I, Alex McCrery (Chef turned designer) and Jenny Goodman (FOH turned COO) founded Tilit with two chef aprons designs, one pair of pants and a chef-shirt. The line started small, but the plans were big, the reception strong and the users at the foreground of every decision we made.
USA MADE. We started the line with the idea that each garment would be made in the center of NYC's garment district by talented people that produced amazing work, not just mass market uniforms. We still make over 90% of our garments including our chef aprons in the same shop, with the same attention to detail.
AUTHENTIC. Tilit's operating team has collectively logged 800,000 hours in kitchens. We are cooks, we are servers, we are true industry people that design and await each new product release as intently (if not more so!) than our amazing customers. NO bullshit. We are authentic.
HOTELS, RESTAURANTS & MORE. Tilit NYC has grown from catering to only chefs, to now offering custom looks for hotel uniforms including Spa, Pool, Maintenance, Managerial and more, plus restaurant uniforms in both BOH and FOH.
