The best articles of clothing in our wardrobe are ones that combine style, comfort, and functionality. The modern medical professional needs to be able to transition easily from work to life, but it’s surprisingly difficult to find pieces that can be worn in multiple settings.
For example, my roommate, who is a Registered Nurse at LA Children’s Hospital, pretty much always needs to wear some sort of jacket over his scrubs to keep warm in the overly air conditioned hospital hallways. He had considered a white coat, but unfortunately at his hospital the only ones who wear lab coats are the physicians and doctors. And besides, he wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing a white coat outside of the hospital, meaning he would just need to carry another jacket around for when he goes to the gym or runs errands straight after work.
He usually wears an Underarmour jacket, which is great at providing that lightweight layer of warmth and transitioning from work to on-the-go. But this jacket is not made with medical providers in mind, so it also covers up his hospital ID badge and consistently gets in the way when he needs to reach into his scrub pockets for anything.
Fortunately for my roommate and male nurses around the country, Medelita just released their Ionic Men’s Scrub Jacket last month and it’s even better than we had expected (we’re talking 8 pockets on one jacket). Check it out below!
It comes in two colors: Black and Navy
It has pen pockets, sleeve pockets, and even a pocket to affix your ID badge on your shoulder!
There is even a media port for you to connect your smartphone
The silhouette of this jacket is very sporty and athletic
The scrub jacket fabric is comfortable and lightweight, but keeps you warm
Have you ever noticed how most scrubs available look like prison jumpsuits but in shades of blue instead of orange? It’s time to set aside your drab, unisex scrubs in favor of a uniform that actually fits you.
These modern fit scrubs for men are designed for men – more specifically, they are designed to fit like men’s clothing instead of cheap pajamas. The scrubs pants are fitted in a way that resembles a pair of chinos or khakis, and there is even a fly zipper in addition to the dual waistband-drawstring waist. In supremely soft fabric, these are the best scrubs available for men.
The modern fit mens scrub top is designed to fit like a nice men’s tee shirt. The v-neck is professional an modest, without showing off too much skin to be inappropriate.
The medical apparel market is brimming with cute scrubs options. Today medical professionals can choose from a wide variety of colors, styles, and even patterns – there literally is a scrub for everyone available.
But most of these trendy new scrubs styles are geared for women in medicine – female RNs, PAs, and physicians. The options for men’s scrubs are better than they were a decade ago, but it can still be a challenge as a male medical professional to find a nice set of medical scrubs that don’t resemble a prisoner’s uniform.
Many men will simply accept whatever is cheapest or whatever set of scrubs they are issued by their place of employment, but the fashion-forward male medical professional is willing to spend a little more on a high quality set of comfortable scrubs that actually fits like a pair of chinos or regular pants.
Medelita scrubs fit the bill exactly for professional men’s scrubs. Their designs aren’t overly flashy, but simple and ergonomically tailored for a full range of movement. They are also made with a special brushed cotton fabric that is supremely soft for maximum comfort all day, while wicking away any moisture, such as sweat.
What’s more is that Medelita’s men’s scrubs include a major design feature that all men will appreciate: a zippered fly.
Once upon a time, the only scrubs available (for men and women) were the drab unisex uniforms that looked more like pajamas. Scrubs pants in particular were shapeless and uncomfortable, with a cheap polyester drawstring that barely kept your pants from sliding down your hips.
Compare your scrub pants to your favorite pair of jeans. Your jeans have quality seams that won’t tear apart until after years of wear. They have belt loops, pockets, and most importantly – a fly zipper to make them as function as possible.
The options for scrubs have improved over the past years, and there are now plenty of options for mens scrubs pants that have zippered flys for ease of use for the wearer.
You need to look professional at work, and you need to feel comfortable during your long shifts. Choose scrubs that fit your needs, and that are more than glorified pajamas. These Modern Fit Scrubs by Medelita are made to fit exactly like your favorite pair of jeans or chinos, and feel even more comfortable – and the best part? They have a fly zipper so that you don’t need to fumble with a clumsy drawstring.
What is the difference between doctor scrubs and nursing scrubs ? One could say quality of the fabric or functionality, as doctors don’t usually need that many pockets and prefer classic, traditional style scrubs with solid colors vs bright funky patterns. There’s a company that specializes in designing scrubs for doctors, clinician scrubs and designer scrubs for medical professionals. It’s called Medelita (www.medelita.com). Leading manufacturer of the high quality medical clothing, doctor scrub top and scrub pants and custom tailored lab coats. Resembling a higher quality woven short-sleeve shirt rather than a regular scrub top – Medelita design allows for a confident and distinguished appearance amongst patients and colleagues.
Reviews of the Medelita Doctor Scrubs.
“What I truly love, are the real, honest to goodness scrub pant pockets. Finally I no longer need to juggle fifteen things in my hands. And although I probably have an average build for a man my age, I actually don’t look like a fire plug when wearing them.These are well worth the extra money compared to cheap, semi-disposable fabric scrubs sold by others” – Lawrence, MPA
“I dare you to find someone that doesn’t immediately fall in love with medelita products. I purchased a pair of scrubs for myself based on the soft feel and beautiful color. After wearing them – talk about so much more! I ordered my sister a pair of scrubs with embroidery for her graduation from medical school. It will be her first item with “Doctor” on it. I have no doubt she will be as proud to wear her fine scrubs as I have been. Cheers to a wonderful product from an exceptional company.” Beth, Physician.

“Expensive but worth it. They are very comfortable, no signs of wearing out after a year of use.” -doc, MD
“As an Emergency Medicine physician, I live in my scrubs. They are an essential part of my work day. For years, I have been looking for a great pair of scrubs that would fit well, wear well and be totally comfortable. At the ACEP convention in San Francisco 2011, I was introduced to Medelita company and the scrubs they were selling. After buying one pair to “try out” their scrubs and to see for myself their claims that their scrubs were a great fit and had “remarkably comfortable drirelease® with FreshGuard moisture wicking and bacteriostatic fabric to keep you dry”, I was truly convinced. The next day I bought 5 more pairs and enjoy working more comfortable with the Medelita scrubs. It truly is a great product.” – Mark, MD
“I am an emergency room physician and am in my scrubs over 12 hours each shift. These scrubs are very comfortable. I am never conscious of the fit of these scrubs throughout the day, which I guess, is a good thing. The pockets are great and the zip fly is nice. Would definitely recommend these scrubs.” – doc, MD
