Whether you work on the racetrack, or serve food in a hotel restaurant, or work in the oil and gas industry, Automotive Workwear has the garments you need to see you through the average work day. What does your day look like? It looks like hard work, sometimes frustrating, but always rewarding. The clothes you put on before work should look professional, be comfortable, and work just as hard as you do, lasting all day long. Read on for our options that just might be a good fit for you!

On the Racetrack

Our Red Kap line of clothing is by far and wide our bestselling brand. We are the nation’s largest distributor for the brand, and quite frankly, we love this brand ourselves! Quality and practicality are high on our list of “musts” for workwear, and Red Kap delivers on both accounts. They have a long history of creating workwear “done right,” and for the last thirty or so years have focused mainly on manufacturing garments specifically for workers in the automotive industry. If you’ve ever thought to yourself “I wish I had a pocket right about here for a tire gauge,” there’s a good chance that Red Kap has already considered your request, and made a shirt with exactly what you’re looking for. Take a little time to browse through our automotive section of the website, and see if you can find the workwear you need.

The Hospitality Industry

This one is for the servers, the hotel staff, the housekeepers, and the many, many jobs that are encompassed in the hospitality industry. This job can be a thankless one, but know that we appreciate you, and hope that wearing the right clothing can make your day a little bit brighter. Our housekeeping and server garments are manufactured by Red Kap, offering that great quality and practicality that we discussed above. Convenient garments that will hold up to dozens of washings, industrial strength washings, and on-the-spot cleanings, are definitely important. Check out all our options under the “Hotel Housekeeping” and “Chef & Restaurant” categories on our website.

The Jobs that Require FR

There are a surprising number of jobs that call for flame resistant (FR) garments. The oil and gas industry is just one the many, including electrical, manufacturing, and others. Despite our name, we do sell more than just automotive workwear. Bulwark is perhaps our next most popular brand, and it is all due to the quality of their flame resistant workwear garments. Whether you need coveralls, jeans, a FR henley, or even a hoodie–or maybe just a lab coat, our Bulwark options have got you covered. Check out all the great options we have on our website. Just be sure that you are fully aware of the nature of your hazard and the HRC level you need to meet before ordering.

We carry the best in quality and practicality, giving you stylish, comfortable workwear that meets your needs on the job. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on our website, call a customer service representative and we will be happy to help you find exactly what you need.

Red Kap: Cool Facts You Didn’t Know

As the nation’s leading distributor for Red Kap workwear, we obviously love this brand’s products. We love their company history, their durable garments, the detailed features, and all the thought that goes into creating garments specifically for the automotive industry. But, as we think of all the things we love about this company, we realized that there might be quite a few things about them that you don’t know. So, with that in mind, read on to learn some cool facts about Red Kap that you probably didn’t know….

  1. Red Kap has been in business since the 1920s. They started as a small family business, selling overalls. Over time, the business grew, becoming a little more focused, until they began to focus almost all their energy on researching and creating top of the line products for the automotive industry.

  2. This company spends a lot of time in garages. Seriously. They are not just creating garments, hoping you need them; no, Red Kap is going on the racetrack, into the garage, and finding out what mechanics, gearheads, and crews really need on the job. That includes pocket placements, fabric choices, and comfortable fits.

  3. Almost all Red Kap products are designed to hold up to industrial washings. While we know many people who love to buy our products for personal use, these garments are actually designed to also be used by companies outfitting large crews. So they are making practical garments, loved by the average joe, and the large companies that outfit 50 plus employees.

  4. Red Kap is ahead of the competition. We know, you probably think we’re just saying that, but it’s true. Not only are their garments the same or better quality than the competition, but we offer the most affordable pricing. This brand is truly looking to provide workers with quality garments that will help them get the job done right. They know that charging exorbitant fees for workwear isn’t helping you, so their garments are priced just right for you to get exactly what you need.

  5. Red Kap has everything you could need. Really, they do. You need a new work shirt? Got it right here. Need some new work pants? Here you go. Oh, you really just need a lab coat? Got it covered. For real, this brand has the options you need. Belts, caps, jackets, shirts, pants, coveralls, you need it, we have it. You can find all the amazing options on our website.
