New York-based fashion designer Stan Herman (b. 1932) counts several airlines among a long
list of large companies for which he has created uniforms. From 1976 to 1981, thousands of
United’s cabin crewmembers wore a combination of Herman’s western style all-season uniform
called Classic U.S.A. This three-piece, vested-suit version in rust Dacron polyester, was worn
over the cream long sleeve body blouse highlighted in orange and red piping with a logo
pattern. The optional hat with a narrow brim proved popular with flight attendants.
