Military uniforms vary widely from those worn in battle or duty to "dress" uniforms, which might be replete with medals, ribbons, or other decoration that identify the wearer's rank and battlefield experience.

Bands, fraternal groups, police and fire departments and others have mimicked military uniforms for dress-up occasions, helping to inspire respect for the wearer.
