There are many challenges that a chef faces in the kitchen, on top of working long hours, nights and weekends. Chefs are constantly on their feet perfecting their craft, no matter rain or shine, to make sure customers are satisfied with every bite.
That means you need chef uniforms that can support your busy lifestyles. We’re talking uniforms that bring comfort, durability and style to the plate! (Chefs like to look good too, you know).
So, what’s considered a ‘good’ chef uniform? What features should your chef uniform have? We checked out ChefUniforms.com and all the chef apparel that they have to offer and compiled some of our favorite collections and categories for men and women including chef coats, pants, aprons and shoes.
If you’re looking for a durable chef uniform without breaking the bank, we suggest Chef Uniform’s exclusive On The Line Collection (pictured at top). The collection is made of soft, lightweight fabrics and feature fade-resistant colors available in classic black or white and new pebble grey. You can also find chef hats, aprons, pants and coats in both short and long sleeves.
Newer to Chef Uniforms is their exclusive Industry Line collection for men and women – a modern approach to kitchen uniforms. The Industry Line includes chef coats, shirts, and aprons made with premium denim cotton, chambray, denim and more.
We all know that the kitchen can get hot – after all, you’re cooking up some great grub. If you’re looking to stay cool, we recommend Chef Uniforms’ mesh and lightweight coats. The mesh coats are available for men and women in short, ¾ and long sleeves in more than eight color combinations!
However, if you do prefer to wear a traditional chef coat and long sleeves to protect you from spills in the kitchen, Chef Uniforms’ selection of knotted button coats are also ideal for durability and comfort. Their hand-rolled buttons won’t sag or lose form. The traditional coats are crafted from 65/35 Poly/Cotton or 100% Cotton.
Let’s talk chef pants, a kitchen essential to complete your chef outfit. Whether you prefer to wear traditional baggy pants, joggers or stretch, we know that their wide assortment of styles will help you find your perfect pair. Want to add a little boldness to your everyday style? Chef Uniforms offers fun, printed chef pants for men and women. There’s everything from stripes, houndstooth and animal prints!
Aprons – defenders of uniforms and keeper of tools. Chef Uniforms offers chef aprons such as bib, butcher, waist and bistro aprons in different fabrics including soft chambray and 100% cotton. We know that everyone has different ways to wear their apron while cooking, so we were happy to see that they have adjustable strap aprons and customizable color options! You can even personalize your look with embroidery such as stock designs, unique fonts and customized logos.
A chef uniform would not be complete without chef shoes. You can browse Chef Uniforms’ assortment of restaurant work shoes for both men and women. There are clogs for the traditional chef look or athletic footwear to support your fast-paced working environment. Make sure to watch your step! Chef Uniforms has slip-resistant styles available to ensure your safety while you’re perfecting your culinary magic.
