About Us

Based in Philadelphia, FlynnO’Hara Uniforms is the nation’s premier provider of high-quality school uniforms, medical attire, and gym wear. We are family owned-and-operated, outfitting over half a million students from 1500+ schools each year.
Our story begins in 1972 when two friends, Ed Flynn & Ned O’Hara, recognized the need for a different kind of school uniform program: one that would provide superior products and a convenient year-round shopping experience to both partner schools and their families. Fifty years later, we are proud to outfit almost half a million students from 1500+ private, religious, and charter schools throughout the United States.

Though we’ve updated our products, strengthened our infrastructure, opened 34 retail stores, launched an ecommerce business, and developed new technology to support our customers, we credit our success to the relationships we’ve fostered with our schools and families since we first opened our doors. Our 98% partner school retention rate is a testament to the trust we’ve built with these communities.

At FlynnO’Hara, we believe that a school uniform is so much more than just the clothes on a student’s back. The uniform represents community and provides a sense of belonging; it eliminates one extra decision in a day already packed with important choices. Even more critical, the school uniform levels the playing field, eliminating the physical manifestation of socioeconomic differences – allowing students, instead, to focus on what’s important: their education & personal growth.

For some of our customers, the world of school uniforms is new and unfamiliar; for others, a generational right-of-passage. Whether this is your first time shopping with us or your fiftieth, we’re here to make the experience an easy one. We welcome you to the FlynnO’Hara family, and cannot wait to grow with you in the years ahead.
