Default Fed Ex Pilot Shirts

Fed Ex folks, what is the brand of pilot shirts that you wear. The brand that has the flap sewn in to the front of the pocket.

Thanks,

We're not very standardized with shirts. We have a fairly large list of approved vendors. Some of those vendors, including our local uniform store in MEM, offered multiple brands of shirts so there is not one specific brand. We also have the option to go to approved tailors in Hong Kong. Landerwood and A Cut Above are also on the list.

All sources offer multiple options including operable pocket flaps or the ones sewed down. I prefer the sewn flap/open top pocket. Lifting that flap to get my passport out is a pain.

I've tried just about all our options and decided I prefer A Cut Above. Less than $30, excellent quality, lots of fit options, padded collar.

I believe "A Cut Above" offers the shirts you're talking about. Google them.

You definitely want A Cut Above. They are. Their shirts are far better than any I've tried for about the same price. FYI- if you're a Fedex pilot they're indeed approved/reimbursable, but shipping (~$9/package), is ironically not. Ridiculous (I brought it up to my rep that "shipping is not a uniform item" is not a logical argument when you have to mail order said uniform item), but just a head's up. UFB some of the things Fedex will nickel and dime.
