Hello. I have been in the auxiliary for three months, and am in the process of putting together my uniforms. I have a complete ODU, and Tropical. I would like to get a SDB jacket, combination cap, and winter dress shirt, in addition to the wash and wear pants. My questions are about the cap, and the SDB jacket. Is the jacket true to size, or smaller? My flotilla commander, not a large man by any definition, told the flotilla that he had to get a 46 reg jacket. He looks to be a 38 or 40 short. As for the cap, I bought a garrison cap in size 7-5/8. It just does fit; the pleat at the top opens a bit, but other than that it is fine. Had I gone with the size/measurement the website said to use, I would have bought a 7-1/2, and had to send it back.
While I am here, does anyone know if the winter dress shirts will be available again when they are authorized? The ShopCGX website has been out of my size, and anything near it, for some time.
