Red Kap Automotive Crew Shirt: Designed by Mechanics

Red Kap Automotive Crew Shirts

Let’s be honest. Having the right shirt to wear is far less important to an auto mechanic than having the right tools. So we’re not going to tell you any different. But why wear something you hate, when you could wear something you love? Especially when it’s something that can help you do your job better? Lately, Red Kap has been on a mission, visiting more and more auto shops and car enthusiasts to develop products that are right for the people that use them.

Red Kap’s workwear designers visited 30 automotive shops and dealers. They talked to everyone – from small two-man garages, to large dealers. They watched, they observed, they asked questions, and most importantly, they listened. They gathered feedback, and that feedback was pretty interesting stuff. What Red Kap’s workwear designers discovered is that technicians and mechanics might not know exactly what they want, but they certainly know what they don’t want. And they sure react to a good idea when they see it. Continue Reading…

Carhartt Men’s Carlux Hooded Sweatshirts Are Back

Men's Carhartt Carlux Sweatshirts To its owner, a hooded sweatshirt is a lot of things. It’s comfort wear. It’s work wear. It’s keep-you-warm-in-the-cold wear. It’s sit-around-the-house-cause-it’s-the-weekend wear. Come to think of it, it’s even been the star of a Saturday Night Live skit. (Red-hooded variety only). Odds are, you’ve never stopped to think about what it is about a sweatshirt that makes it the perfect attire for any occasion. (OK, not any occasion; if your friend is getting married, you might want to opt for something a little more formal). But if you ever did have some time to kill, and thought about it, you’d realize that it’s actually a combination of several things that makes a hooded sweatshirt such a glamorously simple garment. It’s the comfort. It’s the flexibility. It’s the durability. And it’s the warmth, which they somehow manage to pull off without the added bulk. And nobody does that better than Carhartt.

June 8, 2012


The St. Joseph Valley Building Trades, the South Bend Maennerchor Club and the Working Person’s Store of Lakeville will once Again Raise Awareness and Dollars for Diabetes Research With A Full Day of Fun and Music

(South Bend, IN)  Saturday June 16 the St. Joseph Valley Building Trades in conjunction with the Working Person’s Store will conduct their 26th Annual “D.A.D.S (Dollars Against Diabetes) Day” fundraiser. As in the past eleven years, a portion of that fund raising will be generated by  a Motorcycle Poker Run traversing area roads, towns and businesses with its start/ finish at The South Bend Maennerchor Club, 219 North Sycamore Street. (b/t LaSalle and Colfax) The Poker Run will see the first motorcycle leaving the Club grounds at 10AM with all participants returning no later than 5PM. A contribution of $20.00 purchases the ride opportunity, a commemorative tee-shirt, ball cap and Snoopy Pin (the national mascot of DAD’s Day!) and of course entry into the “after party”! This event also welcomes all others interested in supporting the cause by requesting a $5.00 donation at the door after 4:00PM. Live music will be provided beginning at 4:30PM and continue throughout the afternoon and evening at the Club Grounds. Food and refreshments will be available with a beer garden also on site.

Last year’s local “DADS Day” efforts raised nearly $9,000 which was added to the National Building Trades campaign with its mission- “Find a cure for Diabetes!” All proceeds generated, both locally and nationally, go directly to the Diabetes Research Institute- University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine,Miami,Florida.

For more information regarding the event contact the Building Trades at 574.23BUILD (574.232.8453)/ go to and click on “Special Events” or visit to learn about the national programs helping to fund Diabetes Research.
