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.
Army White Shirt Details
To stay informed and up-to-date with announcements related to the Army Uniform Change, we recommend that you sign up for our newsletter.
Cloth Color: The cloth color is white.
Cloth Fabric: The authorized fabric is a solid-color "herringbone" weave in a permanent-press 65/35 polyester cotton blend. The weight of the cloth is 5 ounces, significantly heavier than the current "issue" poly-cotton green shirt. The solid-color herringbone weave provides a dressier and "classier" look to the fabric than the green and white mixed weave of the current green cloths. The heavier cloth eliminates the need for a heavier poly-wool cloth, a cloth many Soldiers preferred over the lightweight "issue" green cloth. Natick has currently authorized only one weight and blend of cloth for the white shirt.
Shirt Pattern Details: The current patterns are generally the same as the current green shirt patterns, except for three significant changes:
- Permanent military creases, two in the front and three in the back, are set in with Creaset® (not sewn in to keep cost down).
- No pleated (or "puff") pockets.
- Currently, a more tapered, athletic fit on the sides.
