The military uniforms of the Sparnell Armed Forces
are known for their sharp features and simplicity of design, in support of their reputation for military efficiency and brutality. The same family of uniforms are worn by all branches of service, officers and enlisted alike. Variations include the dress uniform, for formal occasions, and the service uniform, for everyday wear within the fleet.
The SAF dress uniform was designed with an eye for intimidation and authority. As a result it is the only SAF uniform to include starched white in its colorations, the others centered on the shades of brown said to represent the planetary members of the Confederation.
The left breast of the white jacket is adorned with the wearer's full collection of service ribbons and medals, with the right breast bearing only the gilded nameplate. Admirals wear their personal insignia above the nameplate, while their Oathbound display the insignia of their sponsor as lapel pins on the stiff high collar. The jacket also displays the occupant's rank prominently on both the sleeve cuffs and shoulder bars. The threads of the jacket are specially treated with Chromamancy
to ensure it maintains its brilliant white coloration.
The trousers are dark brown and unadorned, with the possible exception of golden Void Stripe piping worn by Void Mages
down the outer sides of the legs. A matching brown belt is worn around the waist, over the jacket, sometimes said to signify the Sparnell Confederation planets' support of their military. A stiff white hat with a dark brown brim and gold (for officers) or silver (for enlisted) trim completes the ensemble, the wearer's service emblem displayed prominently on the front.
Gloves, while officially included in the dress uniform, are rarely worn by members of the SAF outside of the most formal of occasions. The thick white fabric tends to tangle in claws despite the Threadmancy
applied during weaving and various efforts to include fingertip reinforcements or claw holes. As a result the garments are only willingly worn by humans
