The Suffolk Chef Jacket is one of our more distinctive styles thanks to its wrap collar which has a soft curve to its capped stud button fastening; all the other studs are concealed to create a sleek and modern chef jacket. We even include the addition of back darts which give the jacket additional modern lines and shaping, making this one of our most creative designs.
Like every other chef jacket we manufacture, the Suffolk starts of as a collection of fine ingredients, ready for tailoring into a fine garment fit for the most demanding of chefs. We take our bundles of fabric, boxes of buttons and plenty of cotton thread and spend nearly 2 hours crafting it all into a fine, premium chef jacket.
When it came to designing the Suffolk chef jacket, we wanted to take the simple, clean lines of the Cheshire and elevate the new jacket into something quite unique. To do this, we cut the jacket with a completely different neck shape, abandoning the more traditional mandarin collar for a wrap around one. Once we cut the new collar shape, we use a special process to push press studs through the fabric and conceal by stitching over with another layer. We keep one press stud revealed and cap it to create a subtle but modern style feature.
We keep the pen pocket with Oliver Harvey tab but also include extra features like back darts which give this jacket a stunning fit. It is almost finished now and must just go through a quality control check where we ensure that any thread is trimmed and the jacket is built to the correct sizing. All there is lift to do is attach our label and wrap in our branded tissue paper.

All in all a great piece of tailoring. Comfort and sizing is perfection and you couldn't really ask for a better fit.
The only downside is discolouration after you wear it the first 30 or so times. Obviously it comes with most chefs whites, definitely recommend washing these with a strong whitener even from day one to maintain its lustre !
Great whites and from a great British company
