TL;DR Top Ten List: Top 10 Fictional Uniforms We Want to Wear to Work!

Tron

In our experiences, top ten lists normally have two flaws: they're poorly formatted for quick reading and they are normally wrong. Just check all the comments of any top ten list, and you'll see lots of other folks think the list is wrong, too.

With our TL;DR Top Ten Lists, we're going to fix both problems... with your help. We're just gonna give you a couple of things on our top ten list (to make it faster to read), and you fill out the rest in the comments below (to make sure the list is accurate). Add to the list, argue with us, argue with each other, but most importantly be nice and have fun.

Today's TL;DR Top Ten List topic is:

Top 10 Fictional Uniforms We Want to Wear to Work!

Please Note: Ghostbusters' uniforms were left off this list for one specific reason: the author of this post regularly does wear his to work.

  1. Starfleet Uniform from Star Trek

    The Crew Ok, now this one is sort of a given and a toughie, all at once. At its core, we love all that Starfleet represents: the cooperation and celebration of many alien species. But there are tons of uniforms to choose from. The one we're picking here, just to settle on one, is the uniform that was first seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. There's just something so classic about it. It also looks stellar on anyone who wears it (Kirk, Uhura, Bones, anyone). And the way you can fold that one part down to look relaxed just tribbles our bits.

  2. Tron's Outfit from Tron

    Yeah, it's really tight. That could be really comfortable or really embarrassing (or a delightful mixture of the two). But... it glows. There's a helmet you have to wear all the time, which might seem weird in an office setting. But it glows. And then there's the... BUT IT GLOWS! We like the glow part. We'd wear it.

  3. Stillsuit from Dune

    Dune The stillsuit is also quite tight, but at least in the Dune universe, you could easily add clothes on top of it. It's got that face filter part, which probably would take a little getting used to, but we're ok with that. And, you can always hydrate yourself thanks to the stillsuit's beverage holding capability. Yeah, we know we'd be drinking recycled waste products, but that beats having to stop long coding sessions for bathroom breaks, right?

And now it's your turn. What do you think numbers 4-10 are? Do you agree with our numbers 1-3?

Take to the comments and help us find the Top 10 Fictional Uniforms We Want to Wear to Work!

meaningless icon! I would like to point out that the author of this post has been known to wear a Ghostbusters costume in to work. So it's appropriate that it's the first suggestion. Well played, Sabbi. ;)
