Soon, we will see the return of business uniforms. Businesses will brand themselves, not just by their logo, but by the clothes their employees wear. This will begin with an expansion of existing uniforms: Fast food places, in particular, will start to dress their employees in well-tailored signature uniforms. But it will quickly expand, first to sales staff in big businesses, then to white-collar employees, and, eventually, even politicians will wear uniforms that identify their positions in government.

When people are at work, it will soon be possible to identify where they work, and even what specific job they do, just by looking at their uniform. Even the President of the United States will have his own uniform, a suit and top hat with a sash.
