Kitchen staff are often required to wear double-breasted chef jackets. These jackets give the distinctive look that diners associate with high-class restaurants and the double-breast style allows you to cover stains by simply switching the top and bottom layers.
But there are many stylish options. Double- or single-breasted jackets with either long or short sleeves are available in many different colours.
Usually made of heavy weight cotton, they are designed with safety in mind. They not only protect from burns and stains, but also keep you cool and comfortable. Working in a commercial kitchen with heavy tools and fast-moving hot surroundings it’s easy to bump into someone and have hot liquid splattered all over you.
