As soon as my status changed to USAF Retired AAFES would not sell me uniform items online.
They have zero problem taking my money in person though. ::)

And I got yet a third result.  I am a retired Army officer.  AAFES will let my buy most uniform items online - but not DLAATS items.  I can buy the $41 shirt - but not the $14 shirt - that online looks like the same thing.  I even think its the same picture.

In person they don't care how I was authorized to get in the building - all customers are the same at that point.

From comments here and IRL experience, it appears AAFES has somewhat of a mess on their hands in
this regard.

I was truly surprised to find I could by anything online except a DLAATS uniform item.  Only possibility I can think of is that DLAATS is there for enlisted and online at least, my retired rank makes a difference.  As has been said, they don't care when you physically go there in person.  Which would be the only way I could get ABU's, as I don't think they even exist in a non-DLAATS version.

I have had varying experience buying AF uniforms in person. According to a couple of places, DLAATS items are universally restricted to folks with green and red ID cards. Other places let anyone buy them. USN and USMC uniforms are generally sold in two different locations - the uniform store for DLAATS stuff, and the exchange for everything else, simplifying the restrictions.

You are correct sir - I'm just a veteran (not retired) and I was able to load non-DLATS stuff to my cart.

Anything not DLATS is a commercial item and open for purchase, DLATS is restricted to current military.

I used to work in an MCS.

Enforcement seems to be uneven.

Probably wouldnít be AAFES if it wasnít.

Thereís probably some tomfoolery going on with DEERS too since thatís what AAFES privileges are based on.

Soooo....at the end of all that, is the supposed process as outlined in CAPM 39-1 defunct? Is it no longer possible to get an MCSS catalog sent to a unit (perhaps electronically, if not in print?), or to gain individual access by calling some magic telephone number and then ordering over the phone? Has all that gone away with the advent of shopmyexchange.com?

As a veteran who has some sense of AAFES, my commander has tasked me with getting to the bottom of this and getting our unit access to uniforms ASAP.

Thanks for any insights anyone has on how to proceed here!

Correct - as of last contact, AAFES is no longer available to members except for in-person MCSS locations.

I hope your commander is aware this is well above yours or his paygrade.  There are work arounds availible.

Find an Active Duty Service Member, Reservist, National Guardsman or Military Retiree that has access to AAFES, give him a list of your needs (and cash) and have him/her either in person, or online, purchase the requested items.

Not ideal, but most Military Members I know would happily help out a CAP unit/member if asked.

The only issue, ABUs are soon to unavailable (ACUS too) and the only field uniforms that you be able to get from AAFES will be OCP pattern.

And before you have to ask, any CAP unit/member in the Greater Chicagoland area that would like to ask me for help, send me a PM, and I will assist you as best I am able.
