    I wear a compulsory uniform as I'm a preschool teacher. I always wear it everywhere if I'm going somewhere before or after work, shopping, doctors visits, dinner (depends on the restaurant) and on dd's first day of kindy there will be a possibility I'll be in my uniform if I'm working that day.
    I look at my uniform as free advertisement though especially as I'm mostly around the local area after work

    Oh I wish we had name tags! Our jumpers all have stitched named on the front so we don't mix them up when we take them off. We all want them on our shirts except one who unpicked her name from the jumper so she could shop after work lol

    Mine's a fluro oompah loompah too, doesn't faze me that he wears his uniform places. I don't see what's to get embarrassed about?

    DP is a boilermaker so his uniform is dark blue work pants and (normally) a reflective long sleeved work shirt. Lately he has been wearing an all blue one..so all navy blue...and grubby...covered in work dirt...I love it. Sexy sexy! I am not embarrassed one bit when he is in his work clothes.

    I myself just wish i actually had a job. Uniform or not.

    I agree I've always been of the school of thought that a man in uniform is seeexy! Think...Richard Gere in 'An Officer and a Gentleman'...
    So was extremely surprised at what I overheard today.

    Mine is a boiler maker and when he worked on the tools he used to wear fluro yellow shirt and blue pants. I was never embarrassed if he wore it after work. He now manages a workshop and wears a polo and jeans and still not embarrassed

    My DF is also a boilermaker I don't mind his uniform but it gets so dirty and holy that I can never keep them clean so we have to buy him a new set every couple of weeks..

    If he wore his really old ones out I might he looks a bit homeless all holy and dirty but i wouldn't think it's a big deal...

    On a side note he hates me calling it his uniform but I duno what else to call it haha
