Uniform

A uniform is a type of clothing worn by members of an organization while participating in that organization's activity. Modern uniforms are most worn by armed forces and paramilitary organizations such as police, emergency services, security guards, in some workplaces and schools and by inmates in prisons. In some countries, some other officials wear uniforms in their duties. For some organizations, such as police, it may be illegal for non members to wear the uniform. From the Latin unus and forma, form. Workers sometimes wear corporate clothing of one nature or another. Workers required to wear a uniform include retail workers and post office workers, public security and health care workers, blue collar employees, personal trainers in health clubs, instructors in summer camps, janitors, public transit employees and truck drivers, airline employees and holiday operators, bar and hotel employees; the use of uniforms by these organizations is an effort in branding and developing a standard corporate image but has important effects on the employees required to wear the uniform.

The term uniform may be misleading because employees are not always uniform in appearance and may not always wear attire provided by the organization, while still representing the organization in their attire. Academic work on organizational dress by Rafaeli & Pratt referred to uniformity of dress as one dimension, conspicuousness as a second. Employees all wearing black, for example, may appear conspicuous and thus represent the organization though their attire is uniform only in the color of their appearance, not in its features. Pratt & Rafaeli, described struggles between employees and management about organizational dress as struggles about deeper meanings and identities that dress represents, and Pratt & Rafaeli described dress as one of the larger set of symbols and artifacts in organizations which coalesce into a communication grammar. Uniforms are required for students in many schools in different countries. School uniforms vary from a standard issue T-shirt to rigorous requirements for many items of formal wear at private schools.

School uniforms are in place in many public schools as well. Countries with mandatory school uniforms include Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, India, Australia, U. A. E, Philippines, some schools in Taiwan, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom, among as many other places. In some countries, uniform types vary from school to school, but in the United Kingdom, many pupils between 11 and 16 of age wear a formal jacket and trousers for boys and blouse and trousers, skirt, or culottes for girls; the ties will have a set pattern or a logo embroidered for the school, jackets will carry a badge on the breast pocket with the school's name, coat of arms, motto or emblem. Jackets are being replaced in many schools by sweatshirts bearing the school badge. Children in many United Kingdom state primary schools will have a uniform jumper and/or polo shirt with the school name and logo. From about 1800 to after the Second World War, diplomats from most countries wore official uniforms at public occasions.

Such uniforms are now retained by only a few diplomatic services, are worn. A prison uniform is any uniform worn by individuals incarcerated in a prison, jail or similar facility of detention. Most, if not all, sports teams wear uniforms, made in the team's distinctive colors. In individual sports like tennis and golf, players may choose any clothing design allowed by the competition rules. To prevent the confusion that might result from two opposing teams wearing uniforms with similar colors, teams have different variations for "home" and "away" games, where one is dark and the other is light. In the four major North American sports leagues, one of the two uniforms is always predominantly white, each league except for the National Basketball Association has a rule to determine which team should wear its white uniform. Customarily, National Football League and National Hockey League teams wear their color uniforms for home games. By contrast, Major League Baseball teams wear their white uniforms for home games.

The NBA traditionally required home teams to wear white, or at least a light color, but as of the 2017–18 season allows home teams to wear any uniform color, mandating only that away teams wear a color that sufficiently contrasts with the home team's choice. These rules are not enforced, for any of the four major professional sports leagues in North America; some NFL teams, most notably the Dallas Cowboys, prefer to wear their white jerseys for home games. When Joe Gibbs was the head coach of the Washington Redskins — first from 1981-1992, again from 2004-2007 — the Redskins wore white jerseys at home games. In the United Kingdom in football, the terms "kit" or "strip" are more common. Military uniform is the standardised dress worn by members of the armed forces and paramilitaries of various nations. Military dress and military styles have gone through great changes over the centuries from colourful and elaborate to utilitarian. Military uniforms in the form of standardised and distinctive dress, intended for identification and display, are a sign of organised military forces equipped by a central authority.

The utilitarian necessities of war and economic frugality are now the dominant factors in uniform design
