Before wearing, we recommend that you always wash the garment first at 30° C on the short programme with a small amount of detergent. This removes the finish from the garment and allows the fabric to breathe.

For all garments, the washing result is best if the laundry is washed according to the washing label and the washing machine is not overloaded. Place the clothes inside out in the washing machine. Blouses and shirts remain intact by using a laundry bag. If possible, it is a good idea to wash the garment immediately after wearing it - this way, stains do not have a chance to penetrate too deeply into the fabric. Choose a crease-resistant programme, do not use fabric softener and moderate the amount of detergent.

We would like to draw your attention to the washing instructions for Le Nouveau Chef garments. We recommend that you follow these instructions for optimum quality and guarantee. For more information Fabric and care

Orders are usually shipped with DHL or DPD. The delivery time within the EU is approx. 3-9 working days. We are not responsible for delays caused by DHL/DPD. Should delays by us arrive, you will usually be informed.

Orders should always be placed via the webshop, as with any other online retailer. Shipping is free for orders over €100 and the processing is faster.

A "purchase on account" is not possible - please select from the payment options provided.

Le Nouveau Chef is an online retailer that sells its items directly and has a network of resellers in a wide variety of countries around the world, not all of which, however, have a specialist bricks-and-mortar shop. We therefore recommend taking a look at our partners and contacting them directly if necessary: Authorized Dealers

Which country are you looking for? On the website, in the top right corner, there is an option to choose from a variety of options. If you are from the USA or Switzerland, visit for the USA: or for Switzerland:

The order of an item with name embroidery is always done directly in the webshop and is possible from 1 piece.

A logo embroidery is possible from 20 pieces and is processed by mail.

To inform you about the possibilities regarding the personalisation of the clothing, you will find a short instruction with further hints for the implementation HERE. We ask you to read this document carefully and think about your wishes regarding embroidery. When you provide us with the necessary information, make sure you send your logo in one of the following file formats: .eps, .ai, .jpeg.

After we have received your wishes and all other necessary information, we will create and send a digital sketch of the embroidery. This visualisation should give an impression of how the embroidered garment will look like. After receiving the drawing, you will have the opportunity to make adjustments. The fixed price of the embroidery includes one round of corrections. Additional adjustments at a later date may be charged.

For a first order, we always deliver under the payment condition prepayment. Shortly after receipt of payment, we will create a personalised embroidery card and you will receive a photo of the test embroidery by e-mail.

A personalised embroidery card*, includes

- a visualisation of the desired design, with a correction

- a photo of the embroidery on fabric

- the embroidery card can be used indefinitely at Le Nouveau Chef

*If you change the logo or the size of the logo, we will have to create and charge for a new embroidery card. The logos are charged according to the number of pieces

After your approval, the delivery time is 4-6 weeks (assuming that the chosen items are in stock).

It is not possible to return the chef jackets for embroidery. We recommend that you place a new order in the webshop. You can return the chef jacket that you have in your possession, provided the item meets the specifications (see Returns).

Delivery time for personalised items is 1 week for a name embroidery and 4-6 weeks for a logo embroidery (if in stock).

Please check that all the required details have been ticked. However, it may also be that the product is currently not available and therefore no embroidery can be added. We recommend that you try again at a later date and/or register for the mail informing you about availability (at the item itself).

In this case, the product has been reserved or added to the shopping cart by someone else at that moment. Please try again one day later. Maybe the other order was not triggered and the product is available again.

These "nodules" are so-called pilling, which is caused by friction and can occur from time to time with loosely spun yarns (e.g. functional underwear, similar to our chef's jackets). It is a mechanical effect that occurs when wearing (e.g. several shirts on top of each other) and occasionally in the washing machine. This is NOT a guarantee case or reason for complaint.

To prevent this effect, it is important to follow the washing instructions and wash the garment first at 30 degrees and then always inside out.

In general, we recommend that you follow the washing instructions to prevent damage and to maintain the guarantee.

We try to ship an order within 1-2 business days after you receive your confirmation (if in stock). When an order has been dispatched, you will receive an email with the track and trace number (make sure the email address is entered correctly and check the SPAM if necessary). Delivery time for personalised items is 2-3 weeks for a name embroidery and 4-6 weeks for a logo embroidery (if in stock).

DPD/DHL sends a track-and-trace link to the specified e-mail address one day before the shipment. This link gives you a quick insight into the status of the shipment. Therefore, check carefully whether the correct e-mail address is entered for an order.

Express shipping is unfortunately not possible.

In some cases, the parcel service provider (DHL/DPD) delivers the package, but the customer did not receive it. In order for us to best assist you in this case, we ask you to first check your tracking number to determine where the package possibly was dropped off. For example, has it been handed over to a neighbor or a service point?

If that fails, we ask you to contact us. Please have your customer and order number ready. We will then initiate a search via the carrier. This investigation may take a few days - for this we ask for your understanding.

As there is no uniform standard for dress sizes worldwide, it is important to use Le Nouveau Chef's size chart as our product sizes may vary. A size chart is available on almost every product page - you will find the sizes in UK/US, EU, General and in addition the corresponding recommendation from our side.

If you have any further questions, we will be happy to help you.

Samples can be ordered easily in the webshop. We recommend this especially in the context of a planned embroidery and if you are unsure about the definition of your size. A subsequent return is possible and free of charge for specific countries (NL, BE, DE, AT).

If neither of these apply, please send the discount code to and we will check it. It may be an old code that is not yet included in the new platform.

Once the order is completed and the payment was successful, a confirmation will be sent by email. Therefore, please check if all details, especially the mail address, are correct. If you have not received an email, please check the status of the payment and your SPAM folder - this may be the cause. If none of the above applies, please contact us.

This can be done by sending an email during office hours to or directly in the webshop via your customer account. Send us the full name, order number and reason for cancellation.
