Do You Like McDonald’s New "Mad Men"-Inspired Uniforms?

By Kim Anne Jun 27, 2012 6:19PM

We’re not the only ones obsessed with the life (and the wardrobe) of Don Draper and the rest of the Mad Men crew. McDonald’s is hopping on the 60’s fashion trend with their Mad Men-inspired uniforms.


The fast food restaurant chain hired designer Wayne Hemingway to help update the uniforms of United Kingdom McDonalds employees.


“There’s just a little bit of Mad Men,” Hemingway told the Telegraph, “harking back to a day of really classy air travel.”


The new duds include pencil skirts and piped button downs with Peter Pan collars for women, and skinny ties for men, all fashioned in mustard, gherkin green and light plaid. “We wanted classic design. A narrow tie will always be fashionable,” Hemingway said. “There is a very subtle hint to the mod look, which has never gone out of fashion.”


Now, if only we could get Jon Hamm to serve us our fries.


Tell us: Do you like the new uniforms?

Eugh, I am not wearing that. Yes, I work for McDonald's and I'd just like to start by saying that the colour scheme is hideous. I mean, have you even thought about the practicality of that? I believe we will be wearing our hats and hair nets, as stated by our food and hygiene practice. The ties, well managers already wear ties. I believe they tuck them into their shirt. I refuse to wear a skirt, I don't care if I'm a customer care assistant, I'm not wearing it. The shirt looks uncomfortable, the skirt even more so but the trouser option looks way too manly. So we can't win here? Guess I'll be leaving pretty damn soon. I am just hoping to high heavens that this abomination doesn't come to our school. Look, the trousers and black polo shirt do me fine. Rant over.

Where are the hats? I don't like or want hair in my food thanks. Also , ties? Where's your health and safety savvy? Fried tie will be on the menu soon then will it? 99p special I hope? And you're really going to subject your female staff to sexual abuse by drunken louts when they are clearing the dining area by having them wear skirts? Glad I don't work for McDonalds.

maybe you should learn to spell properly before you talk about mcdonalds employees keith scott, people who work there would rather work for a living than sit on benefits or post ridiculous and offensive comments on a blog post, also if you dont like the food, maybe you should go to burger king or kfc, you sound like an ad campaign for a lesser known brand

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
