that, sure, it all looks a bit plain on 3 or 4 people, but when you multiply the look by 150, then less becomes more.
