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.
