Abstract:

The recent development and approval of a 100 texturized polyester serge, for optional uniforms, in a darker shade of blue 1578 resulted in a visual difference between this new fabric and the Blue 1549 shade used in the 55 polyester45 wool tropical fabric used in the issue Class A Air Force uniform. At the request of the Air Force Uniform Board a new standard was developed for the polyesterwool fabric in Blue Shade 1578. In addition a set of eight shade tolerances were established for use in determining acceptability when the new shade goes into production. Author
