McCormick's Marching Uniform: March Forward, It's time to advance your uniforms.
Why do schools buy marching uniforms every 8-12 years? Because they cost so much.
Marching band uniforms are expensive. New uniforms are a significant outlay. Given the magnitude of the purchase, many programs need school board approval and undertake laborious fundraising efforts.
McCormick's marching band uniforms are under $200. You heard that right. Outfit your entire band in a marching top, bibbers, hip cape, and shako cover for under $200 per performer. Just imagine the cost savings and where you can invest those dollars in other parts of your program.
Traditional marching band uniforms are restrictive. Don’t compromise on your program design. Designs have to be risk mitigated - no band director wants to be the one responsible for buying uniforms that were on trend the first few years but looked dated before it’s time to replace them.
McCormick's marching band uniforms are expandable. Add a hip cape, gauntlet, or shako cover to change up your look at a fraction of the cost. Need to do a quick design refresh or last minute program enhancement? No worries, you can add or replace uniforms in only 8 weeks.

Traditional marching band uniforms are limited visually. Directors and designers have to compromise their vision. There are a limited amount of colors and fabrics to choose from.
McCormick's marching band uniforms have infinite possibilities. Thanks to the technical advances of dye sublimation, designers are no longer limited to fabric color swatches. Any color or combination of colors and designs can be created on demand.
Traditional marching band uniforms are hard to care for. Traditional uniforms require volunteers and expensive dry cleaning bills.
Have your students or band parents take their uniform home to wash it. Our uniform is made of a premium spandex fabric that is machine-washable, even with the shoulder pads on.







Breaking the Cycle: A New Type of Uniform Fabric-on-fabric construction is not the only way to produce a band uniform. Digital printing technology has enabled more advanced, faster, and less expensive systems and is capable of yielding a better uniform at half the cost. At McCormick’s we use our advanced digital printing technology to create dye sublimated garments that are vibrant, comfortable, fast to produce, and capable of incorporating design detail not previously possible.
