    You can probably find more in the Costume Tropes index.

    I took everyone from the Costume Tropes index that said 'uniform' and I only know of the one that doesn't have it in it's title but that's what it's about (old colors being used instead).

    Thanks for the hat. Am I missing anything?

    Thank you. Minimum number of suggested tropes is eight. I have twelve so far counting Good Looking Privates. A lot of indexes repeatedly mention the subject. If anyone knows of any that I'm missing, especially ones that don't mention the subject specifically, please let me know. Should the description be changed from how it is?

    Where'd the hat go?

    I'm going to launch this tomorrow if no one has anything else to say.

    With only one hat? I'd wait. It's potentially a useful index, but I think it needs more tropes that do not have the word "uniform" as part of the name. Otherwise it's really just a search generated index, and not that useful, actually. Somebody mentioned this as a rule in one discussion here in ykttw, but I cannot find where. Just saying.

    Search Generated Index says, "Note that indexes based on trope snowclones are often allowed, even if only under the spirit of Just for Fun. But they should contain a minimum number of tropes, which is somewhere around eight."

    Fourteen tropes, including ones without the word, certainly meet the minimum. If anyone knows of more tropes to add that would be great.

    It must have 5 hats in order to launch.

    Five hats to launch is a suggestion, not a requirement.

    Thanks. I've added some military examples that I found.

    How about "I see by your outfit..." for a trope name? From the actual song - "Laredo" ? or the Smothers Bros take off: "I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy, you see by my outfit that I'm a cowboy, too. We see by our outfits that we are both cowboys. If you get an outfit, you can be a cowboy, too."

    ^^ In my opinion it would suffer badly from Trope Namer Syndrome. Moreover this is for uniforms, mostly, and there are other Costume Tropes.

    Thanks for the hats and the tropes! This looks ready to launch unless anyone else has anything to add.

Three days must pass before this YKTTW is Launchworthy or Discardable
