MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Defense Ministry is introducing a new uniform called an office suit for its military and civil staff, the Izvestia daily reports on Friday. It will replace the current everyday wear such as a woolen jacket with trousers and a shirt with a tie.

Nikolai Pankov, the Defense Ministry’s state secretary, told Izvestia that the new office uniform had been designed to make officers and civil staff to feel comfortable inside a building.

“It is a lighter option of the uniform designed exclusively for office work. It is much more comfortable to wear inside the building than a woolen jacket,” Pankov said. He added that a traditional officer’s jacket will not disappear. However, officers will put it on for rarer occasions.

The office suits will be of three colours: green, navy blue and black. The colour depends on the type and arm of service. The suit is unsuitable for wear in field conditions.
