The chef coat is foundational to the overall chef uniform. And the chef uniform reinforces the style of the restaurant - formal, casual, playful, practical, regional, colorful, avant-garde, etc. When done properly, the result is a cohesive style throughout the restaurant that enhances the guest experience.
Contrast piping and contrast trim are occasional elements of a chef coat's style. Contrast piping is a thin line of contrast (different) color stitching that outlines an area of a chef coat - often along the edge of the collar, cuffs, pocket, and/or facing of the garment. Contrast trim is similar, but a little different. While contrast trim is also often found on the collar, cuffs, pocket, and/or facing of the garment, it's more prominent because unlike the thin outline of piping, trim is usually at least 1" wide.
Of course, chef coats are about much more than style. They're also highly functional clothing that helps the chef do great work in the kitchen while enhancing the professionalism and cohesiveness of the team. Long sleeves provide full length protection. Short sleeves help keep you cool. Mesh helps wick moisture away from the skin. Pockets help keep critical cooking tools close at hand. Certain chef coats even signal your role in the kitchen - from junior level to executive chef.
