DRY-UP technology is a combination of three different materials.
1. A "smart" fiber that regulates body temperature by wicking sweat.
2. An open weave that optimizes airflow.
3. A high quality poly-cotton blend for structuring the garment.
Ideal if you work in a warm environment, are an active chef, or simply want to enjoy the comfort of a moisture wicking fabric! Inspired by athletes, Clement Design® created DRY-UP in 2004, the goal was to provide chefs as much comfort in the kitchen as athletes have on the field, no matter how extreme the environment.
The HYBRID wear concept brings together several high quality fabrics in one garment: a perfect blend of polyester and cotton warp and woof, which is combined with the highly technical comfort of mesh. The mesh used in the HYBRID wear concept has been specifically designed for professional kitchen use. Cotton is used for greater comfort with skin contact, polyester is used on the outside for greater durability of colors. The fabric is tightly woven for minimal distortion.
TSAR - BORN TO GRIP - Clement Design® Shoes
The SSR sole has now the highest grip coefficient ever obtained (0.69) according to tests performed by the CTC (centre technique du cuir: technical leather center). This means that these soles are capable of climbing a slide soaked in oil without slipping.
The TSAR line contains many shoes of different styles. Each style has been vigorously researched, tested, and approved for intensive kitchen use around the world.
Chefs are constantly on their feet. During the creation of the TSAR line, comfort was the primary goal. Thanks to innovative manufacturing, the weight of the sole has been reduced by 20% in order to increase comfort. Additional care was given to the creation of the shoe lining.
With comfort as the primary motivator, Clement Design® invented the I-BELT which is an elastic belt built into the pants. This belt allows for greater range of movement as well as quick size adjustments. The belt is made of reinforced elastic and is housed by a DRY-CLIM intelligent fiber looping system that regulates body temperature by wicking moisture.
The Titanball buttons are sewn by experts and can withstand a pull pressure of 110 lbs. The Titanball buttons contain a special seal or "shape memory" that allow the button to return to original shape after being run through ironing presses.
Several years ago, Clement Design® began studying ways to improve the lives of chefs and servers and invented what is currently known as the Speedbelt. This belt eliminates the traditional ties on apron and replaces them with a quick, and easy to use, velcro latch system.
