The U.S. Navy has begun its transition from the Navy Working Uniform Type (NWU) I to the NWU Type III as its primary shore working uniform. Sailors can wear either the NWU Type I or III right now, but effective Oct. 1, 2019, all Sailors will be expected to wear the NWU Type III as their primary working uniform when ashore or in port. Currently, black boots will be the standard boot worn in the United States and its territories with the NWU Type III, but units can set a command-wide policy authorizing use of the tan boot. The black fleece is authorized for wear with the NWU Type III. NEXCOM expects to have Type III uniforms in select uniform stores next fall. Enlisted clothing replacement allowance will be adjusted to cover costs of these uniform changes and requirements.
