Bankers still wear suits, butchers and bakers wear aprons, golfers and football players still wear shoes with soles fixed with cleats meant to grab the ground.
On Labor Day 2014 we note that uniforms remain an ongoing presence for many workers, from the jockey in her silks to the priest in his robes.
In the workday world, many of us are known by the clothes and equipment we wear, the clothes that protect us or publicly announce us to clients, patients, fans or members of the congregation.
The red nose of a clown, the roller skates of a carhop, the hood of a beekeeper.
Our clothes define us.
At work, we are what we wear.
