Our Mission

Utility Chic Story

Shannon's chef jackets and uniforms are made using multi-functional, high technology fabrics from Japan, Italy, and Switzerland - embedded with advanced finishes for durability, stain resistance, and wicking.

High performance stretch fabrics repel moisture and dirt on the outside, while transporting moisture away from the body on the inside.

In addition, industrial snaps, zippers and grommets provide a fresh and unique finish to her modern silhouettes and unique designs.

 

 

To maintain the highest quality standards, the Shannon Reed collection is manufactured in small factories in the United States.

Every detail of the product is carefully considered, from the selection of fabrics, to the exactness of the stitching, to the placement of the label. The wearer will instantly recognize the meticulous care and attention given to the creation of each garment.

 

What Chefs Are Saying About Us

 

Barbara Lynch, designer shannon reed, chef jacket  "Shannon produces chic, utilitarian and  comfortable chef coats for women! I have spent 25 years in the kitchen wearing ill-fitting men's coats until Shannon came along. She focuses on your individual size, shape, and stretch needs. She's meticulous with her fabrics and her designs are perfectly stylish. Just like my restaurants in Boston, she's an addition to anyone's vision when it involves both simplicity and elegance."  - Barbara Lynch of Barbara Lynch Gruppo | 2014 James Beard Foundation's Outstanding Restaurateur
Chef Jonathan Waxman, hedy goldsmith, designer shannon reed, chefs wearing shannon reed "Thank you for your attention to the smallest details. I love the grey stitching in key places. The grommets are on steroids. For real!!"             - Hedy Goldsmith

"Shannon's jackets are durable, easy to clean but most of all feel great. The snap buttons make it easy to get on and off quickly. Her designs are thoughtful, clever & unique. I usually order a few at a time because I can't bear being without one on a day-to-day basis." 

- Ana Sortun of Oleana

What Others Are Saying 

 

"Great design, comfortable in the kitchen- very easy. People always ask-who made it?"Susur Lee

 

"The jackets are Awesome !! Absolutely the best jackets I have had made or bought worth every penny! Thank you" Joey Maggiore

 

"Let's start off with this... I love your designs, but more importantly I love the fact that a designer finally realized there are chefs that give a shit. Sorry if that was to much. So anyways I have a magazine shoot coming up and am looking for something cool. Obviously I love your aprons, but I need a new chef coat and as I do enjoy crooked brooks seersucker I am looking for something a little more fall, and a little more inventive. I do care about my attire and love what you are doing. I obviously will give you full credit but let's talk and come up with an idea. Thanks." Justin Antiorio

 

"I was drawn to your coats/aprons because of the big rivets, but I have to say that my favorite details these days is the tiny contrast stitching in the corner of the arm pocket, the apron pocket, the seam at the bottom of the apron... Every single morning when I tie on my apron, I feel pure joy that at least I can look good while I work." - Karen Collins | Babycakes and Confections

 

"I love your jackets– it's so nice to find a women designing some chic chefs' jackets! I am a private chef and need a nice jacket or two. Congrats." - Karina

 

"My partner Joe and I have been a fan of your line for a few years—we are happy to see you are back in business. I have been searching for what feels like years and the only jackets that I have ever found I really liked are yours." - Dawn Thomas, Co-founder of Rouxbe

 

"Wow! These are incredible! Never knew that chef jackets could be so fashionable! I'd be too scared to get these dirty!" - Marielle
