McDonald's looks to 'Mad Men' for inspiration on new uniforms

mcdonalds-uniforms-mad-men-1.jpgHow about a side of style with that Big Mac? That's what McDonald's U.K. patrons will be getting as the fast food retailer rolls out new uniforms inspired -- at least in part -- by "Mad Men" and the mod '60s aesthetic.

The uniforms were rolled out in the U.K. ahead of July's Summer Olympics Games, reports the Telegraph. McDonald's got a little help from Red or Dead fashion designer Wayne Hemingway who said the uniforms "hark back to a day of really classy air travel."

There's just a little bit of 'Mad Men,'" adds Hemingway.

The food prep crew will wear burger-inspired uniforms: Mustard yellow polo shirts for men and "gherkin green" for women. Customer care assistants (aka cashiers) will wear checked shirts with dark green pants or skirts. Managers will be a little more formal with black skinny ties for men and scarves and pencil skirts for women.

What do you think of McDonald's new U.K. uniforms? Should the company roll them out worldwide?
