Marlow White's swords and sabers have ceremonial blades. As such, they are built to strict military regulations to be used in drills, ceremonies, and displays. These blades are of the highest quality but are not sharpened for use as a weapon.
Agency Purchase Process
One of the keys to our service is communication. This page presents the general purchase process that has worked well for many public safety organizations. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our First Responder Department.
We provide service and support to each Department that is ordering Honor Guard or Dress Uniforms. As you work through the following steps, feel free to send us an e-mail or call us with any questions you have. If you are seeking a uniform not listed as a stock option please contact us by telephone or email.

Choose Trousers and Braid Options
Once you have selected your coat style, deciding on trousers should be fairly straightforward. Typically most organizations go with the same trouser to match their coat selection, though we can do custom fabrics and colors if desired. Visit our Dress Uniform Trousers page for more information.
Choose Uniform Accessories
We offer a large selection of Uniform Accessories:
Choose Alteration and Fitting Options
We are very concerned with how your uniforms fit and offer two fitting options. The most common method is to have you fill out a basic measurement spreadsheet that we provide. We will review the information and make recommendations on coat and trouser sizes. We will then send you try-on sets to confirm the fit.
Our second fitting option is used for larger uniform orders of thirty or more members. In this instance it can be more economical to send one of our staff to fit your department. Typically our staff will need at least four weeks of advanced notice to schedule a date that works for both parties.
Marlow White has an experienced group of tailors and offers in-house alterations at an additional charge. Using us for alterations will typically extend our delivery time two weeks.
When you have a rough idea of what you are interested in, compile the information in an e-mail (First Responder Department) and send it to us for a quotation. We will review and respond to your message via phone or e-mail, followed with a quote. The general information we need:
- Coat Style, Color, and Fabric
- Trousers and Braid
- Coat Options
- Quantity of uniforms
- Wear Date
