How to set up the dress blues
 Login/Join

I'm trying to set up the dress blue uniform for an inspection and neither my husband or I can find the regulations. He said I should have been able to find how to set them up online but all I could find is for the greens. Anyone know where I can find the info?

I'm a spouse and my husband isn't helping. He just told me to get them done for him, I've always done his Class A's. But I thought there was a different layout. Thank for the AR.

Are you talking about the ASUs or the old Dress Blues? Either way, AR 670-1 will have everything for the Dress Blues and there was a message sent out for the ASUs. But the ASUs are worn exactly the same as the Class A's. The only real difference is NO Shoulder Sleeve Insignia (SSI) and a Combat Service Identification Badge (CSIB) replacing the Shoulder Sleeve Insignia-Former Wartime Service (SSI-FWTS).

I forgot to add this: I'm not sure about Washington, but I know around Fort Bragg, NC there are a TON of places who know how to and will put together your Class A's, ASUs, Dress Blues, Mess Dress, etc. for you for a certain fee (usually $5-$10) or a little more depending on how much you have to put on. 95% of the time/places I've had this done for me have gotten the measurements spot on.

I wish this happened somewhere here at Fort Gordon I hate constantly taking my As apart and putting them back together, I would gladdly pay ten dollars, and then just have to check it for accuracy. As much as we wear them it just becomes a chore!

The ASUs I guess sorry. I was expecting to have soemtime but his unit wants everyone in the new uniforms at the ball.
In WA there was. We just PCSed to Hawaii and everyone on this island says they dont know how to put them together. Thankfully I learned some of it back in WA, we had some last minute fixes at the last couple balls. That I had to stop someone from using their hand as an ironing board to steam his... I have his Class A's set up so I'll transfer it all over.

It does become a chore, yes, but it also becomes muscle memory and you can eventually put it together without using a ruler. That helps a lot once you get soldiers and have to check them.

Check the local Clothing and Sales to see if they have the nifty book to put together uniforms. I know the book I have does not have ASUs in them, but maybe they have a new version out. If not, it's still set up the same as the Greens.

Lol, That's defintely not true and why would you even try.

Muscle memory, not quite, if anything you just remember what the measurments are and know what a 1/4 in looks like, 1/8 in and 1/2 in

When it comes to DA centralized boards, Soldier/NCO of Year, Audie Murphy, etc why even try and pull that stunt

Most of the measurements are approximate anyway.
