Uniforms of US Naval Officer in Three Different Styles

In our family, most of the males serve in the military. My younger brother and my brother-in-law are both members of the navy team while my older brother serves in the marine corps. Aside from them, I also have two cousins who serve in the air force while the other one is a policeman. Besides serving the country, job security is one of the reasons why they opt to join in the said industry. At some point in my life, I was also recruited to be a part of the navy team. I was the only female in our family who has the courage to join the trainings of navy officer that time. But while in the midway of processing my application, something went wrong. And so my dream of becoming a military naval officer ended there. This also hindered me from having the chance to wear that custom embroidered uniform of navy officers.

In the military, it is so easy to determine whether the person is a high rank official or not. And that is based on the type of uniform that the person wears. A high rank military official’s uniform is usually incorporated with small yet very important details on the shoulders and on the upper left portion of the breast. These accessories found on the uniform such as insignia, custom embroidered patches of a particular military seal, badges, and the likes will indicate the wearer’s credibility and ranking. I included below the three different styles of uniforms worn by a high rank military naval officer, according to function.

 Service Uniform - worn for official function like traveling in official capacity or reporting to a command.

Full Dress Whites - worn during special ceremonies like change of command, retirement, commissioning, decommissioning, funeral, wedding, etc.

Dinner or Formal Dress Uniform - worn during official formal evening function when civilians typically wear evening clothes.

Some of the World’s Popular yet Affordable Fashion Brands of Logo Shirts

Whenever you buy new apparel, what are the things you always consider? Probably you will say of course the price, if it fits to the quality. Well, for me, one of the important things I look for each time I purchase new clothes is the brand. I believe that if the clothing comes from popular fashion brands, then the item is always produced with the highest craftsmanship. Famous brands of clothing usually have a team of expert designers who meticulously study and conceptualize the styles and designs of clothing that would suit to the latest fashion trends.

There are so many exquisite trademarks of clothing that made a name in fashion industry. To identify some of the   high end brands of apparel that rule the market and dictate impeccable fashion style and design in all seasons are Dolce and Gabbana, Guess, Dior, Chloe, Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Lacroix, and Armani Exchange. Only well-off individuals can often afford them these products would usually costs big bucks.

However, I also know some brands of logo shirts that would not cost as expensive as those abovementioned trademarks. These brands of logo shirts have always been my among favorite because they are affordable for an average individual like me and  portray that world class fashion touch in terms of design and style as well as excellent quality in terms of craftsmanship. 

These logos of fashion apparel brands are either custom embroidered or screen printed on the shirts.
