    Tailors for Dress Blues

    Hey Marines,
    Can I just go to any tailor to have Blues worked on, or do I have to find a military tailor?
    OHH-RAH!!

    I went through the PX tailor for tailoring and button hole. I had liberty cuffs put on in Japan. Not sure if it is still the same but issue blues came with regular brass. Getting a coat button holed ment getting the coat set up for anondized butons. Liberty cuffs look it up.

    While 'any' tailor can do the work, if you find one that is used to working on Blues, you'll get a better product overall and less issues.

    I would go to a military tailor with a good reputation who is off base.
    The 'on base' tailors can have a long wait. Especially this close to the Ball.

    Tailors who primarily do civilian clothing will be able to tailor the fit, but won't know about the button holes.
