Historical research explains that work uniforms emerged as far back as the middle ages. Workers would wear symbols to indicate who they worked for; and their job role. For instance, royal messengers would wear badges with emblems representing the dignitaries which they served – a bit like the company logos of today. Likewise, merchants, the retailers of years gone by, would wear badges to indicate they were members of a wider trading society by means of guaranteeing a higher quality of goods to their customers.
