Clothing matters. What we put on our backs informs others and about who we are right now, and what we choose to state about ourselves. Uniforms have a highly visible societal message and even worn with pride can give mixed messages between the wearer and the random viewers who cross our path.
Why, not caring about sticking cheap stuff on our backs, doesn't make sense. And actionable choices you can make on tomorrow's purchase.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
