Skip to comments.Project McDonald's: Designer 'De-Americanizes' Fast Food Uniform
Posted on 06/26/2012 10:32:16 AM PDT by Truth29
The new look still takes its cue from the kitchen: pickle green and mustard yellow polo shirts at the counter. Mustard-colored skinny ties and belts for managers. Lettuce green pants for customer service assistants. But the condiments cues are the only reminder of the old get-ups.
We've taken some of the Americanism out of the uniforms," the British-born Hemingway told Yahoo! Shine in an interview Monday, just a few weeks before the uniforms are rolled out at four Olympic park restaurants in London.

I find that I can’t eat McDonalds, regardless of the colours of the uniform.
I still don’t mind Burger King or Wendy’s.
But I think Harvey’s has the best burgers. I think they put cocaine in their burgers, they are so addictive.
Wow those are horrible, but McDonald’s uniforms have always been horrible.. I still remember the polyester striped white and red shirt, with black pants and fake tie I had to wear.. and the joy I had burning it the day I finally quit.
They “Obamasized” the cloths. What a joke.
Sure, why not. Our own government is de-Americanizing America.
BTW, uuuuugly new “designer” uniforms. I thought we were in an economic crisis and paychecks weren’t going as far these days but nooooo let’s pay for some pansy fashionista to give us what we don’t need or want and raise the price of uniforms and food. Yo, Ronald, if you really want to make some changes, how about better food? Your customers don’t give a rats behind about new uniforms.
Mustard yellow-brown is my absolute least favorite color. Ever since this one puppy pooped in my lap in kindergarten.....
So sorry that “sophisticated” designers keep using it. Yuck.
So they are all going to dress like scientist and engineers now?
McDonald’s TV spots are creepy. What’s up with that little bearded man?
The wording is really unnecessary (’De-Americanizes’?), but honestly, they actually look really nice considering it’s a McDonalds uniform. Without even reading where they spoke of it in the article, I totally got the Mad Men vibe as well.
Compare it to the dumpy clothes they make them wear today, this actually makes them look really professional and dignified.
Meh. It’s not gonna help with anything important, like making the food taste better, so it’s dumb.
Sounds more like they took heterosexuality out of the design.
How about re-fooding your crap products?
They look fine but I am sorry for all the men who have to wear a tie.
I don’t think you should have to wear a tie when working fast food. There have to be some perks to the job.
“Mustard yellow-brown is my absolute least favorite color. Ever since this one puppy pooped in my lap in kindergarten.....”
I guess it’s so they can sell more “euroweenies”.
He used his cattle prod and pointed at a bunch of cows. "See those?" he asked. "Those are going to McDonalds."
Mangiest, sickliest most gawd awful looking bunch of cattle you ever even imagined could possibly exist. Couple of them had different eye color in each eye, scrawny.
I'll never eat McDonalds unless I'm half a step out of the grave from starvation, then I'll think twice about it. Especially when I opened my burger one day and the lettuce looked like someone had scooped it up off the floor.
They seem to think that when we go out, we want to eat the cheapest that they can possibly manufacture instead of food of the same quality we make at home.
I bet Nancy Wilson of Heart would dig a single, successful guy in such a uniform.
Grab a handful of clothes at the local Goodwill store and you have their “designer fashions” duplicated.
Agree, and this from the article:
"Baseball caps are a big thing with fast food," he says, "but they're far too casual for restaurant service."
Is McDonalds considered fine cuisine in Britain? Well, knowing British food, maybe it is.
