Why do the blue slacks not match the dark blue jacket in the marine dress blues?
The US 1831 uniform regulations designated a light blue uniform including a shell jacket and trousers for field use with a stripe on the outer seam of the trouser corresponding to the branch of service for sergeants and corporals. As was traditionally the case with frugally minded congressional budgets, light blue was cheaper to produce than the Indigo dyed wool previously used. The light blue also did not fade as badly as the dark blue. These same regulations required a dark blue coatee with standing collar for full dress which had it's precedent in the 1810 uniform regulations (circa War of 1812). The 1851 regulations changed the uniform to a dark blue frock coat and dark blue trousers for both enlisted men and officers. This was revised at the beginning of the Civil War in order to differentiate between officers and enlisted men by reverting to light blue trousers for enlisted men and retaining dark blue trousers for officers. This color combination was carried through until the 1910 regulations eliminated the dark blue uniform. The current change in the army uniform is following the idea of tradition previously carried forward by both the Marine Corps and the Navy by adopting color combinations that date back to the earlier history and tradition of that particular branch of service.

Marine Corps Dress Blue . The following is quoted from the site indicated, Marine Corps Uniform Regulations:\n\nhttp://www.tecom.usmc.mil/mcub/library/MCUR/URCH2.htm\nMrV\n. \n. \nI was a U.S. Marine and the above is correct. The dress blue uniform is the formal wear for events, funernals, and… weddings. Basically for any special occation. The uniform is of 3 colors, red, white and blue. The colors of the flag. The red stripes are called blood stripes. Which represents the battle of Halls of Montezuma during the Mexican-American War of 1847. The buttons all have the Eagle-Globe and Anchor on them. This is the Marine Corps Emblem. (MORE)
Answer . The legend goes like this. US Army dress uniform pants are a lighter blue than the coat because of the days of horseback cavalry, where they would roll their coats up and keep them in their saddle bags. The pants would get bleached a light blue in the sun, and their coats would stay dark… blue. Eventually, after the days of riding, they decided that it would be a cool tribute to their past if they issued them that way.. The answer is because of the development of US army uniforms over the history of the army.

Blue Jacket was a Shawnee Indian who died in 1810. Blue Jacket wasborn in 1743 and like Tecumseh was a famous historical figure.
Generally not. Navy blue and black is a very somber combination because there is little contrast between the colors.. If you're a guy, consider brown shoes; women also have the option of a cream-colored shoe. No what color shoes would you wear with them if you didnt wear black?? I think that's f…ine (MORE)
There was a shortage of uniforms as well as what uniforms they had they wore out or were damaged by war. IF they could yes they dressed uniformly. If not, they did the best they could.
Yes, if it is one peice of clothing. No, if it is shirt and pants.
you should have a brass buckle, one hook, two smaller brass "keepers" and one 2" white belt. For starters the buckle goes on your right side. This will be obvious when You pick up Corporal, but its good to get in the habit now. 1:With the buckle face down, and slide the white belt into the ben…t-over tab with the hole. 2:slide one of the "keepers" down the end of the belt that just went through the hole. 3:fold the belt back over and run it back out the hole it came in. 4: repeat for the the hook side. Its pretty easy once you get the hang of it. If this doesnt help keep asking and Ill give you more detailed instructions later. Semper Fidelis (MORE)

Midnight blue is the classic alternative to black for tuxedos--under low artificial light, it appears black.
Comes from a couple hundred years ago when forces would leave thefort for patrols and take jacket off (when boss wasn't around) --and they put the jacket in a saddle bag. When they came back to thefort, they would put the jacket back on -- but the pants becameslightly faded due to the sun (compared …to the unexposed jacket) (MORE)
Because of tradition. When the Marines we aboard the ship they would take off their jacket, and being on the deck all the time caused their pants to fade, but their jacket didn't. Actually. The reason the coat is a darker color is because they would wade into swamps during marches, then out, the…n back in. The water only came up to about their waist, so it would fade much quicker than the jacket which remained out of the water. (MORE)
Dress Blue "D" is the dress blue uniform worn with the blue slack and short sleeve khaki shirt (without coat).
Well i dont really know for sure but as they say : Once a Marine Always A Marine. So i guess you can if u wear it with pride and honnor and you were once a marine at its not your friends and he's letting you borrow it or something so i say i guess you can.
well, the first mission of the Marine Corps was delivering mail, yes i know Marines delivering mail. Their uniforms of the time were heavy dress uniforms so we they went to deliver it on there horse they would remove their blouse and store it in a saddle bag. Boots and utes so to speak, and eventuly… the trousers would fade and the blouse would still be dark because it would be store so much of the time. There are alot of little known facts, myths, and fallicies reguarding Marine Corps history. And i am a Marine and learned this from a very knowledgeable CPl, whom was tought by a 1stSgt. I also did a little of my own research on a few of the subjects and found them to be true. - LCpl USMC Maybe your cpl should have spent some time teaching you to spell as well, but, I suppose leather necks don't need to spell do they?

