    DS mentioned he liked the sweaters they can wear with their uniforms--the one with the elbow patches--he said they were thick and he thinks one would be a good idea for the "dark ages". I know they can get one at the uniform shop but--Is there a way we can purchase one --might be an extra something for Christmas.

    You can call the mid store and ask if they carry this item.

    Actually, the mid store is the ONLY place that I would purchase a uniform item such as this.

    A future Surface Warfare Officer in the making :yllol:

    If it's the sweater I'm thinking of you could also likely pick it up at any NEX Uniform Store or NEX online.

    As Mongo mentioned I would agree that the best place would be the store there.

    Try looking here:

    https://uniforms.nexweb.org/

    Your son :)wink::wink:) needs to log into that site and see if they have what he needs, then it can be ordered from there

    The only thing that I was thinking is that there seems to be about a half dozen versions of this sweater;v-neck, crew neck, acrylic, wool, blend, with and without epaulets and/or velcro name tags, etc., etc. While an upperclass cojuld probably get away with any of them and be considered 'salty', a plebe would be considered 'ratey' and I don't think blackhawkmom wants to bring undue attention on her plebe.

    I didn't look too hard but I didn't see the uniform reg of what is 'official', not to say that it even applies at USNA.

    The mid store is not part of the NEX system. He could return it across the river at the Exchange.
