Tailored pants that fit like a glove. On your legs.

Goldilocks was a thief and a vagrant, but she had a good point. We like things just right, like our food or our bed, and definitely our clothes. It’s why we designed the Modern Fit pants to feel great, combining light material with a superb fit.

Performance Microfiber Waistband with Drawstring

Keep your waist dry and your pants fitting the way you like. The moisture-wicking microfiber means that even as you run around to cook your best meals, your body doesn’t feel the heat.

Two Side Pockets, Two Back Pockets, One Water-Resistant Loop and Velcro Thigh Pocket

When you need your tools to be by your side or secured, you get #SMART. We’ve crafted these pockets to give you plenty of storage options and make cooking easier.

Slimmer Fit Leg

Contoured pant legs provide comfort perfect for the back of the house and style that’s perfect for the front.

Cotton/Lycra Stretch Fabric

No great chef ever stood still; you’re always on the move, reaching or tossing or shuffling. The cotton/lycra material moves with you and provides support.

Wrinkle & Soil Resistant

These pants hold their form even as you reach for pans, bend for pots and plate your dish. And if you spill sauce or oil on you (which obviously never happens), the stain is easier to remove.

"I like these pants. They are comfortable and cool. My only complaint is that the material is not very strong. I wore holes in them in less than a year."

Good quality but a bit pricey
Mar 20, 2018
"They are a great pair of pants. They actually have an attached belt and like the only pair of non baggy chef pants. They are a bit expensive compared to other pairs of pants though. If you haven’t tried the cooling pants then you should because your legs will thank you. It really does make a difference, at least on a hot line. You won’t want to use non cooling pants again."
Jamon, verified buyer
Falling apart
Dec 03, 2017
"I've had these pants for almost a month now and they're completely falling apart. First the loop for the side pocket fell off, then the belt started to fray (I don't wash the belt when I wash the pants) and now just recently the zipper fell off completely. I do like the pants a lot the design and fabric is fantastic I think I just got a defective pair of pants "
Arturo , verified buyer
Great price..not so great quality
Aug 29, 2017
"I bought 5 of these. They held up well initially. Then after the second wash..one pair the zipper came apart. After a 4th wash..the seams came undone on the back pocket of 2 pairs of pants. They fit great..but wish the would hold up better.."
Decent, has potential, could be better, the high belt line is a major flaw.
Aug 20, 2017
"These pants fit fairly well, however the belt line was too high, needs to be more of a low-rise, the included belt is a nice touch, but not a an of velcro on the cellphone pocket, since velcro wears out fast, a sturdy snap would have been better.
Fix these issues and you could have a 4 or 5 star product, also, come out with traditional black w white stripes, and other patterns, once you have perfected the design. "
Waltbae, verified buyer
nice pants
Apr 12, 2017
"I like these pants as they are cool and comfortable, the only complaint I have is they shrink after several washes. The length was right when I got them but after washing them they are now up above my ankles and look like flood pants."
Jwizardtree, verified buyer
Best purchase this year!

decent pants, decent value
Apr 20, 2018
"These pants are one of only 2 styles I've found that come close to fitting me. I'm 5'3 105lbs. The material seems to be decent and it's more breathable than some others. The fit is less baggy than most, so I don't feel like a clown. The waist sits right at the navel, about an inch higher than I prefer. Also, they shrink a lot, like maybe 3 inches. After about 10-15 washes, I was able to get rid of the belt on the first pair I got, they shrank so much, which is ok because they were so big (I got the small). They're still not tight, just comfy now. I wash them on cold and dry on low, fyi. Pockets are plenty roomy, although I don't use them for much. This is my 2nd purchase."

"These were the best that I found. Most chef pants are too baggy. He likes the fit, the pockets, and the design. It may sound gross but he wore them 4 days in a row! I have to get him more! "

"Only thing I'd change would be the buttons. The big plastic ones it comes with are not my favorites. I'd prefer knots or Studs "

Colour Faded Quickly
Jan 07, 2018
"The Pants were brought in August and started wearing on October 13, 2017. The colour has faded. Love the style and fit. What must be done in order to preserve the colour?"
Lucier j, verified buyer
Very nice pants
Nov 29, 2017
"I work in a deli, mainly cleaning at the end of the night so there is a lot of water and oil. These pants are not baggy and fit well, but they still allowed plenty of movement for the bending and reaching I needed to do. They also wash like a breeze. I get both dirty and grimy water and oil on them every night and they have no stains. I love the velcro pocket and wish there was a second velcro pocket on the other side, but the main pockets are very deep and I have not lost anything from them yet. "

I am thoroughly dissapointed
Nov 15, 2017
"The belts supplied with these pants are totally worthless. The do not stay tight or grab at all. I had to purchase a black belt to wear with these pants.

I have had them less thatn a month. I discovered a hole next to the pocket on one pair, and I have not ever worn/washed them 10 times yet.

I would like to be contacted to reslove this matter. I went with your company even though it's pricyt b/c I thought it would equate to quality.

It didn't. "
Clark, verified buyer
Good pants for everyday use
Nov 09, 2017
"So far, these pants have been great. Comfortable, they don’t ride up or sag. The belt is a great addition—makes the pants worth the extra few dollars. They do have a low rise in the waist; that might be something to put in the item description. But for me that’s perfect! I’ve been waiting for a pair of pants to fit ME, not fit like generic sweatpants. These fit the bill."

They're so comfy
Sep 25, 2017
"These pants are comfortable and I like that I can move around without feeling tight or my clothes fallin off off me. I am loving that it has its own belt, so I don't have to search for a belt or switch belt to each pants.

Smart Purchase
Sep 10, 2017
"Great pants, like how they don't get dirty easily. Just wanted to point out the fact that as a cook you crouch, squat alot... So if you don't ask for the right measurements you'll end up ripping them. But it's nice and the water resistence of it is just awesome. Would recommend them! "

Great fit
May 29, 2018
"I think the price point and value of the Chef Pants are good. I like the quality BUT the one thing that bothers me is they wrinkle easily and they attract lint. It's difficult to keep them lint free. I wash them but do not put them into the dryer. I did that once and they shrank quite a bit which was fine for the one time because they fit perfect now."
Joe eats world, verified buyer
Comfortable, without the Bagginess
Mar 25, 2018
"Great Chef's Pants! Comfortable and not Baggy. They have plenty of give as you're moving around the kitchen.
Unless you are very tall, be prepared to hem them up though.
I'm 5'10 and I had to hem them up about 4 inches, but no regrets at all on buying these. I will be ordering another pair and hoping they might add some other colors or prints like traditional hounds tooth, etc. "