I thought they ALL did.....please correct me if I'm wrong. ^^^^^ you are wrong. only officers and NCO's have swords. junior marines (E-3 and below) are not authorized to carry a sword as a part of their uniform.

no such thing as placement of shooting badges on dress blue "alphas." the alphas are the jacket with large medals. the dress blue "bravo" is the blues jacket worn with ribbons and badges.
it refers to the the dress blue uniform which has ribbons and shooting badges as opposed to medals. it is considered the second highest dress uniform for most marines.
Yes. They go in the center of the ribbon of the medal. If you rate a star, and it is the correct corresponding star/medal.
first of all, blue slacks are soooo laast tyear and second of all a white button up collared shirt
Yes if the shades are a right match and they are worn with mediumbrown leather (belt and shoes).
The correct placement of all US Military awards must be in order of rank, as prescribed in what is called an "Order of Precedence" . Lists and pictures of the order are available everywhere.
No, they dont match. You cannot match two tones of the same color-it just looks weird.
The color of the blue jackets are the same as the Union: Blue, Red, White
Various colors complement the blue but it often depends on whichshade of blue one is referring to. For instance, navy blue iscommonly seen paired with green, white, orange, or red while alight sky blue may be seen paired with white, pink, or grey.
yes a blue jean jacket will look great with a sundress, but not a formal dress. It basically depends on what you are wearing. Blue Jean jackets look great with blue jeans, casual dresses, anything but black pants or skirts. :)
Yes, but the only ribbons you can wear are the ribbons that does not have a corresponding Medal i.e Combat Action Ribbon, Seaservice Deployment Ribbon. You can wear up to 7 medals in one row but they have to be mounted a special way. Ribbons are worn on the right hand side and follow the 1/8th on an… inch spacing from the pocket. (MORE)
When they loose their virginities to sailors :) hope that help you ya' niggur :D
Theyre not the best color combination. If the blue was on the bottom (navy blue dress pants or dark jeans) you could make it work pretty well. But in my opinion blue does not work well with brown if it's on tools.
there is no diffrence weather it is a male or a female, a marine is a marine. the female marine will understand you are not invading her privacy. position of a metal is the same for all Semper Fi , do or die, OHRAH

Technically no colour is present absent light since it is light that gives anything colour.
The red piping comes from the Revolutionary War. At that time the US did not have money for uniforms. It was customary for Marines to take the uniforms of fallen British Troops (their red coats). This created a problem in that they would be mistaken as British forces. To prevent this from happening …they would turn the coats inside out. The coats were lined with a dark blue liner and where all the different seems were the red would show thru. Hence the red piping along the seems of the Dress Blue Coat. (MORE)
Black, blue, white, and maybe purple, pink, and red depending on what shade of blue it is. Also jean, khaki, yellow, and lighter blue depending on the shade of blue.
It was Rick Nash. But unfortunately, he was given to the New York Rangers. =(
Cream or white if you want classic... Red or coral pink if you want to make a statement... :) Enjoy x
Never match your eyeshadow to your clothes!! It is best to flatter your eyes. You should probably do a neutral brown/gold eye. Here are the colours that complement different eye colours the best. . *Blue eyes- Gold, more of an orange/ copper toned gold because blue's complement is orange, but orang…e is kinda hard to wear without looking really strange. You should have a darker colour in the crease. Like a neutral dark brown. *Brown eyes- Green, purple, or gold, again. This time, though, the gold that is most flattering should be an antique gold. One that has more of a green tone to it, once again with a darker brown crease. Luckily, though, brown eyes can easily pull off any colour, and green and purple can both be wearn naturally *Green eyes- Sort of the same for blue, but mostly I recommend purple. Purple is a suprisingly easy colour to wear, especially if you have a lighter tan colour on the lid and a darker purple in the crease. This is a berry purple, meaning more red toned than blue toned. *Hazel eyes- Hazel for the most part is a mix between brown and green in appearance, so you could go with looks for either eyes. *Grey eyes- Pretty much the same as blue, but your eyeshadow shouldn't be quite as vibrant, so you don't overpower your eyes. Hope this helps!! (MORE)
To see or wear a jacket in your dream, represents the image that you want to present and project to the outside world. Alternatively, it symbolizes your protective and defensive persona. You tend to distant your feelings and as a result, you may isolate yourself. Also the color, appearance, and type… of jacket have added significance. Since the jacket in your dream is blue, this is what it represents: truth, wisdom, heaven, eternity, devotion, tranquility, loyalty and openness. Perhaps you are expressing a desire to get away. The presence of this color in your dream, may symbolize your spiritual guide and your optimism of the future. You have clarity of mind. However, the color blue may also be a metaphor for "being blue" and feeling sad. (MORE)
You find the blue jacket in Cryptids island where the boat driver wears it. Make sure you don't make him go on vacation first
Scarlet Red tie and white shirt. Or. Black tie and white shirt. Or. White tie and dark blue shirt. Or. Electric blue tie and black shirt.
In m opinion, lime green does look good with the jeans. i don't think dark green does... eww.
It's a little bland of a color combination but it would definitely work if you worked it!
No. Dark blue is a dark blue color, but navy blue is contrasted with white.

Blue and Brown can me matching in some instances. If it is a formal event, professional colors are recommeded. If it is an informal event, as long as the shoes are brown, there won't be much of a ruckus regarding attire.
The Union soldiers in the North were called "Blue Jackets" and Ohio has a rich American Civil War history.

There are several online websites where one can purchase Marine dress blues. Some of these stores include USMCBlues, MarineCorpsDressBlues and Uniforms4-U.
Blue dresses appear blue becasue the dress is absorbing the bluecolor in the light. It's the same with everything else. When anobject has a color, it's because it's obsrobing that certain color(the object does not have to be a solid color).
