I have tried to research some of the top uniform sales companies, for instance Dickies, to see what they made before public schools implemented school uniforms as opposed to what they make now with so many areas now requiring school uniforms for public schools, to little avail. It's tougher than finding a needle in a haystack...

Hi. I went to a private school.. I wore uniforms.. There is no conspiracy. For starters: The prices you listed? Dirt cheap for clothes. The idea behind uniforms is that you can't have kids with $300 pair of jeans and someone with $10 pair of jeans. Everyone's clothes are roughly the same, eliminating that as a distraction for social interaction.
Do companies profit off of uniforms? Yes, because someone has to make them? It would be like me saying school without uniforms are a conspiracy because I can go to JC Penny and buy some clothes. Logically this makes no sense..

Someone drives a 32000 dollar car to work, while I drive a 500 dollar car...There is no difference between school uniforms, and instituting 'uniform' vehicles.....It's called buying what you can, and wearing what you want...
