Here, the General is seen wearing the short, battledress-dress style jacket (modelled on the original British one) that he had specially tailored for himself in London when he took up his European command in 1943. In this version his “IKE” jacket, as it came to be known, is tailored in the same chocolate brown material as the regular U.S. Army officers’ issue uniform of the period. When this colour of jacket was worn it was usually teamed with the “pink”( more beige khaki actually) trousers of the standard officers’ uniform.
