Our set of two 1/-2-inch stripes comes in two 30-inch rolls and is available in gold or silver (many Merchant Marine companies opt for silver rather than gold stripes)—just choose your color and use the Quantity selector to buy as many sets as you need. When placing the stripes on the jacket sleeve, place the first stripe so its bottom is two inches from the end of the sleeve, then put the next one 1/4-inch away from and parallel to the top of the first stripe.

Customers who have purchased these Merchant Marine sleeve stripes in the past have also expressed an interest in the sleeve devices worn by officers in the Deck, Engine, and Steward departments, as well as the collar devices for Deck, Engine, and Steward department personnel.

Note: The gold stripes may be worn on U.S. Maritime Service uniforms, but Merchant Marine stripes do not include configurations equivalent to Lieutenant (junior grade) or Lieutenant Commander. We recommend USMS customers visit our Navy Lacings page for a complete array of lacing sets for ranks O-1 to O-10.
