VF Imagewear, makers of Red Kap brand work clothes, has released a YouTube video featuring Performance Plus Tires, Long Beach, Calif., to promote its newly launched work pants and shorts designed specifically for tire and automotive technicians, Performance Shop Pants and Shorts.

“At Red Kap, we aim to keep our customers equipped with the best gear available,” says Chris Holcombe, vice president and general manager of Distributor Brands, Red Kap.

“The new Red Kap Performance Shop Pants and Shorts provide the world’s mechanics, auto techs and gearheads with a comfortable, reliable product packed with features made specifically to handle grueling work in the garage.”

Red Kap Performance Shop Pants feature a covered waistband button that prevents scratches and keeps paint jobs protected. Specialty pockets come standard as storage for tools, diagnostic equipment and phones of all shapes and sizes, keeping everything well within reach.

The strategically designed Reinforced Double Knees bend and flex easily while providing extra durability for days filled with the constant up and under movements common to mechanics and techs. The invisible stretch waistband accommodates size fluctuations by comfortably expanding up to three additional inches, and the relaxed fit leg fits easily over the tops of work boots.

Red Kap Performance Shop Shorts feature have many of the same features of the pants and are garage-tested and full of auto-specific features like an inseam gusset that offers a roomier fit, allowing mechanics to move from under the hood to under the chassis in a pinch without the pinch.

They are styled to fit like a relaxed jean while offering the professional look and design detailing of a dependable work pant. Plus, the 13-inch inseam provides a retail-inspired, modern look making these the perfect shorts to wear for work and the kid’s soccer game or dinner with friends after calling it a day, notes Red Kap.
