    stiff uniform

    Hello everyone
    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "stiff" in the following context:

    Suddenly a short homely mockman entered the dining hall. It was female, dressed in the stiff uniform of a station worker.

    Does stiff refer here to the fabric the uniform was made of, i.e. stiff fabric, or does it refer to the appearance of the uniform?

    Re: stiff uniform

    My interpretation is that the uniform restricts movement - it is the material and design that are stiff.
