Restaurant uniforms have to perform a dual duty, on one hand they are the garments that you are required to wear for your work and on the other hand each part of your ensemble plays a vital role in protecting you from everyday kitchen dangers. The chef uniform consists of a chef's jacket, chef pants, a hat, a neckerchief, an apron, chef coats and sometimes a hand towel.
Chef Jackets are one of the most important parts of the Chef Uniform. The chef jacket is traditionally double breasted and helps to protect against hot spills, splatters, burns and other kitchen mishaps. The sleeves of the chef uniform are long, in order to protect your arms from burns, splatters and scalding steam.
The chef hat is the most recognizable part of your chef uniform. The classic French cooking hat or "toque Blanche" is literally translated as "white hat". They come in a variety of shapes and sizes but most are tall and pleated. Their main function is to keep hair out of your food and sweat off your face.

The Chef Pants are usually baggy, are fitted with elastic waistbands and play a vital role in protecting chefs. The baggy shape of chef pants helps to keep hot foods and liquids from making contact with your skin. The golden rule is never to cuff the bottom of your pants as cuffs trap scalding foods and liquids.
