For over a century, Spiewak has built a reputation as one of the leading producers of safety apparel, EMS protective gear, uniforms for private businesses and government agencies, and outerwear. This Brooklyn-based brand was founded by Issac Spiewak in 1904, shortly after he emigrated from Poland. Originally known for making sheepskin vests, Spiewak began producing wool coats and breeches for the U.S. Army during World War I. Today, Spiewak's authentic industrial line is worn by thousands of fire, police, and EMS agencies worldwide. In addition to uniforms, Spiewak has also become increasingly involved in manufacturing outerwear, and its jackets and coats maintain the same high standards of quality that Spiewak products have held for over a hundred years.
