On a custom mess blues order, can you sew on the sleeve piping that indicates rank (as opposed to pin on/sew on rank insignia)?

Unfortunately, this is not authorized on jackets purchased after the 1970s and we are not able to attach this to a jacket.

We have made repairs to antique jackets purchased prior to the phase-out of this rank style and that is possible but for a new order, we are only able to sell what is authorized within the current regulation.

Are these sold individually or a set?
Question by: Coty Ruether on Apr 13, 2023, 3:52 PM
The mess rank is sold in sets, one for each sleeve.

I noticed that the Major mess dress rank is mirror imaged, the stem of the oak leaf points left or right. Can you tell me which way the stem is supposed to face as the rank sits on the sleeve?
Question by: Shawn on Aug 3, 2021, 1:21 AM
The proper way to wear this is with the leaf is worn with the stem facing the outside shoulder seam (away from the body).

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.
