The BLUF Dress code:
"Breeches: What are breeches? As far as BLUF is concerned, breeches are trousers with 'balloons' on the thighs, as seen in pictures from Tom of Finland. They may be made of leather or fabric.
both leather and fabric breeches are ok. So, a pair of fabric motorcycle or military breeches as part of a complete fabric uniform is ok.
Leather Uniform: a full leather uniform is the preferred clothing for most BLUF members. That is tall boots, leather trousers (often breeches), with a leather shirt, tie, Sam Browne belt, gloves, cap and jacket.
Police-style motorcycle outfits, including replicas, are ok."
