    The address for his website — uniformfreak.com — says it all.

    Cliff Muskiet, an aviation-crazed kid who grew up to be a flight attendant for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, has a collection of more than 1,000 flight attendant uniforms.
    “Only stewardess uniforms,” Muskiet told msnbc.com in an interview between flights. “The female uniforms come in various colors, materials and with different accessories like hats, scarves and gloves. Male uniforms all look the same: jacket, pants, plain shirt and a tie, most men’s uniforms are dark blue and quite boring.”
    Muskiet got his first few uniforms in the 1970s and 80s. After a 1993 stop in Ghana, where he picked up some old Ghana Airways uniforms, he began collecting in earnest.

    To be fair, at least he was collecting female flight attendant uniforms... although collecting male uniforms would have lead to a pretty sick collection for Halloween.
