The Colts Youth Organization and Fruhauf Uniforms are excited to announce a partnership for 2019 and beyond. The Colts will exclusively wear Fruhauf uniforms, becoming the third Drum Corps International World Class corps to do so. The Fruhauf team will work closely with the Colts design team to bring a unique and memorable uniform to the field every year, made possible by the unparalleled Fruhauf level of service. The Colt Cadets will begin wearing Fruhauf uniforms in 2020, becoming the first Open Class corps to do so. Click here to learn more about Fruhauf Uniforms.

"From our very first meeting with the Fruhauf team — Richard, Kenny, and Landon — we felt immediately at home,” said Colts Executive Director Jeff MacFarlane. “To be honest, their history and legacy in the uniform industry was a bit of a surprise to me. But their vision for creating pieces that work in tandem with the corps program designers feels very fresh to me. The move to Fruhauf opens up an opportunity for the Colts to begin a new era in our long, drum corps history.”

"I am ecstatic about our partnership with Fruhauf!" said Colts Director Vicki MacFarlane. "While I have always admired their work, their attention to detail and care of employees stood out to me on our initial visit. Their capability and capacity to fulfill visions in-house is amazing and uncommon. Their designers have an ability to combine modern methods with traditional looks; every experience is one of a kind. We look forward to an incredible partnership that ultimately benefits each and every member that wears the Fruhauf name."

“On behalf of the entire Fruhauf family, we could not be more excited about partnering with an organization who is dedicated to life on the field, excellence in music education, and an unwavering passion for the arts. We are proud to welcome the Colts to the Fruhauf Family!”
