Staff Noncommissioned Officers (E-6 to E-9), or SNCOs, are the only Enlisted personnel authorized to wear an Evening Dress Uniform featuring high-waisted, or “high-rise,” Evening Dress Trousers. Manufactured in the same sky-blue shade as the Blue Dress Trousers and sporting the same scarlet stripe, the Evening Dress Trousers are worn with a scarlet cummerbund and a dark-blue Evening Jacket upon which 1890’s-style gold-on-scarlet chevrons have been sewn.

Worn in both Summer and Winter, the SNCO Evening Dress Uniform is worn at social functions at which civilians would wear black- or white-tire attire. It is technically considered an optional uniform; in reality, ownership of the SNCO Evening Dress Uniform should be considered de rigeur by any Enlisted Marine in the SNCO grades who takes his career and profession seriously.

Note: We ship our trousers unfinished so you can have them adjusted to provide a perfect fit. However, the option to have our team alter and hem your Trousers based upon your measurements and according to Marine Corps specifications will be presented to you when you add the Trousers to your Shopping Cart.
