WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility (NCTRF) conducted a fit evaluation of women's uniform slacks and skirts at Naval Support Facility Arlington, April 25-26.

The fit evaluation captured feedback on the fit, appearance, comfort, and cut of the new prototype design of women's slacks and skirts for officers and chiefs. The evaluation consisted of 32 women trying-on the updated design of the skirts and slacks. 

"We listened to feedback from women wearing the uniform and have been working to make improvements to the fit and feel of the slacks and skirts," said Louise Caulfield, Business Development Manager, NCTRF. "The fit evaluation was necessary for the design team to do an assessment on the modified design of skirts and slacks."

Design changes for the slacks include a shortened zipper length and a lowered fit at the waist allowing them to sit on the hip. Updates to the skirt consist of a straightened profile from the A-line design that removed the welt pockets and added a waist line pocket.

"Overall we received positive feedback," said Robert Carroll, Head, Navy Uniform Matters Office. "We expect to do additional modifications to the pattern before the new slacks and skirts are available for purchase."

Once input and recommendations from the NCTRF is approved by Navy leadership, the newly designed skirt and slacks will be contracted for production with the goal of availability in select uniform centers, at the earliest, during the fall of 2018.
