Before you begin to stripe Chevron on his jacket, you must know that these emblems can have a different shape, differ from each other in size. Different can be and the place where it is attached to the Chevron. Today, these features are determined by normative documents of the departments and agencies whose employees wear uniforms.
So the rules of wearing the insignia of officers of internal Affairs are established by the relevant orders of the interior Ministry and the annexes thereto. Current regulations have not changed for nearly fifteen years.
Chevron or insignia "Russia Ministry of internal Affairs", according to regulations, should be placed on the left sleeve of the uniform, at a distance of 8 cm from the shoulder seam or crease to the upper point of the Chevron.
The marks belonging to the individual services and specific units are placed on the right sleeve in the center of the pockets (winter and summer field uniform). On other types of forms such a patch can also be attached on the right sleeve at a distance of 8 cm from the top seam to the upper edge of the Chevron.
In addition, cadets and students of specialized educational institutions of the MIA have stripes depending on the course (the so-called "authorization"). Such patches are rectangular in shape. Are directional stripes on the left sleeve forms at a distance of 20 cm from the top seam of the sleeve to the top of the "authorization".
The technology of sewing on the Chevron to the sleeve is not very complicated, but requires some skill. Once you've measured the right distance from the top seam of the sleeve, place the Chevron on its place. Now an ordinary needle or pin attach the upper point of the Chevron to the fabric sleeves. This point must be in the middle of the sleeve, bearing in mind its width.
Now put on your jacket and the appropriate standing sideways to the mirror, position the bottom edge of the Chevron so that when freely lowered hand Chevron is located on the sleeve vertically, without distortion. The second needle pin the bottom part of the Chevron at the selected location. Now he is not going anywhere.
Remove the jacket and neat, small stitches, cleaned the inside, sew a Chevron on the contour. Try that Chevron does not form folds and fits snugly against the sleeve. It should be remembered that the color of thread should match the color of the stripe material.
