The contemporary chef's uniform draws from a long history of tradition. It is standard for executive chefs to wear black chef pants, and the traditional color for pants for all chefs is houndstooth, known for hiding stains. For those chefs who want to shake off tradition, however, there are pants available in various colors and designs. They may have a button fly or elastic waist bands. Several pockets make the pants convenient, and they're available in full cut and slim fit.
