Best chef Coat available

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Aloha everyone,

 

I am a laundry manager and am looking to get the best chef coat available for our retiring executive chef. Being that I am not a culinary individual, I just buy the clothing I am reaching out to anyone that can assist me with this task.

 

This jacket will be embroidered and framed.....Please help

I don't know that there is a "best", especially when it is going to be framed and not worn.

 

I like Egyptian cotton, underarm vents and piping so I like this one..

I'm thinking, that for what you are doing, a retirement gift and all, that you could just go to any company's site and look at they're top executive coats, and pick out the one you like best.  You're giving the gift, so which one do you like.  I'm kinda thinking that for this purpose, the quality of coat will be minimal difference; they all will be high quality.  It's sorta like picking out the trim on a Bently.

thank you Ice, I wasnt too sure which jacket was the top quality as there are so much choices. I was stuck between premium and executive jackets.

OK.   A gift is a gift.  The important part is from your heart ... not your pocket.  For me at work I want solid color heavy-duty cotton w/ buttons that ainte popping off easy.  For TV I'd wear something with different colored cuffs and trim, with the cool fabric/wood buttons, that cost north of $100.  LOL silly me.  I'd probably look like a NASCAR driver chef loaded up with decals and sponsors.  When you check suppliers look for words like "executive", "premier" and "5-star" type tags.  That'll probably get you into the classier options. 

 

 

LOL ... duh ... I guess you just said something like that.
