Certified Army Uniform Cloth

The US Army Natick Soldier Systems Center, or Natick, is responsible for certifying Army products. All of our uniforms and fabric are certified by Natick.

The Certification Label

Certification tag

Inside our certified clothing items you will find a tag similar to the one at left. The tag warranties that the uniform item is made to the specification standard spelled out by the Army.

Companies that are selling non-certified uniform items will not have the tag inside their uniforms. They may also use a tag and omit the certification number. For a company to sew a certification tag inside a non-certified uniform item is a felony.

Certified Cloth

Certification tag

The cloth for Army uniforms must be manufactured in the USA, and it must fully comply with the Army's specifications.

Cloth that is certified for Army Uniforms will have a kaumagraph (a "watermark" for cloth) imprinted on the inside of the fabric. This faint kaumagraph is visible on the left.We turned one of our certified Army Service Uniform Trousers inside-out to photograph the kaumagraph. The kaumagraph is highlighted by the red box. We digitally overprinted the image, as we often do, with our © symbol so that other web sites do not steal our images.

Fabric that is manufactured overseas is much cheaper to produce, but is not certified.

Made in the USA

Certification tag

Not only must the cloth for the uniforms be manufactured in the USA, the uniform itself must be manufactured in the USA.

The Bottom Line:

There will always be unscrupulous vendors out there looking to prey upon the unsuspecting Solider to make a fast buck. We feel it is taking care of our Soldiers to educate them about these scoundrels. Be sure you get what you are paying for and are supposed to wear. Not all uniforms are certified.

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.
