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.

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 "

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. "

"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."
Matede, verified buyer
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."

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."

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."

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."

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! "
