Frequently Asked Questions
A chef’s position in the kitchen, as well as where he works, determines the color of his trousers. Chefs that work in the United States often wear black and white checkered trousers.
On the other hand, chefs employed in Europe often wear blue and white checkered trousers, though the purpose is the same-to camouflage various spills and soiling substances.
Executive chefs, unlike working chefs, typically wear black trousers.
Chef pants are baggy to help keep chefs cool in the kitchen, which can be an extremely hot environment. As well, the loose pants give cooks room to move around with ease, bend over, etc.
Chef’s pants often have large pockets in them to accommodate kitchen tools or hand towels.
Chef trousers are typically made of cotton because cotton insulates the body against the intense heat of a stove and shields the lower half from the hot liquids that occasionally splatter while a chef works in the kitchen. Additionally, this fabric is breathable and keeps a chef cool while he maneuvers around a sweltering stove.
In design, chef pants are very similar to the scrubs worn by nurses and doctors working in hospitals.
Most designs call for the inclusion of two front pockets, with some manufacturers also including a single back pocket. It is not unusual for the pants design to include the use of an elastic waistline augmented with a drawstring, allowing the individual wearing the pants to adjust the fit.
While not designed for streetwear, chef pants are very comfortable.
This has led to some people purchasing the pants for wear around the home.
