Brown jump boots, a leather bomber jacket and more

A week after the Army secretary signed off on a new service uniform, final details are still being worked out as the service prepares to solicit a contract and begin fielding the throwback uniform next year.

Beyond the iconic green “Marshall” jacket, taupe pants and brown leather oxfords, soldiers will have three options for jackets, two for matching covers, and ― for airborne units ― the uniform team is working on a prototype of brown jump boots, Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey told reporters on Monday.

The uniform is a nod to the World War II-era “Greatest Generation,” a nostalgic look that still resonates with Americans, Dailey said, but,"there’s another great generation that’s serving today, and those are the soldiers in the United States Army."

Photos of the most up-to-date design choices aren’t available yet, according to Col. Stephen Thomas, PEO Soldier’s protection and individual equipment program manager, because changes were being made until nearly the last minute.
