General Fitting Guidelines

This uniform is designed to be loose fitting. A tight fit reduces airflow needed for ventilation and cooling.

The coat will not extend below the top of the cargo pocket on the pants and will not be any higher than the bottom of the side pocket on the pants. The trousers will be worn bloused using the draw cords or blousing rubbers if the trousers are not tucked into the boots. Trouser legs will not be wrapped around the leg so tight as to present a pegged appearance.

Black Beret

Fitting Guidelines:

The beret should fit so the headband is straight across the forehead and 1 inch above the eyebrow. The excess material shall drape over to the right ear, extending to at least the top of the ear, and no lower than the middle of the ear

Coat
Fitting Guidelines:

a. Coat. Completely button coat and inspect for proper concept of fit by checking the following:

(1) Collar. The shirt collar must show about 1/4 to 1/2 inch above the coat collar at the center back of the coat. The coat collar should fit close around the neck without gapping or overlapping.

(2) Back, Shoulders, and Chest. The coat must fit easily over the chest and shoulders, giving a slight draped effect in the front and back. Four to seven inches of looseness should be equally distributed around circumference of the waist to provide comfort when moving.

(3) Hips. Coat fronts should be smooth and even at the bottom edges. The bottom edges in the front of the coat will protrude and the back vent will spread if the coat is too snug at the waist and hips.

(4) Lengths. The bottom edge of the coat must extend below the crotch but not less than one inch. Have the individual stand erect with his arms at his side and bend his fingers at the knuckle, forming a semi-fist and keeping his thumbs straight.
