Unisex scrubs have been around since the birth of the scrubs. They are the perfect choice for hospitals that are purchasing medical scrubs for all their employees; employees who are both men and women. Quickly, scrubs have morphed to come in a variety of styles that are targeted at just men or just women. However, unisex scrubs are still the most popular scrubs. Here are the Pros and cons to unisex scrubs:
Here is a men's scrub set that is practical and durable. The Landau V-neck top in Caribbean blue and the Landau Reversible Drawstring Pants in Caribbean blue as well. Having one color sets keep you looking put together, sleek and with the right color, can even help make you look taller. Not to mention having the same color for the top and bottom makes getting dressed in the morning that much easier.
This outfit has our on-the-run nurses in mind. Most of your day is running from one area to another. You need scrubs that aren’t only comfortable and durable, you need scrubs that will help you out. PerforMAX scrubs will do just that! They are made the same way athletic clothes are made to help keep moisture away from your body keeping you cool and help sweat not become a problem. The top has long sleeve insets that fit snug to your arms. This has been approved to be used on nurses who aren’t scrubbing in for a surgery. They are also great for nurses who maybe get a little chilled throughout the day.
To match the top, we suggest the PerforMAX drawstring scrub pants. These traditional design pants are made of the same moisture-wicking fabric to keep you dry and cool.
Soil release finishes can be found on many industrial or service garments. A soil release finish can help prevent different liquids and powders from soaking into the fabric. This makes cleaning the garment a lot easier if the stain stays on top of the garment. It does this by increasing the tension of the surface of the garment. This causes the liquid/powder that falls on the garment to to bead up and reduce the speed to which the garment absorbs the stain.
This is a fantastic technology for scrubs. If you are in a field of health care where stains are a every day occurrence, having soil release finishes can help you save more scrubs because you are able to fully remove a stain. Scrubs 123 offers a variety of Medline scrubs that come with a soil release finish. A popular scrub set would be our AngelStat Reversible V-neck top paired with our AngelStat Cargo Pants with Drawstring waist. Both are these have a soil release finish to help prevent stains. Not only are they functional, but both fit comfortably and come in a variety of colors!
With scrubs you can have as many or as few pockets as you can dream of. The standards are usually 1-4 pockets on a scrub top. For pants, it can go up to 7 pockets! How do you know which garment to pick? Some nursing professions need all the different pockets while others have hardly anything they need to carry on them at all times.
If you are dentist or dental hygienist chest pockets on your tops are not necessary. Since there is so much bending required, it would be almost dangerous to carry many things because something could fall onto the patient. A great option for tops would be the 8800 series. It has many different print designs as well as solid colors. It has two pockets near the waist to hold something temporarily like tissues or a cell phone.
For a nurse working with children, you may need some more pockets to hold all your equipment. Something like the 4256s V-neck would be ideal to keep the pens, cell phone, lollipops & medical equipment organized and easily accessible.
Prefer to have your pockets on your pants? There are plenty of places to have those as well! Again, each profession will require a different placement. You can get pants on the back, the sides and the front of the scrubs.

One of our favorite scrub pants would have to be the ComfortEase Unisex Cargo Pants with Drawstring. These pants have three pockets to carry all the daily items a nurse might have. Two of the pockets are on the sides of the scrub pants which allow for easy access, and are deep so they can carry the bulky items such as highlighters/ sharpies or treats for your well behaved patients (perfect for nurses who work in pediatrics!)
Not only do these pants have lots of space to store things, they feature a four panel construction for added durability. These scrub pants are also comprised of 65% polyester and 35% cotton to give you a comfortable pant that has minimal shrinking and the color won’t fade. These scrub pants are available in regular length and tall length (35” inseam). This pant can be paired with the 910 reversible top or the ComfortEase Women’s Tunic top (8851).
A nurse does more than what any patient realizes. Nurses are the medical provider, the support system, the stern mother, the maid, and so much more. To do all these rolls nurses must be equipped. Here is our Nurses’ Gear Guide-
1.) Pens. A staple of the nurses’ arsenal. You never know when you will need a pen, and it would be very smart to always keep a back up because somehow pens have a knack for running away when you need them the most. If you don’t want the pen staying loose in your pocket, take advantage of the scissor pocket. Clip the pen onto the scissor pocket and the pen will stay in one place so you can find it when you need it. Use a scrub top like the AngelStat™ V-neck w/ two pockets which has the additional scissor pocket within the front pocket.
2.) Scrubs with pockets. Lots of them! With all the different items nurses need to carry around from patient to patient, pockets are a must have for scrubs! For maximum number of pockets, match the PerforMax™ 839 scrub top with two large pockets with the PerforMax™ Cargo scrub pants which has four pockets (2 front and 2 side pockets).
