I am trying to find a mint green chef's coat. I can find neon green and hunter green but haven't had much luck finding mint green. Do any of you guys know of a company that specializes in odd colored chef coats?

This company does them but they are pretty pricey.

Yep, just a bit out of my price range, Thanks for the info though!

Could you buy a white one and then dye it? I know I've used the RIT dyes in the past to change the color of something. (It's a bit of a pain, though, so maybe you wouldn't want to try it.)

Don't have time to deal with that, and I am not sure they make a mint green either

I was unwilling to spend a lot for a chef's coat so I bought an inexpensive white one and dyed it purple. I used Rit. I came out better than I thought it would and didn't take long at all. The only thing that bugged me was that I had nothing else (at the time) to dye and a lot of it went to waste.

You can control the colors a bit by how long you soak the item/garment and they have a nice assortment of colors. I purchased mine (the dye) at Michael's. Check; they might have the shade you're looking for.

This one has Hunter green (scroll down the page) for $50 bucks:

Do you know a seamstress who could sew you one? Good luck. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the help, Snarkybaker, but that isn't mint green it is a teal color icon_sad.gif Even the expensive link doesn't actually have mint green anymore. So will probably have to settle for white coat with mint green embroidery. Darn.

Sorry CakesDivine... I was going to suggest the same as snarkybaker did. I have that teal colored coat, but it is def not mint green. Wish I could help!

My coats are made by Crooked Brook, and they will send you out swatches of all of the colors they have that are close to what you want ( some aren't shown on the website) I get the others for my assistants and they are nice quality especially for $20.
