Here are my useless drunk thoughts on this ridiculous but enjoyable topic. Ignore at will gentlemen:
1. The TTC staff should not be wearing golf shirts, they should be wearing proper shirt and tie, both male and female. That is what they do in Hong Kong, where I am. So do all government staff. No sloppy cardigans, golf shirts or crap. We pay your salary, now look the part. Golf shirts are not formal enough for service staff, especially Public Service staff. Not Canadian. Not impressed. Hong Kong government staff take pride in their dress, and act accordingly. They were taught well by the English overlords. And they like it.
2. However: I don't blame them on the colour. Toronto is navy blue colours, whites, and some rusty reds for the street cars.It is not Crimson and bright Royal blue, which is french. The 'designer' is an idiot.
3. And more on the 'designer': The design sketch is a ****ing joke. A blurry 'something' in blurry 'outfit'. WTF? Amateur hour. I would think that in Toronto they might actually have a big fashion house or two that could actually draw a human being in uniform. Look at the drawings for Montreal's Olympic uniforms in 76 for god's sake, they were fantastic.
They should just wait till the Leafs make the playoffs again in 10 years and they're all outside the ACC having a party, then have the vote on the colours. No one would care and everyone can go right along living their lives.
