Here's my reasons:
I always thought it was because he was a State Alchemist, and not really a soldier.
All short jokes aside, he was very young and they might not have had his size.
It might have been dangerous for him to be so young and go around in a military uniform. Plus, people aren't exactly fond of the military there.
Ed (along with Al, Winry, and Pinako) didn't like the military and he only joined to be a State Alchemist. He might not have wanted to wear one.

But, even though I'm not fond of BBI at all, I always thought Ed looked good in a uniform.

He'd rather not associate himself with the military any more than necessary.

Plus his other outfit is way hotter!!!!

Why he doesn't wear a military uniform? Because they haven't found one his size! *gets shot*

Lol i really like the pics from 'that game' Ed looks hot haha, i wish Arakawa would draw him in it just once lulz

Anyway I was actually just thinking this today and then I see a thread and i was zomg XD

The small thing well I don't think thats it, its the miltary of a country, I'm inclined to think everyone important has their outfit custom made anyway, i wouldnt think it was hard to make him one...

but if the small thing was right its probably because he refused to let them take his measurements XD in fact very probable, remember him in that omake? haha

and lastly, Ed isn't really around much doing the dutys other soldiers do, and probably wouldnt want the extra attention and hassle of wearing it, and he'd probably get more greif over his shortness if people saw such a tiny soldier XD hes too proud to be associated with the milatary that much

There is a very good reason Ed doesn't wear a military uniform...

*looks around*

Whispering: They don't make them that small. tongue.gif

EDIT: Darn it! Someone beat me to that joke!

My guess is because he hated the military and only joined to get Al back his body and he didn't want to wear the uniform. No one complained (that we know of) of him not wearing it. Of course, they also might not have had his size, but I think they would have one made if it was really important that he wear it everyday. He would have to wear it if the Fuhrer ordered him to anyhow, or there was something with another country that was formal. It was highly unlikely that they just didn't make them small enough. I mean, look at Fuery, he's only a little taller than Ed and he wears a uniform!

I think that would be because he is very young. Like Roy said, he still wasn't 16 yo yet at the start of FMA. At 16 years old age then he must join the military. Roy said that also.

There are other alchemists and people aside from Ed who work in the miltary, and dont wear the uniform, such as kimberly and tucker, doctor nox still works with the miltary too right? I think its more Ed doesn't wish to be associated with the miltary more than he has to, he doesnt need a uniform saying to everyone what he is, and he travles a lot, a uniform wouldnt be good for his kind of lifestyle, from a practical point of view and as i said before, everyone of any worth probably has their uniforms custom made anyway, im sure one could be made to tailour Ed but he probably refuses to have his measurements taken, opposed to not having his size XD

I thought it was because he was more of a field State Alchemist rather than a part of the actual branch of the military. While he may be a military dog, he doesn't really hold an actual position in the military itself. Like... with Roy and the others, they have their actual ranks, while he only holds an equivalent rank due to being a State Alchemist...?

... I don't think I worded that very well. Basically, it's like he's hired by the military, but not really part of the main branch of the military, hence he isn't required to wear a uniform. I mean, Shou Tucker was also a State Alchemist, but he doesn't wear a uniform either. I think it's also partially because they're more on the research/field work division as well, where they aren't required to be in the office 24/7, hence wearing the uniform doesn't really have an effect.

Oh, and his age as well might have factored in it. He's probably still too young to be considered as one of the ranking officers, hence no uniform.

Ed doesn't wear the uniform for a couple of reasons,
1. He has never been in an actual war. (The conflict in Lior does not count.)
2. He is actually too young to offically be a ranking officer. He is 15/16 through out most of the seires. You have to be 18 to join the military.
3. It maybe an act of definence.
4. It would give Izumi another excuse to beat the crap out of him.
