Starbucks employees wear hats? I can't even picture what the hat would look like.


Not all do, but my city has a health code law that says we have to. It looks like this (minus his button):

Before I quit, my work uniform consisted of black pants, black shoes, a black apron and a black button down short sleeve. Gross.

I do at one of my jobs. It's a polo shirt/black pants combo. Oh, and I have to wear the stupid hat. It's just a baseball cap, but I hate having anything on my head. I also hate the hat hair I have to sport to my other job (in a professional setting) afterward because of it...

Otherwise, I love the uniform idea: no having to make apparel decisions. In fact, during the interview when they asked if I would mind wearing the uniform, I had to restrain myself from saying, "Woohoo! It's like being back in school! You just roll out of bed and throw it on!" out loud.

Nope. I work in a paint shop painting mostly theatre and opera sets, I wear jeans and usually a sweatshirt that are all covered in paint and joint compound.

My last job had a dress code but was still super casual, so usually I had jeans and a shirt, plus company hat and apron.

The closest I've come was in high school, I worked at the Renaissance festival as a musician, and I had to wear the same dress as the rest of my quartet.

The company I work for is in the business of adminsitrative services - we work in office and other than the people in the marketing office and our bosses, we don't see any client or non-employee. However on on Fridays - we are require to wear the company T-shirt (Wine Red Polo with Navy Collar, regular collar for guys and chinese collar for gals) and whatever bottom of our own choice...

Sort of. There's a really loose dress code and I have to wear an apron, but that's it. I like my apron because I constantly wipe my hands on it and it covers up the words on my shirts that I'm not allowed to have. I can't wear tank tops or super short skirts (I always wear pants anyway) and I have to wear safe shoes. That's about it.

I've worn black pants and staff Tshirt (video store), a chef's coat (cafe 1), any all-black ensemble (cafe 2) and now, any all-black ensemble again (Lush cosmetics). When I worked in a law firm I just had to look smart but I didn't have many clothes so I practically wore one shift dress as my uniform.

I can wear whatever I want now, but I miss lifeguarding, where my uniform was a royal blue swimsuit, royal blue cheerleading shorts, and a white t-shirt with a royal blue cross. I had seven of everything, and it was like wearing pajamas every day. I wish I still had my royal blue sweatshirt, it was the softest.

No, but I wear cardigans and skinny jeans almost every day so that may as well be my uniform. I work in an office and the attire is business casual, jeans ok.

It was both the most ridiculous outfit ever and also the best thing to waitress in because you could MOVE, baby! (pants totally get in the way).


Were you a waitress at a strip club?

Yeah I wanna know too! Come back and explain!
