    Default Bunker Coat "Tail" needed

    Hi All - first, I'm new to the site, so I apologize if this is in the wrong area.

    I'm getting ready for the Academy in the upcoming months and recently purchased my bunker gear. I have a set of Cairns RS-1. The coat has the detachable "tail" with a company name already sewn. I've searched high and low in the internet for a company that can replace the current lettering with my last name or even a place I can order a new custom tail for an RS-1 coat. Does anyone have any sites or suggestions to modify the current coat tail or a vendor that customizes these tails for special order?

    Thanks for your help!

    Tom

    Look on Globe's website (they mfg. the Cairns gear) and find a dealer near you. Or they might be able to help you themselves.

    While i know Globe can make what you want, i can tell you it will not be quick.

    If you are in a rush, you need to find a tailor who works on fire gear. Most big companies will do rush work for small items. As has been mentioned, Shamrock could likley do it for you quickly. Another place is freds2therescue.com (he is a member here and a great guy), Trilex Cleaners (Nice stuff but pricey). Here is a link for them that actually has what you want listed:

    http://www.trilexcleanfiregear.com/5743.html

    Scroll down a bit and look where it says:
