What are the regulations on waring Army black beret?
Question by: Trinidad Rael on Jan 7, 2020, 11:41 AM
(1) General. The beret is the basic headgear for utility uniforms in garrison environments. The beret is not worn in the field, in training environments, or in environments where the wear of the beret is impractical, as determined by the commander. Additionally, the beret is not worn on deployments unless authorized by the commander. Personnel being transferred from one organization to another may continue to wear the beret and flash of the former unit until they report for duty at the new organization.

(2) Wear. The beret is worn so that the headband (edge binding) is straight across the forehead, 1 inch above the eyebrows. The flash is positioned over the left eye, and the excess material is draped over to the right ear, extending to at least the top of the ear, and no lower than the middle of the ear. Personnel will cut off the ends of the adjusting ribbon and secure the ribbon knot inside the edge binding at the back of the beret. When worn properly, the beret is formed to the shape of the head; therefore, Soldiers may not wear hairstyles that cause distortion of the beret.

How is the patch attached to the beret? can it be removed? THANKS!
Question by: Wilburn S. (Bill) Lassiter on Oct 13, 2019, 12:29 PM
The patch is stiched into the beret during the production process at our factory. This patch can be removed by a local tailor.

Is the flash stay sewn to the beret on the inside independently of the flash itself? If so, can I buy one without the flash?
Question by: Rob on Dec 28, 2019, 6:20 PM
The flash is sewn onto the beret from the inside. We do not sell this item without a flash, but we have had customers who have found local tailors who can take these off once received.

Do you sell maroon berets or just black?
Question by: Chuck on Nov 13, 2019, 6:18 AM
Currently, black is the only Army-approved beret that we offer.

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.
