  1. And if you’re lucky, you might find a fry in the pocket. Yum!

  2. Ronald McDonald would be quite the studmuffin wearing that…

    Take that UPS!

    Funny, that was (and still is) a good quality suit manufacture.  I believe the prez gets his suits from them.  Still made in the USA..

    Does it smell like french fries? Because if it doesn’t, no way it is genuine McD’s.

    It was the 70′s, people wore suits a lot more than today.  My father was a low level manager at a large corporation and was wearing at least the slacks, button up shirt, and a tie (jacket was when he needed to be around the upper management).  By the time he retired in the mid 90′s that position only had the dress requirement of decent slacks/khakis and a polo shirt.

    Gotta say, considering the decade its from, that is a rather sharp looking suit. Shame we don’t require that level of dedication anymore.

    Skid-mark brown. Delicious.

    Is that polyester?  I usually know a fabric when I taste it… but oh god no…

    Don’t embed a camera in that suit, some jerks might just beat the crap out of you.

      When I saw the headline, I just assumed that it was a creative way at getting into this assault story.

    •  The McDs in Paris has been sued many times by corporate to take the franchise back since it was so filthy and gross back in the 70′s and 80′s. I don’t know if they ever succeeded.  Perhaps a cultural thing about photos?  Or just good old fashioned Paris rudeness?

    Reminds me of the day-glow orange polyester 3-piece suit that a punk rock friend liked to wear in the eighties.  But not as nice, seeing as it’s not day-glow orange.

    You know someone wore a suit like this & said, “Guys! No idea what’s happening with all of those coffee stirrers with the little spoon at the end, but we must stop it… We must prevent any further loss of those coffee stirrers with the little spoon at the end.” 

    • Gilbert Wham says:

       Well, a level one of those spoons used to be a tenner’s worth of heroin, so I can tell you where quite a few of them went…

    Finally, something to wear on my wedding day.

  14. gumbowing says:

    Hideous! What makes it worth $1000?
    And hard to believe Hart, Schaffner & Marx made it in polyester.
    It’s circa 1976 but still…

    • penguinchris says:

      They, along with lots of mid- to high-end brands, used loads of polyester in the 70′s, 80′s, and early 90′s. Check out some thrift stores and check the labels of the suits (and dress shirts and everything else), you might be surprised what you find from well-respected brands that wouldn’t dream of using polyester today.

      I have a really nice HS & M jacket made of a high-quality wool, bought at a thrift store. But I see tons of jackets from them at thrift stores, and most I see are made with nasty polyester blends (which aren’t as bad as 100% poly, but still pretty bad).

  15. I’d wear that, but just the jacket, no shirt.  I’d wear scrubs as pants and Teva style sandals.  I’d rock.

    btw, here’s a news that ought to be highlighted : Steve “Cyborg” Mann has been assaulted by McDonald’s thugs because of his digital eyetap glasses !!!

    I’ve lived in Williamsburg for 10 years.  Rob, do you really think someone here would wear that?

  19. howaboutthisdangit says:

    Is this what Ronald wears to the office?  Does it come with a red nose and oversize dress shoes?

  20. Cowicide says:

    Thanks, Boing Boing! I just showed this post to two top corporate people from McDonald’s and they gave me two free oatmeal cards to go get breakfast with.

     I’m not kidding, BTW:

    Looks like something a fast food meth kingpin might wear… Just need some round spectacles.

  22. darrrrrrn says:

    Mmmm, meat colour

  23. The angels wanna wear his red shoes.

  24. slabman says:

    If you wear that to the London Olympics, your path will be strewn with rose petals. Conversely, if you wore a suit with a Burger King logo, you’d be taken out by a .50 calibre round from a sniper rifle
