    The recent thread about recorded taps made me wonder.....

    For those of you that actually play taps at funerals, what do you wear?

    Dark suit, "calm" tie (no wild patterns/designs), and overcoat if it is in the winter.

    It's a solemn event; All black.

    Usually a black suit; with white shirt and black tie!

    Unless I'm specifically told to dress in another way.

    You wear what you'd normally wear to a funeral. If you're retired military, your uniform is appropriate.
