Black chef’s jackets—long-sleeved, short-sleeved, premium fabric & more

Not all chef’s jackets need to be white! Read on to discover more about:

  • what features to look for when buying a chef’s jacket
  • our range of long-sleeved and short-sleeved black chef’s jackets
  • our best-selling black jackets
  • why Le Chef is one of our favourite brands

Chef’s jackets—what to look for

  • High collars—shield you from hot splatters up to the neck
  • Long sleeves—protect your arms from getting scalded or burned when reaching across stove burners or into ovens
  • Short sleeves—keep your uniform well out of the way of cooking containers and flames, while helping to cool you down
  • Double-breasted design—the two layers of thick fabric guard against scalds and burns, while double rows of buttons let you reverse the jacket to conceal stains
  • Material—usually a lightweight cotton or cotton/polyester blend that both breathes and absorbs liquids
  • Fastenings—knotted buttons and press studs allow you to quickly remove the jacket if hot oil is spilled, and are less likely to break off into food
  • Loose fitting—your body shouldn’t feel restricted
