As pilots you’ve worked hard to get where you are, and we believe your uniform should honor your journey. We want our uniforms to promote an image of astute professionalism.
A key element of achieving these goals is providing our customers with proper fitting pieces. Our customers appreciate customization options as well as a large selection of fit choices that result in a comfortable and better looking uniform.
We cannot achieve our goal of being your long term source for uniforms unless we also work continuously to source quality fabric, trims, and sewing workshops. The focus here is consistency, durability, and comfort.
I flew at Skywest for 13 years before hanging up my headset in 2012. By then, the demands of being a father, business operator, and pilot had become too much to juggle and still enjoy. Yeah, I miss it. The variety of days and people I flew with made it an adventure. My motivations for making a change were stagnant movement through the 2000s, my struggles with sleep issues, and my long term desire to start a company.
I had always found our uniforms lacking and saw this as an opportunity. I began compiling a list of complaints among friends and came up with some viable improvements like the Cool and Dry Collar, multiple fit levels, and thoughtful design that would result in something significantly better. Combine these elements with personalized and fair customer service and I felt we had a good chance for success. I ran the business out of our garage in Los Angeles for almost three years over which time we gradually grew until we had two employees, a couple sewing machines, and a sign on the front of the house telling customers to "come on back." In 2011, my wife and I packed up two of those rented orange diesel powered wagons for the Denver area, rented a commercial space and my wife had her bathroom back. Since then, we have grown steadily and now have a full show room that offers you a chance to try on our different selections and have items customized while you wait.
I’m still waiting for the “cruise” segment of this journey but I enjoy continually finding ways to improve our products and services and keep raising the bar to the benefit of our customers, our team, and our families.
We look forward to serving you for years to come.
