PLA Gets Metrosexual Makeover

China military getting trendier uniforms
SHANGHAI, China - China is rolling out sleeker uniforms for its 2.3 million-member military, prompted by a bigger budget and growing involvement in U.N. peacekeeping, state media said Monday.

The uniform of the People's Liberation Army — plain, baggy green with red and gold insignia — had changed little in more than two decades since China opened up its economy and relaxed social controls.

The new uniforms will be cut closer for a snappier appearance and include casual and dress styles, along with battle fatigues.
