For nearly four years, Marine Corps Systems Command has been working on a new dress blues coat for women that more closely resembled the coat worn by male Marines. The Corps wanted a more unified look between the two uniforms. On Nov. The most obvious difference for the new women's uniform is that the standing collar now matches the men's dress blues coat, instead of using the old standard lapel. Other improvements include a white belt and a seam in the upper-torso area to allow for Marines to more easily alter the coat to better fit their body types. It is also longer, an addition that gives it balance with the uniform trouser but also allows the wearer greater mobility and range of motion. The reason the changes took so long to design and then enact is the attention to detail paid to making the improvements.
