That wonderful Hans Anderson tale 'The Emperor's New Clothes', where the king convinced his sycophantic subjects that he was wearing fine robes when in fact he was starkers, until a small boy blurted out the truth and shattered the illusion.
This is akin to the uniform business; over and over again John Marks sees uniforms in hotels and clubs that are extremely unflattering, doing nothing for the establishment or the staff.
The uniforms chosen on a whim, without a good concept and consideration and as a result lacking taste and style.
The shy employees or the colour blind say nothing, while the staff feel embarrassed, and the establishment makes a wrong impression.
Where is the little boy to say ‘stop, the king is not naked but worse - badly dressed’.
Let John Marks not only be that little boy but design and manufacture stylish uniforms that will result in the crowd exclaiming in one breath " Wonderful, Marvelous , Gorgeous, How smart, and so Inexpensive!".
As Mel Brooks said: ‘being King is great’
