RVN Naval Officer Black Uniform


Description: Double-breasted, black wool, Saigon tailor made, commander rank. The black naval dress uniform was worn less often in the RVN navy than the white dress uniform, but period photographs suggest it was, nonetheless, in use throughout the history of the RVN navy. Officer jackets in this pattern were double-breasted. Enlisted were single.
