McDonald's new uniforms: inspired by Star Wars or '50 Shades of Gray'?

McDonald's new dark grey uniforms prompt sci-fi comparisons

While you might not be able to lock down a good job with the Imperial Senate, you can start working for McDonald's, where your uniform will make you feel like part of the Empire's massive fleet.

Like most things, the uniforms will grow on customers but for now it's amusing to see all the jokes flying around at McDonalds' expense.

In an internal survey done by McDonald's, they said more than 70 percent of workers were liking the uniforms.

Designer Boswell, who worked in a California McDonald's before he became a designer to stars such as Ellen Degeneres and Kobe Bryant, said he wanted to give employees "a greater level of confidence" with the uniform redesign, Fortune reported. The new look will be worn by almost 850,000 employees, however a United Kingdom spokesman for the burger chain said there are no plans to bring the uniform to the UK. One person said the uniforms have "McDeathstar Vibes".

To be fair, the uniforms look much less dystopian without the "convertible denim aprons" now infamous on Twitter.

Social media had a field day when the fast-food chain tweeted about the new uniforms on Thursday.

"I$3 t's another step in the company's continuous effort to raise the bar by investing in people and improving the restaurant experience with a focus on hospitality", Langhorn wrote.

McDonald's says the new uniform collections were developed based on feedback from restaurant employees and customers, and may be worn by approximately 850,000 restaurant employees.

A second uniform collection, called "Timeless Elements", was designed by British designer Bindu Rivas, known for uniforms she's created for British banks, airlines and U.K. McDonald's locations.

A few of them have even noted that when it comes to the fast-food industry, style is extremely relative.
