White Castle's 100th Anniversary Uniforms Feature Some Modern Twists Worth Noting
People love those little White Castle burgers. So much so that they even made a movie about two guys who battled impossible odds and embarked on the journey of a lifetime just to find some.
When Harold and Kumar finally got to that White Castle, you realized that the real hero was the guy working at the register. To celebrate heroes like him and 100 years of White Castle, the fast food chain teamed up with fashion label TELFAR to create a limited edition line of uniforms.
And if you’re going to launch a line of fashionable uniforms, who better to model them than the people wearing them every day? So, photographer Elliott Jerome Brown, Jr., enlisted some real White Castle employees across New York City to show off the new duds.
Each item includes the phrases “Celebrating 100 Years and Counting,” and “Established 1921.” And, much like other fast food chains have been doing lately, there are different pieces available for different uniform looks, like T-shirts, polo shirts, aprons, durags and visors.
The best part for White Castle fans is that you don’t actually have to work there to get these. The limited-edition drop will be available to the public as well.
"White Castle supported us before our success, and we consider them family,” TELFAR creative director Babak Radboy told Forbes.
Every one of the 10,000 White Castle employees will get to wear these stylish uniforms. But, being a limited drop like so many other fashion releases these days, it could be a quick sell amongst fans.
