For all of our performances, we'll be wearing "Choir Blue”. See table below.

Female

Navy Blue (for USN or USCG) or Red (for USMC) Polo shirt with embroidered insignia*

Below Decks

Black trousers (black belt if trousers have belt loops), no jeans

Black slacks or skirt (the latter hemmed at or just below the knee)

Anchor

Black socks and shoes, no clunky boots or athletics shoes unless you have a medical issue requiring same

Black pumps or flats with no bling

 

Because we have many performances lined up so far, please bring at least two sets of shirts and trousers with you. We always want to keep a professional and consistent appearance when we perform. So no overgarments (such as jackets or sweaters) are to be worn during the performances. Friendly reminder: If you wear a T-shirt underneath your polo, make sure it does not show (a V-neck).  Officers do not dress with their underwear showing!

OUR VENDOR FOR OUR SHIRTS WILL BE THE NAVAL AVIATION MUSEUM SHIP’S STORE for a consistent and professional appearance. They sell our polo shirt with insignia*. Order ASAP. If they’re out of stock in your color or size, there may be a 3-week delay.

*  Typically, pilot or NFO wings. Call 800-247-6289,  If you have different wings, email execdirect@navavalumchoir.org

  • Pilot wings: SKU 1973-1 NFO wings: SKU 2015-1: Here’s a link to NFO shirt and the NA wings.
  • Sizes tend to run slightly larger, i.e., an XL from the Museum will be a little larger than an XL you buy at national retail stores like Kohl’s
