Oliver Harvey was born out of the realisation of a distinct shortage of Tailored Chefs Clothing that is designed and manufactured in Great Britain and a desire to replicate the standards of the top level chefs wear brands worn by Michelin star chefs, and a belief that this could be done for a price that makes this kind of product more accessible. Modelling itself as a "˜quintessentially British' brand, Oliver Harvey aims to offer discerning chefs high quality garments that are 100 percent made in the UK for a price point that reflects the standard of manufacture and yet is still affordable. The range has been designed based on classic styles with an inspired twist to bring to market a range that is ultimately the best in class. This is after scouring the four corners of the world to find a selection of fabrics that not only look and feel great, but also conform to the exacting standards of any domestic and commercial wash process. We've spent years in design to bring together a truly exceptional range of chefs wear that will not only perform under the most extreme conditions but will also look stylish at just the right price. Oliver Harvey offers a limited range of products consisting of jackets, trousers, aprons and shoes. Each item offered has been meticulously designed by our in-house team after speaking with key industry chefs. From their feedback and 18 months of trails, we now have a product range embracing the "˜features and touches' that is unique to Oliver Harvey. These include a variety of fabrics such as Egyptian Cotton, Cotton/Polyester blends all featuring "˜Coolmax' breathable elements to Rip-stop fabric as seen in our aprons and trousers. Whether you are looking for one or one hundred pieces, we have the ability to supply. As production is based in the UK our lead times and ability to react to your needs is unsurpassable. We also have in-house embroidery so we can adorn your jacket or apron with your name or company logo. For any enquiries, please contact the numbers below. You can view our complete range on-line at www.oliverharvey.co.uk
