For those whose significant other wears a compulsory work uniform everyday. Do you (or they) get embarassed when they're wearing it/seen in public with it on?
I ask this because, I don't, I get a little proud when my DH wears his and on the odd occasion he has been wearing it with me in public, it doesn't embarass or worry me in the slightest. I know he gets a little embarassed and would rather not have all eyes on him, but all in all, it's not an issue.
However, today when I was dropping off my child to their first day of School, a few of the fathers were there in their respective uniforms (Defence and Police) and I overheard these women saying things along the lines of, 'oh my God, I would hate for my husband to rock up wearing his uniform, so embarassing' and comments along those lines.
I'll be honest, it took me aback a little, as I thought it was rather lovely to see so many Dads seeing their little ones off on their very first day of school.
So it has got me wondering, is it embarassing (in public) or is it something you're proud of and happy to be seen along side of?

I'd be proud, but he is not allowed to wear his uniform in public, and has to either dress at work, or cover his top with another for the travel to and from work.

He does, I don't care.
I can understand why he does though, it's not an ugly uniform but he hates where he works.
I don't really see what is embarassing about a Police or Defence uniform, maybe if his occupation was a male stripper or something?

No, its a light blue business shirt.
What annoys me is that it has his name plastered on it.

My husband only wears his work uniform at the minesite, it never comes home. But I think they are fine, I like seeing Dads in their work clothes bringing kids to school etc

I get embarrassed. But it's not a uniform, it's something he isn't meant to wear outside of work but he does sometimes to and from if he is exhausted and can't be bothered changing in or out of it.
I don't think it's bad that other fathers wear any sort of work uniform out though?? What strange comments to make. I would just think it's nice like you did OP.
