"Just wondering why they are so shiny right out of the package. Washed them before wearing and they still have a little shine to them. Also, they run a little long in the leg. Otherwise, happy. They are comfortable. Nice, deep pockets. Wish that the cell pocket on the side was on the right side though. Carrying keys and my cell phone on one side of my body makes that pants leg seem to sway a lot!!"

"On first look, they are well made, sturdy but light material that took first washing very well. came out wrinkle free. I wish they came in lengths as I had to have them shortened."

Possible Mishap?
Dec 05, 2017
"I have always ordered my pants and coats from Happy Chef and have always been happy with there products. This time when i got my pants everything seemed fine then I wore my pants several times and found that the waist banned is now coming unraveled. So not really sure if this was a fluke or something that just passed by. Hopefully this was just a mistake."

"Thanks to the prior reviews of other previous buyers I was able to purchase the correct size; the pants do run a size larger. I usually wear a size Large and due to the customer comments I ordered a medium which fit perfect! the only negative remarks I can make are the pant's leg does run slightly longer than I would prefer and the price of shipping.
But overall, great product! very comfortable and breathable fabric. great fit"

"Normally wear chefworks cargo pants, but for some reason they have moved on from making them. I bought 3 pairs of CookCool pants and other than the elastic waistline being very binding, they are great. Hopefully after a few washes, the waistband will relax a bit"

Love them
Oct 15, 2016
"The pants are great. They aren't like normal chef pants, very lightweight, breathable,and easy to clean. I am a chef at a pizzeria and I love the fact that I don't have to leave my phone in the office anymore. I can keep it in my cell pocket and when II pull it out to use it it's not covered in flour."
