Saving Private Ryan
This was our first feature film work experience and we were blessed to
have worked on it. It was a tremendous task to manufacture and
outfit an entire infantry battalion in less than a month and half.
Our hard work is on the screen for all to enjoy. Products supplied
were US Army regular infantry uniforms.
The Thin Red Line
We worked on this film simultaneously
with Saving Private Ryan. For this feature we supplied numerous
large and small canvas tents. These ranged from small shelter
halves to the enormous hospital ward tents. The encampment scenes
in this film demonstrate the magnitude of our tent making capabilities.
We enjoyed the pleasure of
making Army officer's B4 bags and Aviator Kit bags for this film.
This was a small project for us but we proved our skills in this
production. A very romantic American story.
We became involved in making the
Girene 782 gear with this production. This was a massive movie and
making the gear was no small task. We made for them everything from
small pouches to full pack sets including shelter halves and sea bags.
Band of Brothers, HBO Series
Our humble appearance was made in this
production with a camouflage parachute canopy used in various scenes of
episode 3 "Carentan". This was our first experience in replica
This was a small scale production that
was released for the 2002 Christmas season on the Hallmark Channel.
This was a touching story about a German women and her children caught
in the midst of the fighting during the Battle of the Bulge December
1944. We supplied the GI uniforms for this production.
We Were Soldiers, Once And Young
Though this was not a WWII era
storyline the movie does open with a sequence depicting French
paratroops in the intervening years of the French Indochina war.
These French soldiers were wearing surplus US Army camouflage
HBT uniforms. The costume designer knew exactly who to call upon
to supply the HBT camo fatigues and we were pleased to provide them.
The Good German
Tobey Maquire is wearing our US Army
wool ODs in this production. We sold the wardrobe dept. wool
elastique for Geoge Clooney's officer's pinks and greens. Though
this film was released in black and white our quality shows through.
The Company, Part II, Bay of Pigs Episode
We were very excited to supply the
camouflage and dark shade fatigues used in the 2nd episode of "The
Company". This part of the mini-series focused on the CIA's involvement in the failed
Bay of Pigs operation. This production is the first and thus far
only dedicated film depiction of the Cuban ex-patriots attempting to take back
their land for freedom and democracy. We were proud to take part.
Flags Of Our Fathers
Our products played a small role on
the heads and feet of the main characters of this production. We
supplied a small number of field jackets, utility caps, and boondockers
to this film. Even the director Clint Eastwood was wearing our cap
on the set while filming.
Che Part I: The Cuban Revolution / Che Part II: The Argentine
Fighters on both sides of the Cuban
revolution wore US Government surplus uniforms and equipment in the
early 1960s. The costume dept came to us seeking accurate uniforms
for their depictions of both the guerillas and government soldiers.
Politics aside, this is an example of how US WWII mobilization efforts
made an effect decades after WWII. It was also an example of how
diverse our products and services can be utilized.
The Pacific, HBO Series
This production approached us looking
for replicas of the rubberized jungle hammocks, camouflage shelter
halves, and early USMC tan shelter halves. We had not made the
prior to then but knew that we were well qualified for the job.
These items are well depicted on episode 4 "Gloucester/Pavuvu/Banika"
during the torrential rain jungle sequences. We also outfitted
Senior Military advisors Dale and Julia Dye during this production.
Our replica parachuting products were
requested for some of the drop sequences of this film. We supplied
aerial delivery containers.
showroom had a visit from an associate
producer for an exciting upcoming action film about WWII Sherman Tankers.
The movie is
called "Fury" starring Bradd Pitt, Shia Lebough, Jon Bernthal, Michael
Pena, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, and other top tier actors. They
loved our quality so much that they hired us on the spot to outfit the
main characters! We are exciting to be a part of this production.

Manhattan, WGN America Series
There is a new miniseries filmed about the Manhattan project to build

products are already being of service to them.
