Marlow White's swords and sabers have ceremonial blades. As such, they are built to strict military regulations to be used in drills, ceremonies, and displays. These blades are of the highest quality but are not sharpened for use as a weapon.
Marlow White's Removable Button Strip
Why is our removable button strip valuable, even though you have to sew on the button strip? There are several reasons.
- It can save an expensive "side alteration" later. We have heard that as Soldiers progress in their careers, their coats "shrink" while hanging in their closets. The uniform REALLY shrinks when Soldiers retire. The removable button strip allows you to move the buttons over a bit to let out the coat should you gain weight. Permanent button holes in the uniform do not allow this future flexibility.
Granted, the initial alteration to have your button strip attached to your uniform will cost you a few dollars more, but we have found that the savings of having removable buttons and the ability to easily adjust the side fit far outweigh these initial costs over the life of your uniform.
Why do we not offer button strips on the female uniform? The button strip is visible when used on the female coat because of the design of the coat.
