How did Uniforms Come to Be

Today, we think of uniforms as a norm, whether you're ordering your favourite coffee from your local coffee establishment, or heading for a checkup at your closest hospital, you will always manage to find staff in uniforms, each representing their companies, offices, or brands. But a long time ago, that simply wasn't the case. As detailed in the article "Occupational Uniforms in History", uniforms actually began in the very households of aristocracy, where different styles and colours of uniforms show what department or household each staff is from.
