United States Coast Guard, Uniforms

As Auxiliarists serving under the United States Coast Guard, we should all take pride in wearing our uniforms.
Your appearance reflects not only on yourself, but also on your unit and all members of the Coast Guard.  For that reason, it is essential that you understand the standards and expectations that go along with this responsibility.Chapter 10 of the Auxiliary Policy Manual sets the standards and requirements for uniform wear when serving in the Auxiliary.   The following is a brief overview of our requirements, but you are encouraged to review Chapter 10 of the Aux Policy manual for additional information.

Uniform and Grooming Standards
It is important to note that you must wear the entire uniform as prescribed.  There is no in-between.   Members lacking parts of any particular uniform may not wear the uniform until they have acquired all required items. Instead, they must wear either civilian clothes or the Auxiliary blue blazer.  See the Uniform Procurement Guide for assistanceFurthermore, uniform items must be officially certified by the United States Coast Guard. Substitution of similar items is not authorized. (Example: You may not wear blue slacks purchased at a civilian store in lieu for the official blue wool Coast Guard slacks made for wear with the Tropical Blue uniform)

Belts:  There is an appropriate bucikle to be worn on spcific uniforms and they are not to be interchangeable under any circumstances.  In is not acceptable to wear an ODU belt/buckle with the Tropical Blue uniform. Conversely, it is not acceptable to wear the Tropical Blue belt/silver buckle with the ODU uniform.  Civilian belts and buckles are not authorized on any uniform.
