Uniforms are often seen as being politically incorrect as their purpose is seen to be to stifle oh so sacred individuality. Moreover the wearer of a uniform might 'hide behind it' and commit heinous acts they might otherwise not contemplate. They are therefore often connected with oppressive regimes such as the fascists of Italy and Germany, the Red Guards of the cultural revolution in China or the franchises of McDonalds worldwide.
For this alphabet I think a classic school uniform might suffice?

Mrs W-J complains that school uniforms are not politically incorrect. We have come full circle - parents formed in the 60s saw uniforms as emblems of submission to authority, whereas now parents see them as a means of avoiding the dictatorship of label elitism which rules in schools where pupils are freed from official strictures and so bind themselves instead with those of their peers, often just as arbitrary and constrictive. See also marketing.
Now illustrated, the regulation school uniform, as modelled by Unwin and Una, who you may remember as our underwear models. All items are available from the school outfitters Phealup and Bung.
I'm tempted to do an animation, but that might be very wrong. Maybe even very, very wrong. Instead I'll put together one of those 'colour in, cut out and dress' sheets for you - coming soon (and maybe even just as wrong).
BOYS' REGULATION SCHOOL UNIFORM:
