Service Dress Khaki

Has anyone heard any updates about SDK's? I thought they were suppose to come out at the end of the summer - since I'm not on a Navy base right now, I can't exactly go out and ask the exchange.

Just wondering if that uniform received the pocket veto or if it's actually going to become a reality again.

They might die out given that the Admiral who championed them is retired.

I didn't understand the logic in bringing back service khakis after tossing out wash khakis.

Additionally, I'd rather have my wash khakis back than the blue digicams.

Here's your answer. Short answer... canceled. NAVADMIN follows:

SUBJ/UNIFORM BOARD UPDATE//

REF/A/DOC/NAVPERS 15665I/01JAN03//

AMPN/REF A IS U.S. NAVY UNIFORM REGULATIONS//

RMKS/1. THIS NAVADMIN ADDRESSES THE SERVICE DRESS KHAKI (SDK) INITIATIVE.
THIS INITIATIVE WAS INSTITUTED SEVERAL MONTHS AGO AS ONE MEANS TO FIND AN
AFFORDABLE, OPTIONAL LIGHT WEIGHT DRESS UNIFORM FOR WEAR IN WARM
WEATHER/SUMMER MONTHS WHERE A COAT AND TIE (UNIFORM) IS DEEMED MORE
APPROPRIATE THAN SUMMER WHITE AND/OR SERVICE DRESS WHITE UNIFORMS.

2. A COMPREHENSIVE UNIFORM ASSESSMENT, EVALUATING OPTIONS FOR A SDK UNIFORM,
IS COMPLETE. IT INCLUDED EVALUATION OF: (1) PROBABLE QUANTITIES OF SDK SETS
ORDERED/SOLD, (2) WEAR TEST OF SEVERAL MODELS EVALUATING QUALITY, DURABILITY,
APPEARANCE AND FIT, AND (3) ESTIMATED COST PER UNIFORM SET TO THE INDIVIDUAL.
ULTIMATELY IT WAS DETERMINED THAT A NEW SET OF LIGHT WEIGHT SDKS, OF
ACCEPTABLE QUALITY, ORDERED IN THE PROJECTED NUMBERS FROM THE ASSESSMENT,
WOULD BE TOO EXPENSIVE TO THE CUSTOMER. ACCORDINGLY, THE DECISION HAS BEEN
MADE TO TERMINATE PURSUING THE SDK UNIFORM AS AN OPTIONAL UNIFORM.

3. HOWEVER, FOR E7 THROUGH O10 PERSONNEL, THE SDB UNIFORM IS A SUITABLE
ALTERNATIVE FOR WEAR IN LIEU OF SUMMER WHITE AND SERVICE DRESS WHITE UNIFORMS
WHEN A COAT AND TIE IS APPROPRIATE. PER REF A, SDB UNIFORMS MAY BE PRESCRIBED
FOR WEAR YEAR-ROUND TO ALL OFFICIAL FUNCTIONS (WHEN FORMAL DRESS, DINNER
DRESS, OR FULL DRESS UNIFORMS ARE NOT PRESCRIBED) AND CIVILIAN EQUIVALENT
DRESS IS COAT AND TIE.
THE SDB UNIFORM IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IN A QUALITY LIGHT WEIGHT FABRIC.

4. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING LIGHT WEIGHT SDB FABRIC AND ORDER
OPTIONS, AS WELL AS AVAILABILITY, WILL BE PROVIDED SEPCOR.
FOR QUESTIONS REGARDING UNIFORM POLICY, PLEASE CONTACT MR. ROBERT B. CARROLL,

...another dream crushed. Why couldn't they get rid of a different uniform? Say, something like NWU's?
