New McDonald's Uniforms Channel a Dark, Dystopian Hunger Games-Like World

The outlet interviewed Waraire Boswell (of Ryan Gosling and Bruno Mars garb fame) about his WARAIRE design - which it turns out was inspired by his lingering embarrassment over a McDonald's uniform he had to wear in his youth. Do you love them, hate them, or don't really care what they wear as long as they get you your Big Mac in a timely manner?

Boswell told Refinery29 he looked at past uniforms from 1950, 1968 and 1974 for inspiration. "It is always essential that no matter who I am working with, I make sure they look and feel great".

From evil Star Wars employees, to characters out of the Hunger Games, the internet has been blasting the new monochrome uniforms as creepily dystopian.

Well, the employees like them, at least according to a McDonald's press release.

They look plucked from a galaxy far, far, away, but McDonald's new employee uniforms are real, from this galaxy, and have a lot of people talking.




McDonald's officials said the goal was comfort and contemporary professionalism, and more than 70 percent of restaurant employees surveyed like them. And it comes with a very Empire appropriate hat.

"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.

While Boswell has styled several A-list celebrities like LeBron James, Bruno Mars, Kobe Bryant, Tyson Chandler, and Ryan Gosling in the past, Rivas has created uniform collections for several major brands in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors, including the hugely successful McDonald's United Kingdom uniform line.

You can take a look at the uniforms here and decide for yourself. But the latest buzz about the fast food joint isn't about food at all. Or is this the gang responsible for flipping President Snow and Governor Tarkin's burgers?
