THE PENNCHANTS UNIFORM, A CREATION OF FORREST MIDBURN, TH'16, WAS BROUGHT TO THE GROUP IN 2016 AS A FUN-FORMAL ATTIRE TO BE WORN AT SHOWS AND PUBLIC-FACING EVENTS. PRIOR TO ITS ADOPTION, THE GROUP EXCLUSIVELY PERFORMED IN COSTUME - A TRADITION THAT WE HOLD ONTO LOVINGLY IN OUR SHOWS. THE UNIFORM HAS SEVERAL COMPONENTS:

[1] THE JACKET
SUPPLIED BY OUR BRAND SPONSORS, MEMBERS ONLY, OUR ICONIC RACER JACKETS ARE GIVEN TO EACH NEW MEMBER OF THE GROUP (AKA NEWCHANT), WITH UNIQUE COLORS BEING ASSIGNED TO EACH NEWCH'. THESE JACKETS ARE OFTEN REFFERRED TO AS "THE M.O."

[2] SHIRT AND TIE
PENNCHANTS DRESS TO IMPRESS. UNDER THE M.O., A GOOD PENNCHANT WEARS A PRESSED WHITE LONG-SLEEVE OXFORD WITH A BLACK SKINNY TIE HELD TIGHT AROUND THE NECK. FOR INFORMAL EVENTS, WE'LL OCCASIONALLY DROP THE TIE.

[3] FADED JEANS, LEATHER BELT
WE TEND TO ADVENTURE QUITE A BIT AND REQUIRE A LEVEL OF PANT SECURITY AND GRIT THAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN DENIM. WHETHER WE'RE RIDING THE SUBWAY TO A GIG OR FIGHTING OFF WAVES OF POLAR BEARS IN THE TUNDRA, OUR JEANS KEEP US ON OUR TOES AND READY TO PERFORM. THE BELT, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS JUST FOR LOOKS. 

[4] FUN SOCKS AND CONVERSE HIGH TOPS
NOTORIOUS FOR THEIR HOBBYIST SKATING SKILLS - ON TOP OF THEIR FIREFIGHTER VOLUNETEERISM AND MODELING SIDE-HUSTLE - THE PENNCHANTS WEAR CONVERSE HIGH TOPS FOR THEIR TRACTION AND PRACTICALITY. THEY ARE PAIRED WITH FUN SOCKS OF THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS' CHOOSING, WHICH HAVE IN THE PAST HAVE DISPLAYED SUCH ICONOGRAPHY AS PINEAPPLES, VISAGES OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, AND WAR PROPOGANDA. IT'S REALLY AN OPEN BAG.
