FLYING CROSS ® - YOUR OFFICIAL MANUFACTURER OF THE ARMY GREEN SERVICE UNIFORM
Uniforms have gone through many changes over the course of our country's history, but Flying Cross has been a steady and reliable partner for almost two centuries of that time. With this unparalleled depth of experience, we have honed the craft of producing and delivering precision-fit uniforms with great care and attention-to-detail. Throughout our decades of service to those who serve, our uniforms have embodied values of duty, honor and heritage and have been proudly worn by our nation’s defenders.
We continue to respect that sacred trust and tradition with the U.S. Army’s most recent uniform program – the Army Green Service Uniform (AGSU).
The AGSU reflects the iconic ‘Pinks and Greens’ uniform worn by America’s ‘Greatest Generation’ during World War II, and Flying Cross has worked closely with the U.S. Army to manufacture a head-to-toe solution that delivers the historically-authentic look, with the professional, functional features required by the modern Soldier.
