Carrier hopes for cool breeze

Olympia Carrier Dean Peterson says that his prototype uniform is "like a cool breeze blowing through the house."

He wants the kilt to be an option for male letter carriers.

According to the Seattle Times, Peterson just "wants to be comfortable." He complains about chaffing from normal postal uniform pants.

Personally, I like the idea. Back in my day, we wore long tunics that were nothing more than a fluffy, poofy dress. But, I would have never showed my knees.

What do you think? Good idea? Tell Benny!

Listen to NPR interview with Peterson

I think we should let him wear his kilt. It still looks professional and isn’t really much different than shorts anyway. Stick with it Dean!
