Chef pants to purchase in Ontario

Recommended Posts

Last entries on the subject of chef wear go back to the mid 2007s and so I thought I'd go after it again.

 

I own a pair of chile pepper chef pants by Chef Wear and want to buy new ones.   Mine are beyond repairing in the matching cloth...I've run out of parts I could cut out...and I am next buying black twill to repair them.  OTOH, I see that I can buy them on Amazon.ca but in the consumer comments I can see that the possibility of getting exactly what you order is a pig in a poke.  Sized incorrectly, cheaper material than advertised, and little possibility of returns and refunds.  Not to mention that what exactly constitutes a small or a medium? no details are mentioned.

Our local restaurant supplier store stocks only black and gangster stripe...that's Peterborough...and I want another pair of the chile pepper pants if I can get them.  Does anyone know of some city in Ontario...Toronto, maybe?...that stocks these pants?

CA Paradis in Ottawa sells chef's pants but I don't know if they have the kind you want.

chefwear  has been having sales lately; I get emails from them (far too frequently I think); I am sure they will be having more promotions this month.  Have you checked their website?  If they won't ship to you in Canada, I can send them to you if you want.

That's very kind of you to offer, JeanneCake, but if I do order some, I have friends in Delaware whom I can ask to send them.  I do appreciate your generous offer.

Thanks palo.  I do know about Amazon.ca and the pants I want are right there on the page...however if you read the reviews you will find that they are so varied and so negative that I cannot bring myself to order them:  wrong sizes, wrong materials, inability to return them....etc...etc.  Nope.  Not gonna happen.  I'll live without.

I just remembered that a chef I know wears all kinds of patterned pants including, if I remember correctly, chili peppers.  I have sent him a note, asking where he gets them.  If he answers, I'll let you know.

Have  you checked the bookstore at Fleming College? They used to sell all kinds of things related to their culinary course. I have definitely seen toques, aprons and jackets there. This was years ago but I think the course is still being taught so you might want to have a look.

Thanks NB.  Checked it out and they only have straight black and gangster pants available.  Before I started looking for the chile pants, I had no idea that anyone ever wore pants called 'gangster' pants.  Oh, I am getting very old...
