Why A White Coat?

Uncommon Threads 404 Unisex Newport Chef CoatBy Chefadoo’s Jen Hankin

Chefadoo has a great variety of everything you need to complete your chef uniform… from pants, coats, hats and more in a wide range of colors too! But nothing really “ices the cake” like a chef’s white jacket! It is one of the most recognizable pieces of clothing in the world.

The white jacket is one of the most common items of a chef’s uniform. It’s double breasted, perfect for reversing if the front gets stained or if the chef ventures out of the kitchen and enters the main dining room. Made almost always of cotton, the white jacket helps the chef’s body breathes and stay insulated from the heat!

White is the most reflective color, so a white jacket literally repels heat instead of absorbing it, keeping you that much cooler than if you were wearing a darker color — and in a hot kitchen every degree makes a difference.

Plus, when it’s laundry time, white cotton can be bleached, so no matter how badly stained a jacket gets, bright white is just a wash away.
