    Hand-me-downs can be a blessing. Our Commandery is blessed with some of that to include several swords, a couple of blouses, even my cheapeau is older than I am; however, not every Commandery is so lucky. But in the interest of the salvation and growth of our order I still desire to make a drastic change to our dress in order to make it attractive, comfortable and less expensive.

    We wear our uniforms, if you have one, for every meeting and for some other Masonic functions such as the Arch of Steel for installing the DeMolay Master Councilor. But I understand the expensive factor and want to make changes.

    In my jurisdiction in Chapter a crimson jacket is the uniform article. In Council a purple jacket is the uniform article. However, neither is a requirement.
    In my Commandery the double breasted black jacket, black slacks, sword (silver for Sir knight, Gold for EC) and feathered chapeau is the uniform. Just recently gotten my my uniform and accessories. I very much like the current uniform.
    I very much enjoy the drill.
    Same here
    Our Commandery has some items. Unfortunately, none that I could use.
    Same in my Commandery. However, if a member does not wish to perform in the drills and ceremonies or hold office a uniform is not required.

    I know that this is an old thread but it is one that very much interests me. That is why I am reviving it.

    I have had my uniform together for a little while and I still have a lingering question.

    What is the belt hook for on my belt? Lol

    I had the very same question and someone answered it for me, but now I can not remember the answer, lol. Will find out and get back to you eventually.

    Do you mean the hook close to the hilt of your sword when you have everything on? If so, you can slip the sword a few inches out of the scabbard and put the hand guard in there to keep the sword/scabbard from swinging when you walk. It is primarily for when you are marching in a parade or something.
