Ask just about any woman and she'll tell you: there's just something sexy about a man in uniform. Maybe it's because it's a sign of bravery and commitment to something, maybe it's because it shows confidence, or maybe it's just because they are so perfectly form-fitting.

Whatever the reasoning, they are hot. In case you needed some eye candy this Valentine's Day, here are the top 5 cream of the uniform crop!

    Doctor

    They can save your life, they are brilliant, and they are good with their hands. If that's not enough of a reason, I have one word for you: McDreamy.

    Cops

    They literally roam the streets looking for bad guys to save you from. They are strong, courageous, and put themselves in danger to protect us. HOT.

    Football Players

    It doesn't matter what team they play for. These guys are all muscle and their athletic ability is what we've been dreaming of testing out since high school.

    Firemen


    There's a reason they make firemen calendars. (I would know, I have one.) Firemen do something unfathomable to the rest of us. They RUN INTO BURNING BUILDINGS. It makes no sense. You see a building on fire, you leave it. No, these guys would rather run in and save the day. Add to that the fact that they generally know how to cook and know how to handle a...hose...and well, what's not to love??

    Military

    I'm kind of partial to Army fatigues and Marine dress blues, but I've never seen a military uniform I didn't think was super hot. Head to NYC for Fleet Week in late May and just enjoy the sight of sailors roaming the streets. Air Force, Coast Guard, it's all sexy as anything. They give up their lives to serve their country, and they look REALLY GOOD doing it. Add to that a strict training regimen, a respect for authority, and the pure manliness of it all? Yum.
