- 100% Cotton
Use of a higher cotton content, from premium cotton fabrics to cotton twills, makes our apparel the softest and most comfortable choice. Our Premier Jacket and Five-Star Jacket lines and the majority of our chef pants are made of 100% cotton. These choices give our garments a lighter feel a more breathable quality while allowing you to be more mobile.
- Cotton Blends
For a more durable blend but one that still possesses a soft, airy feel, we use a 60/40 cotton blend. The added polyester provides the garment with a little extra grit and after a few washes will be just as soft as our 100% cotton styles. Chefwear offers cotton blends on our Four-Star Jacket and Pant Lines.
- Poly Blends
Our most durable options are strong is polyester blends. The poly-rich fabric breaths exceptionally well and provides extra protection while working all day in the hot kitchen. Although a heavier fabric choice, the thickness of the fabric leaves the garment less susceptible to every day wear and tear. Poly blends are available in our Three-Star Jacket and Apron lines as well as our Athletic Pants, Yoga Fusion Pants and Athletic Jacket.
- 100% Polyester
Chefwear provides lightweight polyester options which give our customers a variety of choices that are breathable while also being durable. Strong polyester ripstop protects the garments from tearing, with a focus on stopping small tears from turning into big tears. For lightweight 100% polyester options try out Performance Pants or Ripstop Shirt which utilizes the ripstop fabric or the Performance Shirt.
The use of the waffle fabric, or often referred to as the honeycomb fabric, not only adds texture to the garment but makes the style extremely absorbent. Along with extra absorbency, the weave allows more air flow which in turn helps the fabric dry more quickly. The waffle texture is featured on our Premier Monarch Jacket.
- Bird’s Eye Pique
The use of the pique fabric provides the garment with a very high-end look and feel. The raised, distinct pattern is crafted in a tiny diamond shape and much like the waffle weave is extremely absorbent. Our Premier Ambassador Jacketshowcases the bird’s eye pique.
Seersucker is a common all-cotton fabric that is most popular during the spring and summer months. The weave provides this fabric with a natural wrinkled look which increases air circulation and makes it easy to care for.
