United States Coast Guard regulations regarding the wear of tie tacks and tie clasps are among the most lenient in all the Armed Forces of the United States, specifically authorizing tacks and clasps featuring replicas of Officer, Enlisted, and of course Chief Petty Officer insignia.

Our USCG Chief Petty Officer tie tacks and tie clasps combine two of the most instantly recognized images in the seafaring world—the fouled anchor worn by Chiefs for over 125 years and the silver shield of the Coast Guard—into a single accouterment that’s both a quiet testimony to duty and service and an acknowledgement of many who have served before.

When worn with the Full Dress and Service Dress Blue uniforms, the mandated positioning of the tack or clasps—aligned to the center of the shirt pocket—means it isn’t visible underneath the coat. On the Winter Dress Blue uniform, however, the tack or clasp will stand front and center—and it also happens to be the only instance where females are authorized to wear the necktie and tack/clasp.
