Description and Wear of Uniform Components
Overblouse, Khaki, Service (Female)
Article 3602.1









Khaki in color and made of authorized fabric (75/25% poly/wool blend) with short sleeves and an open collar forming a V neck.  The overblouse is a basic uniform component for female officer and enlisted Sailors. 
Correct Wear
(1) The overblouse will be worn outside the slacks or skirt and will hang comfortably over the hips and chest.  The length will be long enough to fall approximately one inch above the bottom of the side pocket opening.  All buttons will be fastened.
(2) Undershirts, 3501.101, collar insignia 4227, warfare insignia 5201.2, identification badges 5101, name tags 5201.4, and military decorations 5305-5312 will be worn as prescribed in their respective articles.  The placement of the lower horizontal area of the lowest row of ribbons will be approximately 6¼ inches down from the shoulder seam and centered over the front seam on the wearer's left.  Nametags will be placed in the same manner on the wearer's right side of the overblouse.  Adjust ribbons and name tag as necessary to obtain a proper appearance.

(3) When worn with the black relax fit (knit collar) jacket or V-neck sweater, the overblouse will not extend below the bottom of the jacket or sweater.  If the length of the overblouse protrudes beneath the jacket or sweater, gently roll/tuck/fold the bottom of the overblouse up and under so that it will not be visible. 
(4) White undershirts are optional for females at non-industrial environment shore commands.
Ownership Markings
