The post World War II jacket called the MQ-1 from 1947, was shorter and better tailored as it was designed for dress rather than field wear. The jacket was further refined as the M-1950 without button cuffs. The uniform began to disappear with the introduction of the Army Green U.S. Army Service Uniform from 1957 but was still worn by troops posted outside the United States.
After World War II, jackets of this style became a convenient type of coat to wear when operating a vehicle and/or carrying a sidearm, which made variations of it popular with civilian police agencies.
The 1st Marine Division, sent to Melbourne after Guadalcanal, were issued Australian made jackets similar to Battle Dress that the Marines called the "battle jacket" or the "Vandegrift jacket" after the Division's commander. The USMC later adopted the waist length jacket in 1945 that was authorised until 1960.
The United States Air Force wore Air Force blue Ike jackets from 1949 until 31 May 1964.They used the WW2 or M-47 version from 1947 to 1949
