The iconic Crew Shirt was previously available in seven racing-inspired color-block patterns, including the newly launched charcoal/orange and black/lime styles. The new black and charcoal versions offer a more traditional alternative to the modern color-block options.
The Crew Shirt is packed with premium features meant to enhance daily performance while maintaining all-day comfort. For example, Red Kap’s exclusive ripstop fabric is lightweight yet breathable and 75% stronger than other poplin workwear fabrics on the market. Plus, Touchtex fabric technology resists stains, improves moisture wicking to keep the wearer cool and dry and retains color for a vibrant, clean appearance wash after wash.
Spending time in garages with mechanics helped the Red Kap design team develop innovative features like a sleeve pocket that keeps small tools and pens within reach and covered buttons to keep paint jobs protected. The color block design strategically places darker colors in areas that most frequently come into contact with grease, oil and grime, helping mask stains until the next wash. Plus, it is engineered to maintain its integrity after multiple washings in industrial-grade laundry facilities, helping extend the life of the garment even in the most rigorous working conditions.
Testing with real-world mechanics produced positive results. More than 85% of those surveyed preferred the Crew Shirt over their existing work shirt, which explains the shirt’s undeniable success with auto pros.
Red Kap remains dedicated to bringing fresh, innovative workwear to the auto industry, further cementing its standing as the automotive image expert. Find a complete listing of Red Kap Distributors here.
