Royal Mail delivers a new uniform for postal workers

Britain’s postmen and women have a new uniform – the first change in a decade.

Although still pillar box red, the outfit includes walking trousers and shorts, tops, jackets, gilets, and headwear.


The design has been based on feedback from workers across the country.

A Royal Mail spokesman said: “We worked closely with our people to come up with these designs which are poised to help them in their highly physical jobs while reflecting the shift towards more parcels.”

The fresh look was created by experts in design, fabrics and product development.

They collaborated with a leading industry expert in biomechanics.

A national rollout follows a three-month trial.
