I still think the uniform of staff at the Grand Pacific Hotel is inappropriate for the climate and culture. It might be okay in some 'old colonial Raffles style of hotel' in Asia but it has very little to do with our local culture. It is really overdone, the hat serves no purpose of keeping off the sun or rain, the heavy looking coat, tie and trousers are not suitable for Suva's humid weather. Okay, that's what I think. I'm not criticising the man in the photo, only the GPH notion of what is suitable as uniform. Story from Fiji Times.
