Accoutrements are additional items of dress or equipment, either carried or worn by an individual. As such the range of items varies greatly from buttons, shoulder titles and cap badges in the metal category; to machine or hand embroidered badges, crests and neckties in the cloth category. See below for examples in each of the Canadian military levels of dress. Most items can also be adapted to corporate or organizational requirements.
Also called a “walking-out” or “duty uniform”, Service Dress is the military equivalent of the business suit. It is the standard uniform for appearing in public (hence the moniker “walking-out dress”). The uniforms range from the tunic-necktie-undress ribbons to the more informal short-sleeve shirt dress. No. 4 (Base) Dress (also known as “Garrison Dress” in the Army) has been phased out and this category, for the RCAF and RCN, has been adapted to replace it.
