"Our clothes are too much a part of us for most of us ever to be entirely indifferent to their condition: it is as though the fabric were indeed a natural extension of the body, or even of the soul," once stated the author, artist, critic, and biographer (and nephew of Virginia Woolf), Quentin Bell. We couldn't agree more, and that's part of why we're so meticulous about the quality, fabric, and function of our lab coats and scrubs. After months of thoughtful design and development, we're proud to present our newest lab coat designed for female clinicians - the Emma W. lab coat. Here are the top 5 features of the Emma W. lab coat for women: 1. An Exceptional New Collar Design Whether you call it a tuxedo collar or a shawl collar, this striking design truly sets the Emma W. lab coat apart. This modern collar is often seen on new, high-end women’s blazers, and translates very well to a white lab coat. Feedback to date is that it has both a formal look and an everyday, professional look – and thus is ideal for everyday wear in clinical practice. The slimmer collar design also prevents embroidery coverage, which is often the case on our smaller sized lab coats with larger lapels. 2. The Best of the Estie Two features on the Estie lab coat are sincerely loved by our customers/colleagues. The blazer style slit chest pocket (also fully functional) is great because it doesn’t draw attention to one side of your chest, and is the perfect frame for name & title embroidery. And the flat belt that wraps around the front, originally on the Estie, and placed at the true waist for the most flattering definition. Both features have been adopted for the new Emma W. lab coat. 3. The Best of the Callia The Emma W. has a loose back waist belt with buttons, quite similar to the original Callia lab coat. And the Emma also has traditional side vents, like the Callia – a welcomed, very traditional feature of a longer white lab coat. 4. Slimming Features The Emma W. complements all figures, but slimming vertical princess seams (both front and back) and pleating below the bust make this coat especially flattering for women of all sizes. 5. Comfortable and Functional Fabric Now in the most ideal weight lab coat fabric to date, our lightweight 100% pre-shrunk cotton fabric resists wrinkling and is distinctly more breathable than polyester-blend fabrics. Certified performance fabric by DuPont repels fluid, soil and stains - including blood - for over 50 washings, allowing a bright white finish that signifies professionalism and prestige.
