The nonsubdued (silver) pin-on metal insignia for Army Captains is authorized for wear on the shoulder loops of six outerwear garments: the AGSU Coat, both Mess Dress Jackets (Blue and White), the Black or Heritage Green All-Weather Coat, and the Black or Heritage Green Windbreaker.

On all these garments save the Mess Dress Jackets,  the insignia is worn  5/8-inch from the outside shoulder seam and centered front to back with the two bars parallel to the shoulder seam.

For Mess Dress Jackets, the insignia is worn vertically in the center of the space formed by the lower curves of the knot and the upper edge of the braid (Figure 16-9 in the January 2021 edition of DA PAM 670-1). However, most Captains opt for embroidered bullion rank insignia (see link below) for Mess Dress jackets because it complements the sewn-on sleeve ornamentation (trefoil and sleeve braid) worn on them.
