Chef’s Uniforms Style Guide

Safety and comfort first 

We don’t stray away from the essential make-up of the classic chef jacket for good reason. All our jackets are double breasted to protect against heat, and can be quickly and easily removed in the event of an emergency, whether they’re fastened by velcro, studs, buttons, or are slip on. 

That doesn’t mean there’s a one size fits all when it comes to our chef uniform jackets. We have styles for men and women, short and long sleeved. And while all our garments are designed with comfort and durability in mind, our Coolmax t-shirt offers that little bit extra in making all that stirring, chopping and frying a breeze. 

You don’t need to go elsewhere for footwear either. We have shoes that will help your team stay on their toes for a long shift, with options without laces meaning less chances of tripping.

Classic or contemporary

Chef jackets are white for reasons relating to food hygiene standards, but as long as your kitchen is maintaining those standards, there’s no reason not to try other colours. 

The same goes for the classic chequered chef trousers. They’ll be no doubt as to who’s the chef, but maybe your team would feel happier in something plainer. Either way, our trouser options are roomy and made or sturdy material to offer good air flow and protect against scolding splashes. 

Adding an apron?

More chefs are now opting to wear aprons over the top of their jackets as an added layer of protection and to shield against spills and spatters. We have all shapes and sizes available, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for on our product page, just let us know and we can let you know of  all your options.

Tying it all together 

Put the finishing garnish to your chef uniform staples with some colour coordinating final touches. With elasticated skull caps and tie-back vandanas, your team can keep any flyaway hair out the way and look the part, especially when paired with a matching, none-crease chef scarf. 

Want to make a status statement? Traditionally, the taller the hat, the more senior the chef. Many restaurants have moved away from this visible hierarchy in the kitchen, but if you’d like to put a spotlight on your head-chef, we have the tall hats or toque blanche for them. 

Ready to order? 

We’re on standybye as soon as you are. We take the important elements of your chef uniform and add your personality to it, so your team can focus on representing your business in safety and comfort. 

If you’re looking for something off the menu, let us know, as we have a wide range of garments, all ready to receive the custom-embroidery treatment and the approval of your chefs.
