Instagram sensation @the.king.of.mortadella is undoubtedly the most dressed-up (and cherubic) fan of the large cured pork sausage. But you can show your love for the Italian cold meat without donning a pink polka-dot chef’s apron; Aussie workwear and uniform label Worktones has the next best thing.
Last year it released a line of baseball caps that simply say “mortadella”, and the stylish headgear is now back in stock.
The olive green caps are 100 per cent cotton with stitched air holes and an adjustable back slider – great for a day out in the sun, running errands, chilling with friends or planning your next antipasto platter (actual mortadella not included).
Worktones also has caps that spell out “Allora!”, as well as some dedicated to sanga specialists Lox in a Box (Sydney) and Hector’s Deli (Melbourne). There are also jackets, tote bags and hoodies, plus a whole range of aprons. Just before Christmas it launched a couple for kids, including these adorable ones featuring illustrations of top Aussie dishes by Good Food Crap Drawings.
The brand specialises in uniforms for hospitality, but also has its own range of retail workwear that’s functional and classic.
