In the medical field, way way before my time, doctors wore coats and ties, nurses wore starched bleached-white uniforms, and all was right with the world (I’ve seen the movies). Times change.
Now everyone wears scrubs at work, and I get why: easily cleanable, comfortable, and usually they help to cover an array of bodies that are better left unseen (and I include myself in that category).
At least, that’s how it used to be. I don’t know what’s changed in the last few years in the scrub design world, but scrubs are now, well, ill-fitting, or more specifically too revealing. Frankly it looks like a plumbers’ convention in the hospital these days, and crack is what some of the patients take, not something any co-worker wants to see, or should wish to display. I’ve seen all the multicolor thongs and undies I ever want to.
Yes, this makes me an old coot, and I’m okay with that, lets all just endeavor to keep our underwear choices a secret at work.
