A Chef Uniform as Individual as You Are
Chef Coat Fabrics
When customers ask us for our best chef coat, we make sure to explain that each chef has their own best chef coat. It depends on what you need, it depends on what you like. Here are descriptions of our fabrics, each with their own characteristics. If you'd like to get a swatch sent to you, or you have questions about what's right for you, just ask!
FABRIC OF THE WEEK
We have found a "stash" of fabrics that may have once been used on a coat, pants, or maybe a trading jacket in our manufacturing plant! These could be called a lot of things, we are going with FUN! After sorting through these we decided it was time to do... "Fabric of the Week" since we have no way of adding all of them to the website. Sign up for our Newsletter and get notified of the New Fabric of the Week when it's released for purchase.
These fabrics are available in small yardage and will only be available until they are ALL GONE! We will do our best to notify you when a fabric sells out, so it is first come, first served! Hurry, while supplies last! Retro and Out of Print! These fabrics are all 100% Cotton or Cotton Rayon Blends and are suitable for hats, bandannas, pants and collar or cuff conversions on your chef coat.... we could probably even swing a vest.
Since we are in Chicago, we honor Lollapalooza - Check out our Fabric of the Week (Added August 1, 2018):
I am calling this Guitar Hero! Available in Navy (3607), Red(3608), or Tan (3609) - - choose fabric of the week in the product's color selection and indicate your color choice in the order notes! Red is super limited (maybe 2 pairs of pants)! Order quickly.
Reminds me of my husband's zubaz in 1988!
