Approximately 36" of Officer Branch Sleeve Braid, enough to attach to both sleeves of either the ASU Coat or the Mess Blue Jacket. Sleeve braid is made of rayon in the correct "Goldenlite" color.
When attaching sleeve braid, it should be attached 3 inches from the sleeve hem to the bottom of the branch braid.
Note to Your Tailor: If you are having the sleeve braid done at your local tailor, it is important that they know Marlow White has provided a more than adequate amount of braid to braid both sleeves. We sometimes hear of the braid being done incorrectly and the tailor then claiming that you've been "shorted", but this is not the case. If your tailor has questions about the proper way to attach the sleeve braid please have them contact us as we are happy to answer their questions!
