Garbage men in 19th century officers' uniforms?

I realize FST is technically advanced and extremely prosperous and the state garbage collection monopoly finances what government they need, but. . .

I hope they've come up with really good stain-resistand (maybe stain-proof) fabrics. . .

I kind of think that it's cool.   8) It certainly would be a draw for tourists to see a uniform on a garbage man instead of just a dirty coverall that the average one wears.

Frankly, it looked to me a lot like the Mexican Army uniforms that Santa Anna's troops wore during the Alamo siege. 

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Is that a real poncho?  I mean, is that a Mexican poncho, or is that a Sears poncho?

Was that really Alfred E. Neuman dresssed as a (ahem) sanitation engineer?? :D

I don't think so -- Alfred E. doesn't have a handlebar moustache.    8)
