What to wear in London today?

Or four seasons in one tube

Everyone in London knows that the weather is shite today. I was travelling around on the London Underground just after lunch and the whole "Four seasons in one day" weather, that we get most of the time in the UK, was clearly showing in one carriage alone:


Right, this is how we are supposed to be dressed right now it's the middle of August. In fact yesterday was very hot and this would have been a bit overdressed:


This is quite similar to how I was dressed today. Long trousers, boots(!), and a long sleeved top:


Some old ladies were also in the carriage all in wintery raincoats. I managed to snap the one with the natty Burberry trimmings on the way up the escalator.


April showers and all that. Virtually everyone carried an umbrella today.

And it's still chucking it down now! Please God, don't let me see any reports about hosepipe bans and droughts!
