Throwback Thursday // The Uniform
By: Marie Force, Delta Archives, Atlanta
Here’s Delta’s longest-lived uniform – a tailored suit of tropical wool in navy blue. Like sending a kid off to college, we said “goodbye” to this look after 18 years of great memories!
Fun Facts on Delta’s Notorious Uniform
• It was the first Delta uniform to include maternity pieces.
• New accessories frequently updated the uniform, including a special scarf and tie celebrating Delta as the Official Airline for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games.
• The original issue of this uniform collection also included some gray pieces, but after a time, navy was the preference.
