Although Second Lieutenants are not prohibited from wearing pin-on metal insignia on the sleeves of the Blue or White Mess jackets, we highly recommend these 2nd Lieutenant rank insignia featuring golden embroidered bullion instead. Because we offer two varieties of this embroidered bullion rank insignia for 2nd Lieutenants, we strongly suggest you that you double-check your selections in the two drop-down boxes to the right before leaving this page to checkout or do more shopping.

Under the Fabric section, select what type of uniform you will be attaching the insignia to (the options are self-explanatory). Regardless of your choice in the Fabric section, the Type selector allows you choose between traditional, sew-on insignia or “clutch back,” which secures the insignia firmly to the sleeve of the Mess jacket with a pin system frequently used for lapel buttons.

The clutch-back style insignia saves you money you’d otherwise pay a seamstress to give your sleeve insignia a highly professional appearance. Another advantage is that Blue Mess and White Mess jackets tend to last considerably longer than most officers spend at any single officer rank, so the savings on sleeves can end up being quite substantial based upon when you made your purchase and how quickly you’re advancing in the commissioned officer corps.
