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.

“Ceremonial Dress” refers to full formal dress uniforms for ceremonial parades and other special occasions. Uniforms include regimental Full Dress (such as scarlet tunics and bearskin hats of Guards regiments), Patrol Dress (a slightly less elaborate regimental uniform), and Service Dress (see below) uniform with ceremonial accoutrements (swords, white web belts, gloves, etc.).
