The Coast Guard’s E-9 Master Chief Petty Officers (MCPO) are an elite group: with a statutory limit on how many Guardsmen can serve in the grade (1.5% of total active-duty enlisted personnel), those who are selected represent the service’s most dedicated and skilled members.

Display your pride of service and celebrate camaraderie with your fellow Master Chiefs with either a tie tack or tie clasp featuring the silver and gold MCPO insignia of rank. Authorized by Section 2.A.1 of the Coast Guard Uniform Regulations, the MCPO tie tack/clasp is worn with the standard or clip-on Coast Guard blue necktie, placed on the shirt of the Full Dress Blue, Service Dress Blue (A and B), and Winter Dress Blue Uniforms.

It’s especially striking on the Winter Dress Blue because it’s not obscured by the Service Dress Blue coat (regulations do not permit the tack/clasp to be visible when wearing the coat), as well as by the fact that its wear on the WDB is authorized for both men and women (the WDB is the only instance where females are authorized to wear neckties rather than neck tabs).

Do be aware, however, that while you are permitted to wear the Coast Guard necktie (or bow tie) with civilian attire, wear of tie tacks or clasp with Coast Guard rank insignia or other Coast Guard imagery is prohibited because they “present a distinctive Coast Guard appearance.”
