Air Force Officials standardize informal uniform

As a result of the 96th Air Force Uniform Board, a standardized informal uniform is now authorized for wear. The informal uniform will be mandatory for wear by all applicable Air Force personnel starting Jan. 1, 2011.

The Air Force Chief of Staff directed review of the informal uniform to help standardize it across all career fields currently authorized to wear it.

"Standardizing this uniform will help demonstrate the professionalism of the Airmen wearing it while providing functionality during distinctive duties, travel and special events," said Lt. Gen. Richard Newton, chief of staff for Air Force manpower, personnel and services.

The now-standardized informal uniform includes a dark blue, short or long-sleeved shirt with a "U.S. Air Force" logo on the front, upper left chest and a white functional identification monogram on the left sleeve above the elbow.

"The functional monograms are specific for those career fields currently authorized to wear an informal uniform," said Master Sgt. Danny Marks, the Air Force Personnel Center's dress and appearance manager.

"Examples of approved monograms include 'USAF Honor Guard,' 'USAF Band,' 'USAF Chaplain,' and 'Fitness Center Staff.' Enlisted aides will not have a functional monogram on their shirts," Sergeant Marks added.

Brushed silver name tags with rank and last name will be worn. Occupational badges are optional for wear. If worn, the badge should be centered a half inch above the name tag.

An undershirt will also be worn, and must be white with a V-neck collar.

Trousers will be pleated, khaki slacks without cuffs. Shorts are not authorized. A black belt with a silver clasp should be worn, as well.

Shoes will be plain, black business casual low quarters or plain black athletic shoes with black socks.

A dark blue watch cap or baseball cap with the logo, "USAF" may be worn outdoors only. Also, a dark blue jacket with a removable fleece liner and small "USAF" logo on the front upper left chest is authorized for wear.

Informal uniform items will be bought through the local purchase program.

Personal grooming and accessory standards must be within regulations while wearing the informal uniform.
