Scrub fashion tends to focus mostly on women’s scrubs, but that doesn’t mean leaving our men out. You may think scrubs for men are only traditional unisex scrub sets, lacking fit or style. But there is just as much creativity and detail put into quality men’s scrubs.
Whether you’ve been on the hunt for medical scrubs for a while and have no clue where to start, this guide will cover what to look for when choosing your scrub set. Focusing on materials, color, and style will set you up with a pair of men’s scrubs that will last shift after shift.
Things to Consider When Picking Out Scrubs for Men
Rather than typical pants with a zip fly and belt, many scrub pants rely on a casual waist. (Although there are exceptions, like Carhartt’s ripstop cargo pants that come with belt loops.) In general, you’ll probably want a drawstring and/or elasticized waistband for greater flexibility and adjustability — a must when you’re constantly on the move.
Most scrub tops have short sleeves, and long sleeve underscrub layers are also popular. Layering in general is a nice option for those moments when the AC is working overtime like everyone else is in the hospital. Lab coats and zip front jackets like this Dickies jacket or short-sleeved Cherokee Workwear jacket can also add comfort and a personal touch to your work uniform.
Pockets and storage are essential when it comes to medical uniforms. You need to decide if you’re happy with a single pocket top or if you’re more of a multi-pocket scrub top kinda guy. Same goes for scrub pants: Can you get through your day with two side pockets, or do you prefer multiple cargo pockets?
Finding your style in regards to color and pattern is something else to consider when picking out your scrub set. Solid tops are a no-brainer and fit most dress codes, but prints can be fun to wear every now and then.
Great Scrubs Start With High-Quality Materials
High-quality materials can make the difference between a work uniform that makes you look and feel good and one you just wear because it’s regulation. Quality scrubs are made of fabrics that flex with you and allow breathing room where you need it most.
Keswi scrubs are made of a special polyester, rayon, and spandex blend. Polyester is durable and wrinkle resistant, which means you can throw them in the washer and dryer day after day without wasting time on ironing.
Rayon gives your scrubs the athletic breathability that helps you keep your cool — literally. Thanks to its moisture-wicking capabilities, rayon is the perfect material to ensure you and your scrubs stay dry during your busiest rounds. Meanwhile, spandex adds extra “give” to your scrubs so they’re never constricting during tough medical procedures (or when you’ve gone a little overboard during those unit potlucks).
The four-way spandex stretch, micro-peached finish, and durability of Keswi scrubs make them the most comfortable and lasting men’s scrubs around. They’re the perfect weight to prevent snagging on sharp edges but won’t make you overheat under your scrub jacket.
Have Fun Selecting Your Colors
The task of choosing scrub colors is often done for you by your unit regulations, but sometimes you have the freedom to pick your own. If you prefer darker, neutral hues, you can’t go wrong with Keswi’s classic black, pewter, and navy blue tones. If you prefer a bolder palette, try royal blue and wine to broaden your scrub collection.
Keswi scrub colors are great to mix and match with other colors as well. When you’re in the mood for a print scrub top, try pairing it with a solid Keswi pant to anchor your look or vice versa.
Pay Attention to Scrub Sizing
Finding the right size means your scrubs will look professional without hindering your work duties. There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re going to split your scrub top leaning across the hospital bed to mute an IV alarm or tripping over pant legs that are too long. Keswi scrubs for men come in a wide range of sizes, S-3X, so you can always find your perfect fit.
