RICH HERITAGE

Flying Cross, a brand of Fechheimer Brothers Company, began the journey of manufacturing the world’s most trusted uniforms for public safety in 1842. Beginning as a small dry goods store in Cincinnati, OH. The Fechheimer brothers combined adventure and passion, seeking out opportunities to grow their business and give back through their trade. With the beginning of the Civil War, the Fechheimer brothers honed their father’s legacy and craftsmanship of making clothing, to secure the United States government contract to supply uniforms for soldiers in the North and South. This feat marked the beginning of Flying Cross’ commitment to innovation by standardizing men’s uniform sizes for the first time ever in American history.

Since that time, Flying Cross has been shaping the way uniforms are made and used within the military, law enforcement, fire and other markets beyond public safety. Taking on the name of one of America’s most honored medals, the Distinguished Flying Cross, Flying Cross has translated this history of heroism and extraordinary accomplishment to the many customers it serves today. For years Flying Cross has connected generation after generation of customers who have helped to redefine key uniform attributes such as detailed quality craftsmanship, superior fit and harmony in function and comfort. Now, as the leading uniform manufacturer in public safety, Flying Cross continues its commitment of excellence with new product designs, advances in fabric technologies, customized solutions, and quite simply – time and care in the smallest of details.

Flying Cross reflects the unwavering devotion to duty expressed and experienced by many customers every day. For more than a century and a half, Flying Cross has been trusted to transform precision details of the uniform to the stories of courage and heroism, told and untold. We continue to be INSPIRED BY TRADITION AND TRANSFORMED BY EXCELLENCE.
