INTERIM GUIDANCE ON WEAR OF NEW AGSU (Pink and Greens).

(Courtesy of UNIFORM GUIDE)

The Army is still finalizing the detailed guidance on the proper wear of this new uniform. Some troops already have the uniform. Until the Army finalizes it's requirements, we at UNIFORM GUIDE, cannot update our ARMY UNIFORM GUIDE. Below is the guidance from the Army so far published. It will be incorporated into next edition, as well as the
finalized guidance once they publish it.

1) Either oxidized finish or silver finish badges will be worn. No mixing.
2) No nameplates will be worn on the coat or shirts.
3) Since female AGSU coats have only pocket flaps (no pockets) their insignia will be worn IAW male uniform standards.
4) No more than one identification badge per pocket will be worn.
5) No more than four combat and special skills badges to include marksmanship badges will be worn. No more than 3 marksmanship awards will be worn at one time. Badges 1/4 inch above the ribbons, or pocket flap. Badges may also be worn below the ribbons 1/4 inch below the top of pocket flap.
6) No more than two special skill tabs from group 4 (sewn on) will be worn. They will be sewn on the left sleeve 1/2 inch below the shoulder seam. The SSI will be worn 1/4 inch below any tab.
7) Either permanently awarded unit awards or temporary unit awards will be worn. No mixing.
8) Four-In-Hand neckties for both male and females.

9) The Soldier Sleeve Insignia (SSI) will be sewn on the left sleeve centered 1/2 inch below the shoulder seam of the coat.
10) The SSI for former wartime service will be sewn on the right side also 1/2 inch below the shoulder seam of the coat. The combat service identification badge is not authorized on the AGSU coat.
11) Regimental Distinctive Insignia (RDI) is worn on right side of coat centered 1/8 inch above pocket flap or 1/4 inch above any unit award or foreign badges. It may be aligned to the right edge of the unit awards if the coat lapel obscures it.
12) No badges or accouterments are authorized for wear on the Class B AGSU (shirt). Also U.S. and branch insignia not authorized on Class B. Until further guidance can be provided, it is suggested to use much of the guidance already published in UNIFORM GUIDE for the ASU uniforms.
