Our set of gold lacing to be used for the sleeve insignia of Navy / Coast Guard Lieutenant Commanders is your best option for ensuring you have enough of the gold lacing to sew three stripes each on both sleeves of a dress uniform. Lieutenant Commanders wear a single 1/4-inch stripe between a pair of 1/2-inch stripes on each sleeve (there is a quarter-inch of space between stripes); our set includes two 30-inch rolls of half-inch lacing and one 30-inch roll of quarter-inch lacing, enough for all those stripes with some left over.

Officers wear a device above their sleeve insignia indicating which cohort of Officers they belong to. Line Officers, both Restricted and Unrestricted, wear a five-pointed gold star positioned a quarter-inch above the top stripe of the sleeve insignia with a single ray pointing down; Coast Guard personnel wear the shield-shaped Coast Guard Sleeve Device in a similar manner, with CWOs also wearing a device denoting their specialty. Staff Corps Officers will wear their Corps insignia (oak leaf for Supply Corps, Crescent Moon for Muslim Chaplain, etc.) in the same location.

If you are purchasing this Lieutenant Commander sleeve lacing set for a uniform/jacket you have already placed in your shopping cart and you did not opt for the Lacing and Sleeve Device Sewing Service, we recommend that you remove the jacket from the cart and add it again so you can add that service to your order. Our uniform specialists will use the information you provide them to ensure that your sleeves are precisely the correct length and that lacing and devices are sewn in exactly the locations spelled out in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard Uniform Regulations.
