CS Officers have progressive rows of deluxe gold braid on the top, sides, front and back of the cap to indicate rank. A row of braid encircles the quatrefoil design on the top. Following the 1862 Confederate Regulations, the top and sides of the cap are in the branch of service colors and the lower band is in dark blue. Other color combinations can be made based on documentation. The standard braid pattern is shown on the Captain's and General's Kepis.
