Former Army Chief of Staff General Eric Shinseki ensured his place in the annals of Army history with his decision to take the Army Rangers’ beloved black beret and make it standard issue for all Soldiers for wear with the Army Service Uniform. To make matters worse, though, he also consigned one of the most useful pieces of Army headgear ever issued, the Garrison Cap, to the dustbin.

But while the Garrison Cap is no longer standard issue for Soldiers and Officers, we continue to carry it here at The Salute Uniforms in response to a very strong popular demand for this classic item. Besides Army veterans seeking to bring their uniform in line with the uniform rules that were in place while they served, we also get requests for Garrison Caps from uniform collectors, military re-enactors, and even media production companies seeking Army Garrison Caps that are manufactured to meet or surpass the Mil-Spec and Army regulations.

Our Garrison Cap for officers is manufactured in Army Shade 491 with Army-approved polyester and features a leather sweatband for enhanced comfort. Like all our items, these Caps are manufactured new—they’ve never been issued or worn.
