    About Us

    Work is tough, Key is tougher.

    In 1908, C.A. Lakin and Harry McKey had a vision to provide quality workwear for hardworking farmers and ranchers of America’s Great Plains. They began the Lakin-McKey Manufacturing Company in Kansas, establishing a household brand that started with a pair of bib overalls at a great value. In 1938, the founding family of Oshkosh B’Gosh purchased Lakin-McKey and shortened the name to KEY.
    Key built its reputation on manufacturing “The Nation’s Finest” work clothes. Key has maintained the quality and value that were of utmost importance to its founders, but also has adapted to the changing needs of today’s consumer. Key designs and produces apparel for men, women & children. The Key family of brands include Polar King clothes for extreme conditions, Key and Key FR (fire-resistant) workwear, and Performance Comfort line of jeans.

    Throughout the past century, Key and its employees have dedicated their lives to providing honest people with the very best clothing. They now look to the future as they continue innovating and providing you with clothing that aims to fit your lifestyle, both on and off the job.
