Every chef needs certain attire to wear in the kitchen – whether it’s on the home front or in
a professional restaurant. It’s sometimes enough to get a cute apron for them to wear, but some bakers prefer a more

with a comfortable pair of shoes – something that won’t allow them to slip if there’s a spilled item
on the floor of the kitchen. Pair that with socks that wick sweat away from the foot. Because a chef is on their feet
for long periods of time, comfort is of utmost importance.
Many chefs like to have durable pants that won’t stain whenever food is spilled or sloshed (or even
wiped) directly onto them. It’s important that they’re comfortable, too. Many chefs opt for some form of natural
fitting cargo pants or executive chef pants that are baggy in nature.
A chef’s coat can be formal – made of a thick material, complete with long sleeves
– or, it can be comfort-based and short sleeved, yet still professional in appearance. Some chefs won’t don a
coat at all, opting instead of a utility cook shirt that allows for more breathing room.
The aprons they have now come in a wide range of styles and functionality. There
are long aprons for chefs with pockets, and short aprons from the waist down that help prevent simple splashes onto clothing.
As for chef hats, there is also a variety to choose from. You

Chef attire generally comes in black and white, but form time to time
you can find styles in a rainbow of colors – from vibrant red to chocolate brown.
For home chefs, you can invest in kitchen attire they’ll appreciate. Aprons
can be chosen to depict a certain style of the gift recipient. You can also invest in oven mitts and gloves that prevent
cutting mishaps, like Kevlar knit gloves.
