Chef Works, a leading provider of culinary apparel to professional chefs and home cooks alike, unveiled late last month with several additions to its broad collection of stylish apron, chef coat, and kitchen/front-of-house shirt offerings.
The line made its debut at last month’s 2015 Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival as the company outfitted all participating culinary professionals.
Building upon the 2014 launch of its highly popular Urban Collection, Chef Works introduced a variety of fashionable, yet fully functional, pieces that are highlighted by bold colors and designs; new fabrics and textures including canvas and a wet look among others; and such innovative features as added pockets for phones and tweezers, back-of-the-neck apron tabs, 2-way zippers, and stretch, mesh panels.
Highlighting the latest wave of offerings are nearly 60 new SKUs. The new lineup includes an exciting array of new aprons. Dorset Antique Wash Aprons feature an antique wash finish, adjustable neck with industrial grommets, and riveted cell phone pockets. Boulder “Wet Look” Aprons feature cotton denim fabric with a waxed finish look, towel loop and reverse fabric ties, adjustable neck with overall clips (full bib apron), double front pockets (half bistro apron), and tweezer chest pocket. Rockford Pigment Dyed Canvas Aprons feature enzyme washed canvas fabric, reinforced stress points, towel loop, and two hip pockets with saddle stitching details. Corvallis Crosshatch Aprons feature crosshatch woven fabric, reinforced stress points, adjustable neck with industrial grommets, and tweezer chest pocket. Each of the new aprons are available in multiple coordinating styles and colors.
Chef Works latest includes a trio of much anticipated shirts. (note: the first is a coat)
The Hartford (Essential) “Lite” Twill Chef Coat with Zipper features a poly/cotton “lite” twill fabric, Cool Vent™ sides and side seam slits, 2-way separating zipper, roll-up long sleeves with tab, back collar apron holder with engraved snap tab, and rounded thermometer and cell phone/notebook sleeve pockets. It is available in men’s and women’s.
The company’s Trenton Long-Sleeve Shirt (Front-of-House and Back-of-House) featuring sanded distressed wash, back and front yokes, roll-up long sleeves with snap tab, pearl top metal snaps, and thermometer and cell phone/notebook sleeve pockets. The Women’s Server Shirt with Zip and Knit featuring stretch knit side panels, 2-way separating zipper, back yoke, and double needle topstitching.
Commenting on the new product offerings, Chef Works Marketing Director Amanda Stuckey stated, “Culinary and hospitality apparel is no longer just about functionality; it’s also about presenting your staff in a way that truly reflects the individuality of your restaurant or culinary business.
