The Female Dinner Dress Blue Jacket (DDBJ) is a basic component of the uniform of the same name that’s authorized for Winter wear at official functions at which civilian attire would be black tie. Possession of the DDBJ is mandatory for Officers in the rank of Lieutenant Commander (O-4) and higher and is optional for all other Officers and all Enlisted personnel (those who choose not to purchase the DDBJ uniform would instead wear the Dinner Dress Blue uniform to black-tie events).

Featuring a narrow shawl collar and worn with no front closure, the bolero-style Female DDBJ has three 22.5-ligne Navy eagle buttons on each front panel. Buttons are gold for all Officers (including Warrant/Chief Warrant Officers) and Chief Petty Officers, silver for Junior Enlisted personnel. Rank or rating is displayed with sewn-on sleeve stripes and sleeve devices for Officers and with rating badges and service stripes (“hash marks”) for Enlisted Sailors.

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 minimize total alteration costs, since placement of sleeve devices and sleeve stripes or services stripes is predicated on the distance from the sleeve end. 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.
