Response to Army Officer Summer Service Dress uniform

Rick: It is possible that you might come across slight variations in design. At the time my TW and winter SD were tailored, pleated trouser fronts were apparently standard. However, mine were specially tailored sans pleats with flat trouser fronts. In addition, having been greatly influenced by the tightly tailored uniforms that Steve McQueen wore on screen, (hey, I was a kid) I also asked that my uniforms be tailored virtually skin tight. As skinny as I was, there were absolutely no wrinkles or folds under my Sam Browne! My shirts were also tailored tight so that there would be no folds under the tunic. Tunics were never removed. There was no shirt sleeve order back then.
