Chef Apparel—Putting it all together

With the increase in food channels, cooking shows, cooking competitions and online access to cooking demonstrations, more and more people are developing the courage to strive for cooking like a professional chef. Many also want to look like a professional chef. Whether you’re a professional chef, an amateur cook or just whipping up fine cuisine for a family gathering, appropriate chefwear is a must. Though you may not need every element of a proper chef uniform, selecting the right components can make your culinary experience more comfortable, more functional and more fun.

A complete chef wear uniform can consist of any combination of the following: a chef jacket, chef hat, chef pants, bandanna, neckerchief, scarf, bow tie, apron and comfortable slip resistant shoes. Of course, each chef has his or her own preference, but the concept behind a chef’s uniform is that it should aid the chef in preparing food comfortably and hygienically especially under busy and often hot kitchen environments. For chef’s that are exposed to their diners, chef wear should offer some element of style as well.

Every part of the chef uniform plays an important role. The chef hat, for example, holds hair in place for obvious reasons. It can be personalized with the chef’s name, even if the chef is dad, or a restaurant logo. Aprons aid chefs of all skill levels to keep clothes clean, for wiping hands and for keeping kitchen implements close at hand. Like the chef hat, aprons can be personalized with embroidery to add more professional touch. Chef jackets are available with short or long sleeves and in a variety of styles. They are generally made of soil resistant twill for easy washing. A pocket on the sleeve for a thermometer is a helpful feature as is a chest pocket and underarm vents. The jacket can be embroidered with the chef’s name or the restaurant logo as well. Chef pants are available in many styles from solids to chalkstripe to houndstooth to caliente! They are generally baggy and darker in color so that inevitable spills go unnoticed. In the darker colors, they contrast well against white chef jackets, providing a professional chef appearance.

Not every chef wears every piece of a chef uniform. Each restaurant or kitchen has its own dress code, but cleanliness, professionalism and presentation often lead the chef wear decisions. Though originally designed for function, chef wear components also make statement about style, especially because many restaurants expose the kitchen to diners. In many dining establishments, the chef is not hidden behind the swinging kitchen door. They often circulate through the restaurant checking in with diners or even prepare certain dishes at the table. In those instances, stylish, easy to clean and comfortable chef wear is critical.

Whether you are a member of the culinary profession, an accomplished caterer, a home chef or a beginner, chef wear can make a huge impact in your kitchen experience. It can change the entire look of your restaurant team or just make you feel like a kitchen professional in your own home.

The World of White Swan

White Swan originated in New York, in 1916, as a high-quality nursing uniform manufacturer. Later, the company merged with Meta, another well-known name in uniforms. In the 1990s, the companies became part of Dowling Textiles which made it possible to manufacture and expand their line of quality products at affordable prices. Today, White Swan is one of the best known brands for uniforms of all kinds including chef wear. They cater to both men and women, and their top priority is to provide comfortable and functional products at reasonable prices. They are the market leader in high-quality solids for hospitals, schools and clinics, as well as fashionable print scrubs,  Tru-Cord soft cotton corduroy scrubs, men’s and women’s lab coats and chef wear.    White Swan’s Fundamentals are 65/35 poplin with Soil Release.

Medical uniforms, scrubs and lab wear were originally designed for protecting the body during medical procedures.  Today, as nurses, hospitals and clinics try to establish their own unique identity, scrubs become a more important style statement. There are scrubs for pediatrics, veterinary and oncology departments.   “Uniform” no longer means starched, white and solemn.  Uniforms have become a reflection of one’s personality, an encouraging message to patients, a way to identify different departments within large medical facilities and, therefore, a more important matter of fashion and style.

White Swan offers lab coats in materials like Performance Poplin with Soil Release Finish, Cotton/Polyester Requisite with Soil Release Finish, Fine Line Twill with Soil Release Finish, Super Blend Twill with Soil Release Finish, and many others. Tops, pants and printed wear are also available in different fabric blends, shapes and sizes, including plus.

White Swan is always introducing more comfort and trendy designs for customers. They make constant effort to provide a larger variety without compromising the quality of their products. They blend their 100 years of experience as an industry manufacturing uniforms with the latest fabric, design and technology. More information about the company and its various products are available on the World Wide Web.
