You could be wearing scrubs for 10 or more hours a day, so you want to make sure that they fit correctly and will last for a long time.  To help you choose the best medical scrubs for men we have outlined the essential steps to finding the perfect set.


Take Your Measurements 


The first step to choosing medical scrubs is to take your measurements. Men should measure their chest at the widest part, their natural waistline, their hips at the widest part (while standing with feet together) and their inseam (Measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg opening (an inch below the ankle). Mark down your measurements so you have them on hand for easy reference.


Choose Your Size


Zzuri Scrubs offer Regular, Short and Tall sizes to ensure you can find the perfect fit no matter what. Here’s the difference between these three options:


-Short length: for heights up to 5’7”


-Regular length: for heights 5’8” - 6’1”


-Tall length: for heights 6’2” and above


Choose your true size if you prefer your scrub pants to be more fitted or size up for a relaxed fit.


Investigate The Fabric Blend Of  The Medical Scrubs


Not all Zzuri scrub pants fabrics are created equal. Most women’s uniform pants are made from various blends of popular fibres, such as cotton, polyester, rayon, and spandex.  The fabrics have different properties depending on the percentage of each fibre, as well as the weave and finish. Zzuri uses fabric made from a blend of polyester and elastane.  Spandex is woven into polyester to add elasticity and stretchiness to the fabric.  In addition, Zzuri fabric is integrated with Silver Ions antimicrobial technology, which provides odour protection, inhibits the growth of bacteria, yeast, algae, and other microorganisms that cause odour and fabric damage, and increases the lifespan and durability of the product.


Examine Fabric Finishes and Treatments


After it’s woven, the medical scrubs fabric may be treated with additional coatings or processes to add different qualities to the materials. Moisture-wicking finishes are applied on Zzuri Scrubs fabric. Zzuri scrubs fabric are also treated with some type of coating to help reduce the transmission of bacteria and other germs. Finishes and treatments can affect the feel of the fabric, so read the fine print to see what alterations have been made to the fabric.


Decide What Features You Need 


Not all medical uniforms are created equal. While scrubs for men may follow the same basic design, each style will have a slightly different set of features. A single chest pocket is standard on a scrub top. Some men scrub tops come with three front pockets and some with hip pockets. Some scrub tops come with side slits for ease of movement, while others do not. Scrubs pants may offer a drawstring or elastic waist and any combination of pockets. Think about the features you most need in your medical scrubs and use that to narrow down your search.


Select A  Colour


There are a variety of colours of medical scrubs for every skin tone and colour.  Currently we stock black and navy colours for men, but we will be introducing other colours such as khaki, Ceil Blue, Graphite, Royal Blue, Burgundy, etc. Choose scrubs tops and bottoms of the same colour for a monochrome look.  Make sure both pieces are in the same collection to ensure an exact colour match.
