Worn by both Officers and Enlited personnel, the Male Dinner Dress Blue Jacket (DDBJ) is a long-sleeved, single-breasted mess jacket featuring narrow semi-peaked lapels with the back tapering to a point. Three 35-ligne Navy eagle buttons are on each side of the front panel, and two 28-ligne Navy eagle buttons joined with a linked chain are used for front closure. The only differences between the Officer and Enlisted versions are how rank (Officers) and rate and rating (Enlisted) are displayed—sleeve stripes and corps device for the former, rating badge and service stripes for the latter—and the color of the buttons (gold for Officers/CPOs, silver for Junior Enlisted).

We manufacture our Navy DDBJ at our state-of-the-art facility in North Carolina with a Navy-authorized, Mil-Spec certified 55/45 polywool gabardine. It is Berry-Amendment compliant and meets or surpasses all Navy specifications. Simply put, you will not find a higher-quality DDBJ at any price.

Note: Our military dress coats and jackets are manufactured and ship with unfinished sleeves longer than most customers would ever need. This is to accommodate various arm lengths and to reduce total alteration costs since placement of sleeve stripes or services stripes is based upon distance from the sleeve end, allowing you to hem the sleeve to its regulation length before sewing on sleeve ornamentation. We do offer a variety of sleeve alteration services that will be suggested to you when add the coat to your shopping cart should you prefer to have the coat arrive ready to wear.
