Memories of High Wycombe: Business Dress, 2000.

John Lewis Business Dress 1990
John Lewis Heritage Centre archive

When I first joined 15 years ago in 2000 I remember our uniform… navy skirt (straight with two pleats),  a green blouse with navy spots with rounded collar and a navy blazer. We wore a square badge with the John Lewis logo.

The uniform was awful; really old fashioned… no individuality… very strict. Managers were allowed to wear suits.

The introduction of new business dress followed. I wore a suit. Nobody abused it… there were no short skirts!
