It’s all about pride. If you are proud of your profession, it will reflect in your choice of uniform, no matter what your walk of life. With the Chef’s uniform, there is more at stake than just keeping the uniform clean and white. A distinguished look helps generate a feeling of professionalism. When you don the toque, jacket, chef pants, necktie, and apron, you are continuing century’s old traditions.
When you walk into a kitchen with a bright, clean uniform at the beginning of a new shift, it is not only a measure of pride you have in your appearance, your skills and your profession. It is also a matter of health and cleanliness for your customers. You are demonstrating that you are a member of a brigade, and a practitioner of a noble and ancient craft.
