    Hi i have figured out this past few weeks at work that i am allergic to poly material  polyester 

    i remember when i first put on the  Cotton/Poly blended Coat in school i started itching but not very bad 

    now at work out coats are 100% poly and i itch all the time 

    this is why i feel i am allergic 

    so i am looking to find a white chef coat 100% cotton 

    i have looked on Chefwork's and i see the ones that say 100%  DON'T HAVE mY size next to them like 5x is what i would need 

    they go more as in numbers 

    the largest i see is a 60 

    can someone please help me out to understand what size a 60 would be 

    is a 60 going to be to small for me if i weaer a 5x  ?

    i did do some google searching on them 

    i know for work i need to have the cloth knotted buttons so that i can always take the buttons of of my current work cots to replace with other buttons that come on the new ones 

    but yeah it has to be white not black 

    i just wish i cuould find out how to tell what size the 60 would fit that chefworks 

    im going to call them tomorrow and see if the 60 is equivlent to a 4 or 5 x

    I have met a few F&B people over the years (mostly women) that have them custom made.

    Craigs List would be a good place to start a seamstress search after that maybe hobby/craft stores that teach quilting (you need to hire the teacher or a very experienced student ;-) or other places that teach (needlework) or sell sewing supplies.

    HTH.
