    ABU modified ?

    Hi,
    Here is a pharmacist jacket. It seems modified, the pockets are sewn and the interior has been removed. Have you ever seen this ? For what purpose ?













    Thanks a lot !

    Pharmacists are a garrison/ rear echelon job. Makes for a more smarter appearance in Garrison, you don't have to worry about the pockets being all messed up.

    I have a couple DCU's where all the buttons were removed and the pockets sewn shut. DarkTrooper is right, they look sharper when starched and pressed out.

    Have a pair done up like this myself, to have on-hand for VIP visits, briefings, ceremonies, etc. They do look good when freshly pressed.

    Also, the newer ABUs do not have the internal pockets. They were removed after complaints of heat retention.
