www.ArwayForYou.com is who my students use - very easy to deal with and very inexpensive
Also, if you have cash floating around and don't know how to spend it, you could drop some bucks with www.ChefWear.com - good stuff, mostly, but on the epensive side.
chef whitesThe best way to get chef coats is to work in a restaurant and take your whites home everynight to "wash" them. LOL
The best way I've found to get out the wrinkles is to hang my coat in the Combi-oven for a few minutes with steam, works like a charm.
here's some really nice colors
I like the ice
there's the ladies pants page.
Sideline -- what are the most comfortable clogs you've worn? I had some from Germany, they were awesome! Lost them in the move....
One of the most romantic things my husband ever did: I'm working, he's at home and not out to sea. I call him in a panic because I'm in sweats in the kitchen and we have to do a gig last minute -- he hi-tails it to the restaurant supply store and buys me the "peppers" chefwear pants, fights seattle traffic, pulls up to the kitchen's back door, opens it in a dramatic fashion, and states "I've got your back honey!!!!"
i love your question, as it reminds me back into a young career some 30 years back, when i bought a chefs jacket more expensive in Europe, than i do today in Asia today. there are many creative designers in the world, just ensure it is not made of polyester as that would hurt your skin once your uniform catches fire for what ever reason. contact me, there are some fun uniform designers out here, who have styl and still humble prices.

Chef's coats were designed for men. I would not look good in a Hooter's Girls Orange short shorts either and we won't even talk about the top. They do make a pink chef''s coat, I saw one on Blythe Beck on Bravo's "The Naughty Kitchen" I didn't see much of it, I was in a big hurry to change the channel. I get cataloges all the time with them in all colors like lime green, mauve, violet and even denim etc. Personally I've worn Chefwear for years

Go to your local UniformsUSA. They have these great jackets with mesh, and really breathable material that won't stain, and they're in black.
You'll have to order them, but they're perfect for the summer time/hot kitchens.
