This New Cooking Uniform is So Smart, I Might Abandon Aprons for Good
It's ten times more comfortable, too.
For many home cooks, the act of putting on an apron isn’t just about keeping your clothes clean. It symbolizes a pivotal shift in your day; the start of a new culinary exploit. Honestly, a good cooking uniform is really not that different from a superhero’s cape. Right? Right.
If you’re after something that will make you feel absolutely invincible in the kitchen, we’ve finally found it: the cooking jumpsuit.
Jumpsuits, rompers, overalls, and the like have been on the rise the last several years. They’re a one-stop shop, super cute and comfy, and let you wear pants without waistbands—obviously we’re all in. And thanks to their utilitarian nature, it makes sense that they’d end up in the kitchen. Professional chefs are on board: they know how crucial it is to feel comfortable when cooking better than anyone, plus they’re well aware of the importance of leg protection and sturdy material. The loose-fitting jumpsuit provides plenty of freedom to move about the kitchen as you cook and clean, and if you buy from a quality brand like Tilit, the durable twill will last for years.
Tilit’s jumpsuits are made in New York City from a stretchy cotton-poly blended material that will look cute in the kitchen or outside the house. It comes with short sleeves (so you won’t overheat as you cook) and a collar in both men’s and women’s sizes. The jumpsuit is stacked with functional details, like lots of pockets, underarm vents to keep you cool, reinforced knees, Sharpie slots, side tabs for extra adjustments, metal buttons, and even a tab on the back to tie an apron to (should you want to wear one on top). They’re available in navy, gray, black, pink, purple, blue, and off-white.
We’ll always love aprons, but we never loved having to fuss with that constricting ribbon around the waist—just saying. If you’re ready for a change, we promise this jumpsuit won’t disappoint.
