    Chef Clothing

    Posted this somewhere else but what the hell, seems to be a lot of pro-types here.

    Looking at buying new clothes for work because mine have been washed so many times they are gray rather than white. Which brands do anyone recommend? I live in the UK so it might be a little different but I am curious. Does anyone prefer long sleeves over short? Does anyone wear the fancy cool panel shirts or just the plain ones? I wear Le Chef brand because I find they are very durable but most of my co-workers wear cheaper no-brand ones. I find it quite funny that despite being 6'2 and 185lbs my clothes are all small size

    Definitely staycool if you are in UK. Denny's are producing fenomenal chefs whites.
    And what a trousers! I wash mine every week and still have them since 2007, theres no wear at them at all.
    Have a couple of staycools and they are very very very good quality, none of mines changed colour and its very easy to get them cleaned.

    For me short sleeve, 56 otherwise shoulders doesnt fit, but 56 for dennys is still Medium
    When at four seasons they had old jackets with rubber buttons and long sleeve but then i just rolled them behind elbow, like most of others did.

    Damn, looks like jiujitsugi
    I wonder if you could apply cross-collar choking to some stupid commis, if he required it??
    Other than that, seems strong and pretty comfortable

    Wow, that is some fancypants stuff. Probably totally worth it though, you're in it every day.

    My job requires we use their crap supplier. I hate the way they fit.

    Ordered a rather expensive jacket that is apparently tailored to a degree and is fitted by suit sizes so it will be interesting to see what it looks like, never bought one before. All the jackets I wear are small even though I am by no means a small person but I like them to fit quite well and I think if they fit well it keeps you cooler when it's warm

    I also agree the jackets Colin linked to look awesome. And they do look a lot like Gi material. Do they do long sleeves versions? Perhaps Ezekial choke unwelcome customers? Get a co-worker to buy one and do some rolling when its quiet

    They are made out of seersucker:
    Seersucker is a thin, all-cotton fabric, commonly striped or checkered, used to make clothing for spring and summer wear. The word came into English from Hindustani (Urdu and Hindi), which originates from the Persian words "shir o shekar", meaning "milk and sugar", probably from the resemblance of its smooth and rough stripes to the smooth texture of milk and the bumpy texture of sugar.Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a wrinkled appearance in places. This feature causes the fabric to be mostly held away from the skin when worn, facilitating heat dissipation and air circulation. It also means that pressing is not necessary.
    Light, stay cool, no pressing or ironing needed and still look stylish.
