If you've ever found yourself admiring those Washington State Patrol uniforms, you're in good company.

The WSP has been honored as the Best Dressed State Agency in America by the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors. The agency's heavy-weave wool uniforms are made by Blumenthal Uniform Co. of Seattle.

Sharing top honors for 2009 was the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
