Could not agree more, I think it disgraceful the manner in which postman dress for work, which they have been doing for a few years now. An appalling example of modern day standards. Their uniform, which appears to comprise of an array of trousers, shorts, shirts, pullovers and fleeces, worn in whatever combination they want, rarely looks as if it has been washed or ironed. I apologise to those postmen/women that do take the trouble to look as if they have some pride in themselves.

I think you should look more at how the postman is than to what they wear. Why should they not be allowed to wear warm jumpers in the winter and shorts in the summer. All the postmen i encounter are polite and will stop for a chat!

Seriously! How does a scruffy postman affect your daily business etc.... perhaps you'd like to pay more for the service and then instead of investing in better systems perhaps they could invest in new uniforms. The post will get later and later and on some days be non existant, buts that ok, He looks smart. How much of a boring life do you have to be affected by a postman in shorts.

this is a bit crass, most people don't have to waer a uniform to work at alll, they would look like prats in tweed. Most wear an orange flashy jacket cos they start before dawn when it's dark and cold, if you don't have to do that then leave them be.

My father in law was a postman. He said that his generation returned from the war with the benefit of perhaps five years of military discipline, and returned to the Post Office proud to work in this public service. Collar and tie, cap, pressed trousers and polished shoes; The job had status. And a salary to match.
These days, only young men or women looking for a second income can afford to work as a postman. Sadly, as the industry declines so do the standards.

I have no problem with postie's wearing shorts etc, you miss the point. Many of them, whatever they wear, do not appear to wash the clothes they wear or press them. In or out of uniform I always went to work looking clean and smart, many royal mail staff simply do not. Like many working people they represent the company they work for and, in my opinion, should present a image of which they and the company should require. The blame for the fall in standards, I assume, must lie with the employer for allowing their workforce to present themselves to the public in the scruffy manner they do.

Having read some of the comments on this thread I appears that how we present ourselves to others, in the workplace or life in general, comes down to the level of respect one has for oneself

There is a saying - "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have" - so I guess they want to be dustmen!
The young idiot in Plumpton drives like a cant and never wears a seatbelt, parking on blind bends etc.

Some of you on this forum have got nothing better to do than complain about posties being scruffy. Jesus wept, you're a deluded lot.
You really need to get out in the big wide world and open your eyes a bit rather sitting there peering out from behind your ikea curtains.
Absolutely pathetic
