The Difference is Originality.
It only takes one look to see where modern performance wear began and where it's headed. The “image revolution” for modern marching bands started with Michael J. Cesario. By now, the story has a familiar ring to it. A Broadway, Television, and Theatre Costume Designer combines his talents with his passion for marching
music, adds a career in teaching, and earns a slew of awards...Signature Sinfonian, Professor Emeritus, Drum Corps International Hall of Fame.... and popularizes a new era in what modern Bands look like. To this day, his design authenticity provides the industry with new concepts and vibrant energy. Without question, The Original.

Scott Winters
From the original Cesario illustration, to Scott’s computer screen, to final printed piece, it’s more than just a uniform
... It's Imagination. It's Art.
Scott has a long history with the Miller family, from performing with the Miller Blackhawks Winterguard, to teaching FJM Summer Clinics, to working alongside Mike and Mark Miller with the Miamisburg High School Band and Guard. A graduate of the University of Dayton with a Bachelor in Fine Arts Degree, Scott became a partner in a major Dayton advertising firm as Director of Client Services.
Returning to FJM in the fall of 2008, his first priority became a complete corporate re-branding, creating the memorable “spinning flag” logo we've all come to recognize. Scott is the creative mind behind the "look" of the FJM catalogs, supplements, and website. In addition to award-winning print and advertising work, Scott also works alongside designers Michael Cesario, Byron Valentine, and Scott Chandler in creating custom artwork files for marching band, colorguard, and drumline uniforms, and custom printed flags.
Still active in pageantry, Scott recently returned to Miamisburg High School as the Colorguard Director. Miamisburg resumed their WGI Scholastic World Class Finalist status at the 2014 World Championships.
Care Instructions

It is suggested to have a committee that takes care of garments. Divide the garments for washing among several parents who will use the same washing procedure to ensure correct care. If you use a professional cleaner – please give them these same instructions. It is not necessary to wash uniforms before wearing them. Avoid washing bib pants and jackets together! Never wash in hot water! Use only non-chlorine household laundry detergent.

NOTE: Always test wash one garment before the entire set. Water in different regions of the country can sometimes react differently in combination with different detergents and fabrics.

Fred J. Miller, Inc. turned to America’s most prominent fabric mill, Milliken and Company, and its most famous product, Visa fabrics, to secure the latest in fabric technology for its trademark Cesario Collection.

Outcomes from the latest rounds of testing provided FJM with the superior fabric it demanded, and proved that the Visa System 3 outperforms the claims of every other fabric being used in uniforms today. Ounce for ounce, this rugged, durable, and comfortable fabric outscores any competitor for moisture management and stain release.  And yet, it is woven in a classic 11.5 ounce gabardine, perfectly suited for the tailored fit and crisp good looks demanded by the top Bands and Drum & Bugle Corps who rely on the Image Makers at FJM. As highly-rated innovators of American performance fabric, venerable Milliken Mills of Spartanburg, SC. engineered the patented VISA System 3 to provide superior, permanent comfort, soil release and moisture management unrivaled in the industry.

Here are the reasons FJM chose to go with the leader.
Comfort – The VISA System 3 fabrics’ smooth feel is the result of patented technology, engineered for high performance characteristics. In addition, the softness is permanent and consistent, even after multiple washings. In recent testing, 4 out of 5 uniform industry experts preferred VISA System 3 to nano -treated garments when it came to softness. And wash after wash VISA System 3 garments by FJM retain their resilience and colorfastness, while maintaining it’s breathability in all climate conditions.

Stain Release – The VISA System 3 is able to handle tough oil stains that are normally very difficult to get out. This is due to a patented process directly applied to the fabric, which also prevents spreading and redisposition. Tests showed that remarkable VISA System 3 is up to 4 times better than nano-treated fabrics in regards to stain release.

Moisture Management – The Visa System 3 comes with a superior drying rate. In moisture transport, VISA System 3 has shown to be 7 times faster than nano-treated fabric, while drying at a rate 33% faster.

Wicking Capabilities – The Visa System 3 fabric transports moisture and sweat away from the performers skin. Keeping them dry and comfortable.

The custom, washable uniforms of the Cesario Collection have gained recognition for athletic comfort, distinctive good looks and enduring performance. And FJM’s ongoing relationship with Milliken Mills guarantees the most sophisticated Visa fabrics available.
