An American Tradition Since 1842

Vertx Flying Cross Justin FR


Celebrating 175 years Of Excellence

Fechheimer Brothers Company, began the journey of manufacturing the world’s most trusted uniforms for public safety in 1842. Solomon “Samuel” Fechheimer, a German immigrant, opened a small dry goods store in Cincinnati, OH. Samuel combined adventure and passion, seeking out opportunities to grow his business and give back through his trade. With the beginning of the Civil War, Samuel honed his 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 Fechheimers’ commitment to innovation by standardizing men’s uniform sizes for the first time ever in American history. Since that time, Fechheimer’s Flying Cross brand 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, Fechheimer has translated this history of heroism and extraordinary accomplishment to the many customers it serves today.

For years the Flying Cross brand 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, Fechheimer 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 175 years, Fechheimer has been trusted to transform precision details of Flying Cross uniforms to the stories of courage and heroism, told and untold. The company continues to be INSPIRED BY TRADITION AND TRANSFORMED BY EXCELLENCE.
