Stokes International is pleased to serve the needs of the public safety community with uniforms that are high quality, suitable, and adaptable for police, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel. We have been serving the public safety workforce since 1949 from our home base in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The founder, W.S. “Bill” Stokes, set the bar high when he started Stokes International after having served his country during World War I. He strove for the best in quality, customer service, and business methods—a tradition that continues to this day. A number of Stokes family members have worked in the family business through the years, showing loyalty and the importance of relationships.
Get to Know the Uniform Pants
Our uniform pants come in two styles: twill and cargo. The twill fabric is made of 65 percent premium polyester and 35 percent cotton. Our uniform pants are suitable as police uniform pants, EMS uniform pants, and firefighter uniform pants. They are sturdy, comfortable, designed for convenience, and can retain their sharp, crisp, professional look even after repeated washings.
For convenience and a uniform appearance when finding clothing for your force, all of our uniform pants come in LAPD dark navy blue. A couple of the styles also come in black or gray for added versatility in your force. All uniform pants are unhemmed so they can be fitted to the individual wearer, ensuring that professional appearance.
Exploring Styles in More Detail
Firefighter uniform pants, EMS uniform pants, and police uniform pants are all available in twill and deluxe twill fabrics. Most styles have two front deep-slanted pockets and two welt pockets on the back with button closers. The deluxe twill pants also feature a front coin pocket and a rubberized waistband. These pants are suitable for both men and women due to their unisex design.
Our EMS uniform pants are specially designed for comfort, durability, and usefulness. The flexible anti-slip waistband provides comfort when bending or stretching, yet stays in place for secure modesty. The heavy-duty twill fabric stands up to repeated washings and retains its crisp look despite repeated wear. The knees are double-layered for extra strength. Shirts stay tucked in neatly thanks to the internal gripper panel. The pants feature hook-and-eye closures that are sturdy and secure.
The EMS uniform station pants have all the features of the standard EMS uniform pants, but have an added Teflon coating that repels soil, liquids, and stains. YKK zippers augment the hook-and-eye closure. As with other uniform pants, both styles are suitable for men and women.
Examining Our Cargo Pants
The deluxe cargo pants are similar to the twill pants but are sized differently for men and women. They have a cargo pocket on each right and left side seam that is secured by a Velcro flap. These pants feature an expandable waist at the center back and a rubberized waistband with belt loops. Two front slant pockets are bar-tacked for added durability. These pants are ideal EMS uniform pants and firefighter uniform pants due to their style and durability.
Particularly suitable as police uniform pants and firefighter uniform pants, you will find the deluxe cargo pants, which have a grosgrain black ribbon strip down the outside of each pant leg. A silver 3M Scotchlite Reflective Tape strip on the outside leg seams helps enhance visibility in dark or semi-dark conditions. These reflective strips are available in either 0.5-inch or 1-inch-wide strips. These pants are dry-clean only. They also have the two cargo pockets, two front slant pockets, and two back pockets with Velcro flaps. The waistband has an expandable back and is rubberized.
For heightened visibility under foggy, cloudy, dark, or any other poor-visibility situations, choose the deluxe Hi Vis cargo pants. These pants feature a 2-inch-wide 3M Scotchlite Reflective horizontal strip on the pant legs at or just below knee level, plus another 2-inch-wide strip at the center of each of the cargo pockets. If desired, the reflective strip on the cargo pocket can be hidden inside the pocket. The Hi Vis pants are outfitted with all of the great features of the other uniform pants, including a metal zipper front fly and secured waistband belt loops. These pants are dry-clean only.
