(b) Length. The bottom of the slacks will reach the top of the instep in the front, and
reach a point approximately midway between the top of the heel and the top of the oxford shoe in
the back. When wearing the optional pump, this figure may vary slightly depending on heel
height (Fig. 4--3).
(c) Crotch. The crotch of the slacks should not bind fit with a slight ease and allow for
squatting and bending.
(4) Coat. The coat has been designed to look equally well over both slacks and skirt, hence
the longer than average length. Completely button the coat before checking the following:
(a) Back and Shoulders. The coat should fit smoothly across the back and shoulders
(b) Bust. The coat should fit across the bust without strain (Fig. 4--4).
(c) Hips and Waist. The coat should fit easily over the hips and conform to the waistline
curve without blousing. The bottom button of the coat should fall approximately one inch below
the natural waistline. The coat front, below the waist, must overlap without pulling or gaping so
the front of the coat will present a straight line from the top button to the coat hem. The back vent
must also overlap without pulling or gaping (Fig. 4--4).
(d) Length. The coat is designed so that if the coat size is correct in other areas, the coat
length, with few exceptions, will be correctly proportioned (Fig. 4--4).
(e) Sleeves. The sleeves of the coat should fall about one inch below the bottom of the
wristbone (Fig. 4--4). The sleeves of the green shirt should not show beneath the coat sleeves.
(5) Cap Garrison. The cap will be worn with the front vertical crease centered on the
forehead in a straight line with the nose so that the front lower portion of the cap is approximately
one inch above the eyebrows (Fig. 4--4).
