The Cheshire Chef Jacket is a premium jacket with coolmax side panels. The addition of the breathable coolmax sports fabric ensures that you keep cool and comfortable while working. To further aid cooling and comfort, we use a specialist premium cooltex poly cotton fabric which is far more breathable than cheaper fabrics.
We designed the Cheshire chef jacket to have a bold styling, modern lines and a closely tailored fit. To make the jacket, we first start by cutting the rough shape with our advanced fabric laser cutter. When we have the front and back panels that make up the jackets, along with both long and short cut sleeves, we stitch them together. We use a quality cotton thread and double stitch seams to increase the strength and durability of our jackets.
When the basic shape of the chef jacket we then cut the opening, add the sleeves and make a space for the premium coolmax fabric panels. These panels run from the arm seam all the way to the bottom hem. On one of the hems, we have a fabric arrow detail with a subtle Oliver Harvey embroidered in ivory cotton.
The final touches to be made to the jacket are the sewing of the pen pocket on to the left arm along with the addition of our signature red tax tab. Once the final threads have been trimmed in our finishing department and the chef jacket has been checked for quality, it is wrapped in tissue awaiting a new owner.
I’ve worked in good kitchens for around 22 years. Recently bought a couple of these Cheshire Jackets and I’m very impressed! Of course we’d all love an Egyptian Cotten Jacket but for an everyday Jacket these are perfect. I actually prefer this design over the Oxford. The studs are solid and convenient. I can’t give feedback of how they will be a year from now but so far so great. I’m normally a size S (36-38) in other company’s tops and they are normally still a tad baggy after some good wear. I decided to order the 38” not sure if it would be too big; it is the perfect size, feels tailored and a great feel and manoeuvrability. If you want a solid Jacket that looks and feel good even for presenting yourself front of house, for the price these are amazing.

Brilliant comfortable basic jacket, really lightweight and the coolmax panels are a god send during busy services. I did find it a little shorter in the body than what I'm used to but was still comfortable.
Definitely need to get a couple more, or try the Oxford too.
Amazing jackets, will be gradually replacing the jackets work provide me with these

This jacket looks great especially if you take care of it, I have a lot of respect for my jackets and this one especially because it is one I wear on a daily basis for busy services. I keep it washed it whitener and iron it every time before I wear it. The coolmax side panels are a massive bonus, before I found Oliver Harvey I was wearing the £8 jackets which were heavy and got very hot in service. This jacket and all of the Oliver Harvey jackets I have are very lightweight and they keep you cool in service which of course enhances your overall performance.
