As the lowest-ranking Staff Noncommissioned Officers (SNCOs), Marine Corps Staff Sergeants wear sew-on chevrons on two of the three types of uniforms authorized for enlisted Marines—Blue Dress and Service—as well as on two types that are also authorized for Officers, the Evening Dress and Blue-White Dress. While chevrons for the Blue-White Dress “A/B” Uniform are the same as for the Blue Dress “A/B” coat, the SNCO Evening Dress uniform calls for a distinctive 1890’s-style gold-on-scarlet insignia featuring extended chevron wings, resulting in a much broader base.
Use the Size and Finish drop-down selection boxes to the right to specify the appropriate type of sew-on Staff Sergeant chevrons for your uniform.
Size: Per USMC Uniform Regulations, sizes are large for men and small for women.
Finish: Select the appropriate combination of chevron and background material colors for the type of uniform:
  • Gold on Red: Blue Dress "A/B" and Blue-White Dress “A/B” Uniform coat
  • Green on Red: Service “A” Uniform coat
  • Green on Khaki: Khaki shirts (long- and short-sleeve)
  • SNCO: SNCO Evening Dress coat
Regardless of uniform or garment, Staff Sergeant chevrons are always sewn on point up and centered horizontally on the outer half of the sleeve. Vertical positioning varies by uniform type:
Dress and Service coats, Long-sleeve khaki shirt: 4 inches from shoulder seam
SNCO Evening Dress coat: 3 inches from shoulder seam
Men’s short-sleeve khaki shirt: Centered between shoulder seam and bottom of sleeve
Women’s short-sleeve khaki shirt: Centered between shoulder seam and peak of cuff
