I am wondering where I might be able to buy Chef pants. I did visit Nikalous on Queen west and they have them there fore about $65. Is there a fair price? Is there somewhere else I should be looking? Thanks in advance!

    You can buy them at Nella on Queen East. I was just there on the weekend and my husband bought a chef's jacket for about $22. I don't remember what price the pants were but I definitely recall seeing them there.

      At George Brown they are $49. Yes, $49 for the ugliest, baggiest, most horrible elastic waist banded, mostly polyester pants you've ever owned.
      I hope you're of the male persuasion leslievillian and they will look marginally better on you.

      If you don't have to wear the traditional check the world is your oyster.
      For online Chef Revival is very good.

        I got mine at Nella on Queen East. I believe they were under $25 but it was about a year and a half ago so not sure if they are the same price. Plus, if you tell them you are going to George Brown chef classes, they will give you a 20% discount. Definitley cheaper there than at the GB bookstore.

          I bought mine at Dinetz on King Street, but it was a few years ago so I don't remember how much I paid. Definitely less than $65 though.

            Chefworks in Concord have them for $29.95 and up. They are very reasonable on coats, pants, hats, aprons, etc. They're at 150 Rivermede Road Unit 6

            Give 'em a call at (905) 761-7220 or check out their website at www.chefwork.ca

              expect to spend $20-30 for pantts at Nella & Dinetz. The drawstring ones are more expensive than non-drawstring. $65 is ridiculous, especially for something you're wearing to get stained.

              GB bookstore is overpriced too, avoid them.

                For the softest 100% cotton chef pants, check out www.chefwear.com.

                They are a bit more expensive, and they ding you for shipping so order plenty, but still worth the money. Trust me, I'm a chef, and after you've laudered them a few times they actually get even better!
