My department allows us (K9, SWAT, Homeland Security etc.,) to wear black BDU's on patrol. Because they fade I buy them in a set, pants & shirt together, rather than buy/wear the same pairs of pants with both short and long sleeve shirts.

I was wondering if anyone makes BDU's or a "Tactical Dress Shirt" (Propper & Tru-Spec) with sleeves that are removable for both summer and winter?

Any ideas? I did a Google search but got nothing. :dunno:

Thanks!!!! :wavey:

My best guess would be something from Bratwear, but that would be pretty spendy. On the upside, it most likely wouldn't fade.

I've tried Whoolite and cold wash and I label my uniforms and keep the same shirt and pants together. I also dry clean them about 75% of the time. They fade. That's just a fact of life with that 65% / 35% fabric.

I was looking for removable sleeves so I can save a little cash by only buying one shirt for both seasons.

What about just buying long sleeve shirts and rolling up the sleeves?

I wear BDUs for crowd control shifts and wear long sleeve shirts (even in the summer). The day we had our riot I had the sleeves rolled up but once things kicked off the sleeves came down and provided a little extra protection to the arms.
