Several improvements were made to this blouse over the 1898 model. The body design has been changed to a 6 piece body and the belt dropped. The standing collar has been replaced with the popular roll collar. The back pleat has been replaced with a sewn seam and the trim colors were dropped except for the shoulder tabs- now made removable!
The lower pockets have been moved closer to the front of the blouse, almost lining up with the upper pockets. The changes to the trim color scheme allowed a minimal amount of blouses to be made while being able to be issued to any branch, since now the shoulder tabs could be clipped on -a sizeable Cost Savings!! The Tab and Shoulder clips are supplied loose and come with sewing instructions. US Eagle Buttons are sewn on at no charge.
