5/25/2006 - DALLAS  -- With the latest edition to the Exchange Online Store, busy troops can now assemble their uniforms with just a few clicks of the mouse. 

The virtual exchange's new "Uniform Ready-to-Wear" site makes it easy to complete uniform orders through one easy-to-use Web site. The final product is shipped to the Soldier or Airmen's door, ready to wear right out of the box, with no assembly required.
ACUs and BDUs can be ordered along with add-on items such as boots, belts, t-shirts and socks. For a small fee a local alterations contractor will even attach all nametapes, rank, insignia, badges and patches on BDUs before they are mailed. 

"This is the most convenient way for an Airman or officer to purchase a set of BDUs," said Maj. Brian Schooley, Army and Air Force Exchange Service Air Force military clothing program manager. "The uniform is delivered directly to the mailbox and once the local command patch is attached the uniform is ready to wear." 

Operational since July 24, the "Uniform Ready-to-Wear" site may be accessed by logging on to www.aafes.com. 

From there, military service members need to click shop by department and select "Military Uniforms Ready-to-Wear" to begin creating their custom uniform. 

"This is a great opportunity for active and Reserve Soldiers in remote locations to purchase their ACUs," said Maj. Lula Hart-Evans, AAFES Army military clothing program manager. "Assembling a complete uniform is now as simple as using a pull down menu."
