Congratulations on your continued success. I have 3 Hinchman racing uniforms. Quality workmanship, great company, great people. One of my uniforms had to be cut off after a violent crash. With a fractured shoulder and a concussion - my only worry was that the medical personnel were going to cut up my uniform.... I couldn't throw it away eventhough it is now in shreads. Now retired from racing -still have my Hinchmans'.

Extremely nice people, and it's great to be able to go to a local manufacturer to get service when you need it. Sure beats mailing your suit to Texas or California or Mexico for adjustment. The first job of the suit is to protect the wearer, the second is to make the wearer look good for sponsors and the wearer's self image. Hinchmans lead the way.

I remember when Dad made the first Nomex race suit. It was shortly after Eddie Sachs was killed in a fiery accident on the main straightaway at Indy. Dupont had just developed a new fabric that was a major breakthrough in fireproof clothing. The majority of their first production went to the Navy for flight suit manufacturing, and Dupont sold a small amount to Dad. Hence the first Nomex race suit was fabricated.

I have worn a Hinchman racing one piece suit and have had that suit since 1976 and still have it today and was very comfortable. It is time for me to get another suit after all these years. The suit is a silk natural colored suit and I don't think you can buy a better suit today.
