New shirt design raises the bar for comfort, durability and freedom of movement
Cincinnati, July 26, 2013 – Creating a truly comfortable, high-performing shirt to help officers do their jobs better was the goal for Fechheimer in expanding its Flying Cross brand of public safety uniforms. With the addition of Power Stretch shirts – available now at authorized distributors – Flying Cross is meeting the market’s need for better mobility, improved comfort and enhanced fit for its top-selling Justice and Command lines of shirts.
The integration of Power Stretch design into performance polyester and classic poly/wool blend shirts demonstrates Flying Cross’ tradition of innovative design improvements for the rigors of on-the-job performance. Breathable but durable color-matched knit side panels provide an athletic cut with just the right amount of stretch for mobility. Factor in strategically placed stretch fabric into the shoulder area, and the result is a novel, functional design found only in Flying Cross brand Power Stretch shirts.
“Our goal is to bring comfort and functionality to the Public Safety market while also helping law enforcement personnel maintain a crisp and professional appearance,” says Bob Getto, President and CEO of Fechheimer. “Power Stretch has added mobility, breathability and a more athletic fit to our line. It’s what our customers want to do their job better. And we’re here to deliver on the promise of performance.”
Adds Dan Balzofiore, Vice President of Sales at Fechheimer, “The shoulder stretch gusset offers full range of motion while also accommodating body armor under or over the shirt. This feature is available only from Flying Cross.”
Power Stretch shirts also feature specially designed map pockets with low-profile Velcro® for easy access and secure closure.
Flying Cross Power Stretch shirts are now available in men’s and women’s short- and long-sleeve styles and in two fabric blends: Justice 75-poly/25-wool fiber-dyed in navy and tan and Command Polyester with Milliken Visa® performance technology in navy, tan and white.
