Dress Blues

Hi Everyone!
Today we are talking about E-6 and below dress blue uniform!


























Dress blues are the "winter" option of dress uniforms where as the whites are the "summer" option.  These are worn for occasions like inspections, boards and ceremonies or any other time the command deems them necessary.  The command will announce any time the dress uniform is to be worn as well as when it is time to change over from one to the other.

So the navy calls these dress "blues" however (at least in my opinion) they are black...  I had always thought that they really were blue so the first time I saw them, I didn't know they were dress blues.  So yeah.

*** This uniform and the dress whites are currently being evaluated for slight changes, watch for updates!***

**Remember, these posts are just for us non-military family member's reference.  Your service member learned all of this and then some as part of boot camp but I've always found that it is helpful if I at least have a clue about what he is talking about.  We've also had many occasions where I've had to run uniform parts and pieces to him at work and it saves a lot of time (and headache on both sides) if he doesn't have to spend 10 minutes trying to explain what he needs.**
