View Full Version : sunglasses

can anyone provide a source where any Marine Corps regulation actually states that sunglasses cannot be worn on your head indoors while in civilian attire or where it specifically states that sunglasses are head gear?

there is no order or actual regulation for stuff like that, it's just in poor taste(in the Corps anyway). Don't worry about though, just don't do it

you think 18 years is too old or young to be an e8?

08-15-15, 02:55 AM
why is it in bad taste? what makes it so?

Troll, if you were a Master Sergeant/First Sergeant you wouldnt be asking such a stupid question.

What is a troll? It was a couple simple questions.

There are no specific orders and regulations regarding sunglasses (specifically) to be worn on the head. It is in poor taste , however. The current order references hats and covers worn indoors and is currently being revised to be more inclusive of other items (such as glasses and headphones worn indoors). It is not professional looking at all.

Thanks for the answer. I haven't found anything written anywhere about it. Everyone has their own opinion on how it looks but the gospel is what I'm looking for, if anything actually exists.

If your looking for the gospel MCO P1020.34G is your uniform gospel. As I said, sunglasses are not referenced specifically in the MCO - that may save a young marine from actually getting an official counseling - but it won't save him from an ass chewing (especially from a SNCOIC) .... I have seen Marines try to pull the "but theres no Order against it!" against a MGySgt and the results were hilarious

Eyeglasses. Eyeglasses, when worn, will be conservative in
appearance. Eccentric or conspicuous eyepieces are prohibited. Chains,
bands, or ribbons will not be attached to eyeglasses; however, eyeglass
restraints are authorized for safety purposes, but must be of conservative
style/design. Sunglasses, when worn, will be conservative in appearance
without ornamentation. Manufacturer logos should be small and inconspicuous.
Sunglasses may be worn on leave, liberty, and in garrison but not in
formation unless prescribed by the commander or certified medical authority.
When authorized for wear in formations, sunglass lenses will be of standard
green, black, or brown shade or may be the type commonly referred to as
"photosensitive." Sunglasses that do not have "photosensitive" lenses will
not be worn indoors.

what a laugh

Im not stupid enough to put all my personal info all over the Internet. What knowledge do you suppose I lack about the Marine Corps? You don't know a thing about me and that's probably a good thing for you. Your just one of those *******s that lives on the Internet talking **** to everyone like a telephone tough guy.

Not 18 years old. 18 years in the Marine Corps. Maybe I should have been more clear.

Does that 'x' mean you can't see the leatherneck.com hyperlink? It's a post from 2006 about sunglasses.

08-15-15, 07:45 PM
Yeah it doesn't show up

08-15-15, 08:00 PM
To your original questions, the answers are 'no' and 'no' ... If some SNCO has a pet peeve about sunglasses being worn indoors in civilian attire, he/she is FOS.

08-15-15, 08:04 PM
I have read just about every rule and regulation over my time and try to keep up with all the changes. I didn't think it was written anywhere. Just wasn't sure if I missed it somewhere.

08-15-15, 08:32 PM
As a senior SNCO, I would have never pulled any Marine's punk card for wearing sunglasses indoors in civilian attire.

08-15-15, 08:37 PM
Yes agreed.
