Official McDonalds three-piece suit

Attention Williamsburg! This fabulous brown polyster three-piece suit, a deadstock McDonalds management uniform from 1976, could be yours for $999.95. [eBay]


  1. 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..

  2. 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.

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

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

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

    2.  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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.” 

    1.  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…

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

    1. 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).

    1. I’d like to see an angry flashmob of AR users descended on that McDonalds on some busy day.

      1. I’m glad to see it in the comments, and also can’t imagine that anyone reading boingboing would not want to hear about that. That shits fucked up and bull, too bad I haven’t been in years and will likely never enter a mickeyds again anyway.

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

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

  10. 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:

    1. I wonder if they’ll do the same thing when you show them the post about the Paris McDonalds :D

          1. I’m a health schizophrenic.  I’ll eat nothing but veggies and salmon for months, then some days I’ll go ape-shit and eat fast food and gawd only knows what else.

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

  12. 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
