London Olympics uniform inspired by Grenadier Guards and the Beatles

Outfits to be worn by volunteers and organisers have a military theme, with colour-coded epaulettes to identify different groups. The Olympics uniforms to be worn by 70,000 volunteers and 6,000 staff next summer are influenced by the Grenadier Guards, the Beatles and Henley regatta, according to London 2012 organisers.The Adidas outfits for the so-called Games Makers and London organising committee staff unveiled on Tuesday have a vaguely military theme, with colour-coded epaulettes to identify different groups, and large coloured cuffs.
