    Is there a website to buy coast guard academy apparel? I keep trying the exchange but apparently I need to already be a member of the coast guard.

    I have not seen Academy specific items anywhere except at the Academy exchange in New London.

    Regular CG apparel can be found at all CG exchanges which normally require an id to purchase items.

    I can check online though. There may be some Academy items available online through the Alumni Association.

    Unfortunately, while you are allowed to purchase Coast Guard and Coast Guard Academy apparel and souvenirs in person from the Coast Guard Exchange located at the academy, their web site is set up to serve only those with valid credentials. However, if you know or see what you like and know what size you want, you can call the exchange and someone there should be able to help you. Unfortunately, other than visiting the exchange in person, I don't know any other way to buy "official" Coast Guard Academy apparel.

    CTO, you can call the Exchange on campus to purchase items. They are very helpful. It helps to know what you want. However, you may only purchase "logo" items. So you cannot buy uniform items, which includes the t-shirts and sweats which are issued to cadets or active duty members. However, they have plenty, I say again, plenty of sweats, hoodies and t-shirts which say Coast Guard, or Coast Guard Academy. They also have mugs and stuff...

    This is a link for the CG Alumni page. There is a large number of CG items if you click on the shop link. Prices are higher than at the Exchange but it helps support the Alumni Association. A number of items have "Alumni" on them but it you scroll through you can find Academy items too.
