In time I've worked for this company, they've changed the uniform an absolutely stupid number of times. And they're changing it yet again this summer! They just changed it last summer. I was hoping they'd revert to last year's uniform: blue jeans and the same black shirts we've worn for a couple of years.
Well, I got half of my wish. We are going back to jeans, which freaking thrills me! But of course they couldn't leave the shirts alone, so now I have to replace my stack of shirts. And naturally they're not going to provide said shirts, so it's going to cost me money to replace them.
And, naturally, they've chosen a shirt that's going to be a massive pain in the ass to find. You wouldn't think a black button-up shirt would be difficult, and maybe if you're a dude it's not. But if you're a woman with tits over a B cup, you're screwed--at least when they specify "fitted" shirts! I already know what's going to happen: any shirt I can find that's fitted enough to satisfy them is going to be so tight in the chest it's going to pop open and show my bra, and then I'll get in trouble for that! Fucking stupid is what it is.
They have loosened up on some things, which is great. For example, the new uniform code states that "one studded nose ring" is acceptable - it doesn't even say it has to be clear or flesh-tone. That will be a relief to half the staff. Also, visible tattoos are okay until they're "offensive". So at least I can strike "long enough sleeves not to show any hint of shoulder tattoo" off the list of characteristics for new shirts.
And then there's random stuff like hair must be a natural shade, and even if it is a natural color highlights have to be natural-looking. Earrings can't be bigger than a quarter -- but it doesn't say anything about length. One ring per hand, but no specification on bracelets or necklaces -- just not "inconsistent with the image we wish to portray". Oh, and no "excessive clips in hair." But my personal favorite is "socks may not show ankle skin". WTF? So holes in the nose and ink in the skin is okay, but ankle skin is illicit?
