Ellen's Pick — Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook, the owners and chefs behind Animal in Los Angeles, were some of the very first members of the Apron Squad. This apron named in their honor is made from Italian selvedge denim and is a favorite among chefs. The official hashtag? #SelvedgeTrimFTW. hedleyandbennett.com

Ellen's Pick — Can we say it? OK, we’ll say it. Mustard hues are in for good! This apron squad favorite is made with American canvas from one of the last mills left in the US. The canvas is sanded down to make the softest fabric ever. hedleyandbennett.com

Ellen's Pick — H&B sourced a beautifully deep burgundy chino twill that matches the depth and character of one of the best places on earth, Bordeaux. It’s not just for the sommelier. The white contrast piping makes the color pop for everyone. hedleyandbennett.com

Chambray Work Shirt

Ellen’s mission is to help chefs feel awesome by looking awesome and here’s a star from the lineup. This shirt looks awesome in and out of the kitchen, but the fabric was chosen for breathability and tricked out with a hidden pen pocket at a slant so pens won’t fall out. A dark interior color also conceals sweat, just in case. hedleyandbennett.com

The ultimate carrying case to withstand the hustle. Ellen’s chef collaborations helped her identify the problems kitchen rock stars run into when transporting their tools. Then she designed the most functional yet minimal design to answer those questions and then some. hedleyandbennett.com
