Do you see how happy these British McDonalds employees look? Do you know why they're so happy? It's because they finally got rid of those boring mocha and black uniforms and have replaced them with these vibrant "Mad Men"-inspired mustard, green, and plaid looks. Ignore for a moment the fact that there's nothing remotely Mad Men about these uniforms, and revel instead in the fact that our sister site Eater National has a video of designer Wayne Hemmingway showing them off.
