Federal Jackets (Officer)


Buttons Are Included in Jacket Price But Are Not Attached

Buttonholes are machine sewn unless you specify to leave them for hand sewing. 

For color pictures of the wool we carry please follow this link.


Due to the great variety of officers' needs, it is best that one contact us for selection and pricing on these items.  We have sack coats, shell jackets, frock coats, trousers, leather gear etc., available for officers.  We have found that folks are better served in this line if we work all details out together in advance.  Usually the cut and materials used in officers' garments are different than the Enlisted man grade.   For instance, wool broadcloth material for coats. 
For assistance with officer uniforms please contact Carolyn Jarnagin                Phone:   (662-287-2579)     OR          E-mail: (jarnagin@jarnaginco.com)

Officer items are usually made to order.  We generally do not keep them in stock so please plan ahead.   Officer items are made according to individual specification; therefore, you may not change any detail once the item is underway.  Due to the intricacy of this work you will need to allow at least 30-45 days for delivery. 
Please do not call just to check on how things are coming along, it will usually cause a delay. 

*You may not return for refund or exchange any custom tailored   item.  We may be able to alter but we will not accept as a return.