3.) Peppermint oil or other scented oil- for the patients that don’t smell like flowers or candy. Sometimes it’s just nature that a few patients will not smell good. But as a nurse, we must go in and stay professional and friendly. So, a little secret is to put some peppermint below the nose so you can smell something nice and remain composed and prevent the patient from feeling conscious about their body odor.
4.) Bag of tricks. Aka the tote bag that holds all the items a nurse needs throughout his/her shift. With all the items that are needed for the job on a daily basis, plus the personal items such as lunch, a wallet, phone, extra scrubs, change of clothes, etc. a nurse needs a bag that is able to hold it all and still look cute & trendy. Check out Medline’s trendy totes made of 50% recycled products and prices start at just $6.18!
5.) Stethoscope. Many nurses are responsible for having their own stethoscopes while on their shift. It is important to get a high quality stethoscope. We think it’s also important to have a back up stethoscope, because when working in the medical profession, we know surprises are the norm and a back up stethoscope should be in the nurse’s arsenal
6.) Scissors: You never know when you or a fellow nurse/ doctor will need some scissors. They can be for serious issues like cutting patients out of their clothes in the ER, or opening a package of fruit snacks for a patient who is too weak to open it themselves.
7.) Music: When you are on break, you need to escape the drama & stress the job brings. Go somewhere quiet and listen to your favorite music. Music is known to help relieve stress and it will certainly break up the day being able to listen to some music half way through the shift!

Let’s be honest. We men don’t really care to wear floral and shamrock print scrubs on Saint Paddy’s day. Nor are we planning to dig up some checkered daisy scrubs for the spring. We might (key word being “might”) wear blue or red sometime during the 4th of July week. But that’s only if our red or blue scrubs are clean and they happen to be at the top of the laundry pile. So if you’re tired of weeding through seasonal prints and paisley swirls then look no further. We’ve sifted through the best scrubs and gathered some of the top designs for men (all completely swirls and floral-free)..
Its zip front, lapel collar, and streamlined cut give it a professional look and comfortable fit. Two patch pockets and a chest pocket hold all your essentials. Choose from a variety of colors, including black, blue, grey, green, and khaki.
A total of 8 pockets, zipper fly, and belt loops give these cargo pants a distinctly masculine feel. Plus they’re made from a breathable polyester and cotton mix for supreme durability.
Raglan cut sleeves, layered chest pockets, and side slits give these scrub tops an extra comfortable fit. Choose black, navy, or royal blue. Head to Scrubs123.com for Scrub Uniforms, Medical Scrubs, & Nursing Scrubs. We’ve got a wide array men’s Hospital Scrubs - Scrub Tops & Scrub Bottoms to choose from - all comfortably cut to suit your style.
Whether you’re new to the scrub-wearing game or a veteran at donning the duds, at some point you’ll face that harrowing question - “How many scrubs does a person really need?” 2? 5? 25?
The answer is: it depends. So before you throw out your 30 year collection of scrubs (or run to the nearest store and buy 12 more pairs), check out these tips and tricks for determining just how many scrubs you really need:
First, make sure you know your employer’s policies on scrub cuts, colors, and patterns. Does your employer use color coding to distinguish between departments? Are patterned scrubs allowed? You don’t want to run out and buy your favorite Mickey Mouse scrubs and then find out your employer only allows solid colors. Check the rule book before updating your wardrobe.
Compare your laundry schedule and work schedule. It’s true, some of us only do laundry every other week. Others like to throw in a load every other night. Think realistically about how often you do laundry and whether or not you care about having freshly washed scrubs every single time you work. (Tip: if you regularly pick up extra shifts you should keep an extra pair of scrubs on hand so that you’re not scrambling to find a clean pair at the last minute.)
Look for wear and tear. How tough are you on your scrubs? Just because you think you have enough scrubs doesn’t mean it’s not time to retire some of the old ones. Do at least an annual check on your scrubs to determine which ones to keep and which ones to toss.
Check the weather. Do you live in a cold climate state? You may want to invest in some long-sleeved scrub jackets (such as Landau Scrub Jackets Crew Neck Warm-up Jacket) for the winter months. This means you’ll need both short-sleeved and long-sleeved scrubs. If you live in a warm-weather state you are more likely to get through the winter with the same short-sleeved scrubs that you wear in the summer (though you may want to layer a tank or long-sleeved t-shirt if it gets a little cool).
Consider your own personal tastes. If your employer allows you to choose the cut and colors of your scrubs then you have the freedom to express yourself through your work attire. What’s your style? Do you want some with patterns (check out these patterned Scrub Tops, Scrub Bottoms & Scrub Jackets) and some that are solid? Do you want special holiday scrubs? Think about what colors and patterns will most make you feel comfortable and cheerful at work.
So, bottom line - think carefully about your unique needs and tastes before buying (or throwing out) all your scrubs. When it’s time to get some new work apparel Scrubs123 will meet your needs!
