The A+ Career Apparel Story

A+ Career Apparel (formerly known as SFKM), is a privately held business established in 1973 with roots dating back to the 1930s.  We quickly became one of the leading manufacturers of adult apparel after conquering the American school uniform market with superior quality, outstanding service, consistency and in-depth inventory. “Our vision is to provide unsurpassed quality, service and value to our customers at competitive prices.”

A+ continually strives to develop, implement and enhance our technologies and infrastructure pursuant to the needs of our customers and the end-users. Whether it’s our state-of-the-art operating systems and business-to-business (B2B) information technologies, to friendly and knowledgeable A+ representatives, to helpful drop-ship offerings, to the most comfortable, durable and fashionable products, we’ve got it.

A+ is more than just a name; it’s a promise we take seriously.  A+ Career Apparel, headquartered in Burlingame, California with manufacturing in Star City, Arkansas, keeps the workplace looking good and feeling great. A+ is a one-stop-shop for career, postal, custom, and school uniforms. We maintain our lead as the premier manufacturer because of our attention to detail and unwavering customer support. The A+ people, along with the love and care we build into every single product and partnership, is why A+ is simply the best.


For 40 years, A+ Career Apparel has been building stronger communities nationwide.  Not only do we participate in philanthropic and volunteer events and organizations, we encourage our employees to do the same. Additional time, money and energy is directed to smaller and larger non-profit organizations.  We are honored and happy to contribute.  We also have a deep love for our global community of peers and partners, and we actively contribute to many worthwhile causes, include No Kid Hungry, various cancer, heart, special needs, and veteran organizations, environmental and wildlife agencies, and SPCA.  Just to name a few.


Corporate Responsibility


Working Conditions - Code of Conduct

We’re fiercely loyal. That’s why we will not give up our U.S.-based manufacturing and fulfillment facility in Star City, Arkansas. While others may only be driven by bottom-line profits, we continue to invest in American jobs and the American economy. We love people, and our 200+ domestic employees are an integral part of the A+ Family. Domestic production provides us with a competitive advantage when it comes to customization and the ability to quickly fill products and inventories.Our social responsibility to the working conditions of our employees, whether in the U.S. or off-shore, never wavers. We are concerned about human dignity and have gone to great lengths to promote the well-being of our workers, worldwide. While factories throughout the world operate in different legal and cultural environments, our Working Conditions/Code of Conduct Policy sets forth the requirements that all factories must meet, as a condition of doing business with us. A+ Career Apparel will not support anything that compromises this Policy by infringing upon the human rights of any individual.

Product Safety and Guarantee


A+ Career Apparel products are manufactured with the wearer in mind. Our garments are designed for the easiest care and constructed with maximum durability and comfort. We are so sure of our quality that we offer our exclusive Wear-Tested™ Guarantee. If any garment does not stand up to one year of normal wear, we’ll replace it. It’s that simple.
A+ Career Apparel takes product safety laws and compliance measures into great consideration when purchasing fabric, yarn, thread and any other raw material used in our goods. When a new product is adopted that utilizes a new fabric, we require a letter of certification that confirms the product meets all appropriate Consumer Safety Laws and Regulations. All current A+ products are certified by the U.S. Government’s Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) requirements for apparel, which also includes flammability.
