Oh yeah, for sure it's important. I mostly meant in terms of all the big items left unfinished, the simple task of designing and ordering uniform shirts seems like a drop in the bucket.
But yeah, there's something to be said about a place where the staff all have a clean and matching look compared to leaving them to their own devices when it comes to getting dressed in the morning.
