USAF Mess Dress Jacket, Pants, Bow Tie & Cummerbund
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED, NO Damage. Once they are gone we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
Great find! The Air Force Mess Dress jacket is worn with both the Mess Dress and Formal Dress uniforms, with the principal differentiation being that a silver chain fastener (linked buttons) is attached when the jacket is worn with the Mess Dress uniform. Mess Dress uniforms are worn at formal social functions and/or at events, ceremonies, or occasion of an official nature. Air Force Mess Dress Trousers are “high rise,” designed for wear at the waist rather than at the hips. This positioning also improves the appearance of the cummerbund - required component of both uniforms.
The Air Force Mess Dress jacket is a single-breasted with two columns of “wing and star” buttons on the front panels, satin lapels, and a satin shawl collar. Officers wear shoulder boards on the Mess Dress jacket to display their rank, while enlisted personnel wear chevrons just below the shoulder on the left sleeve.
Excellent choice for any collector, person searching for Halloween attire, or simply a fantastic jacket for regular use.
Note: this is current Military and cannot be sold overseas - only in US.

NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest. The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone. We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history. Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes. All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc. We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war. May god protect them!
