It looks like the uniform from a sitcom parodying a no-frills airline!

As a premium service I'd have thought that HEx would want to go for a classy look, and other than (possibly) a chavesque tracksuit I can't think of anything less classy that this (and I'm a complete slob, so I know all about unflattering).
The great coats aren't too bad (relatively speaking, if you squint) but the rest of them look like they've been run over by a line painting lorry.

I like the fact that the new internal of the trains is based on purple.....

I guess nobody told the designers that on the railway Hi-Viz clothing is supposed to be orange not yellow... :D

I think that's the first uniform I've seen yet that is actually as bad as the Connex 'circus ringleader' efforts of years ago.

It looks like the stable wall where someone's been on an acid trip! Who the hell thought yellow was a good idea?

Thats what I thought. But you read the story and it turns out its meant to be green???

The guy in the middle that seems to have escaped with something classy- is he a driver or management?

Are they going to be sent into mines to check for toxic gases? Or has Delia taken over?

Oh my gawd!!

I do hope my firm doesn't get any funny ideas!

I've always enjoyed the fact that I have to wear a uniform. There are so many benefits. For a start I haven't got to worry about what I'm going to wear every day.:lol:

But THAT!! Sorry, it's vile.

That has got to be the worst uniform I have ever seen. What was wrong with the old one, it was very sexy on the ladies!

I hope Bittern or blackettstreet don't see this! :roll:

why? just stating a preference. Even if their Wives/Girlfreinds etc worked on GatEx I wouldnt have thought any offence would be taken, maybe they would even agree ;)

Yes, it was a little sexist but, just a bit of lighthearted humour. It certainly wouldnt bother me if somebody stated my TOC's uniform looked sexy on staff, I would just think they were a bit odd...
