When you think of a chef jacket, what comes to mind is definitely not what the Freenote Cloth team has dreamt up. It has the skeleton of a chef jacket, sure. Double breasted front with that open throat sort of band collar. But, their Modern Chef Jacket is one that’s a five course meal where a traditional chef jacket is a sleeve of unsalted crackers.
Right out of the gate, it uses a double faced indigo quilted fabric. Fixed with custom burnt horn buttons, they’ve added two welt pockets which are accented with suede. And, though you might not use it back of house, the blanket stripe lining will keep you toasty when you’re strolling through Hell’s Kitchen mid-winter.
Available for $280 at Freenote Cloth.
