London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

Back to the normal Friday look at commuters spotted on the London Underground who could be considered to be slaves to fashion. There's a bit of a theme this week which nods a bit at Nick Park's great Wallace & Gromit film
The Wrong Trousers. This week we have "The Long Trousers".

As everyone knows, there's a current trend to wear your trousers or jeans so that they are dragging across the floor. You may well be wearing a pair yourself. Amazingly I've never seen anyone trip up in them, so there must be an art to wearing them, or rather walking in them.

Long Trousers One

A nice example of the long trouser here. I think they were some form of track suit bottoms (I'm sure there's a trendier name from them, my boss was shaking her head at me last week as I had never heard of Converse shoes - but I digress), as you can just about see a zip up the back of them.

Here's a couple both wearing some particularly long jeans

Baggy Trousers

This guy was wearing my personal favourites of the week. I love the particularly attractive way they all bunch up while he is sitting down in the classic "bloke on Tube with legs wide apart" way.

That's it for this week. The previous entry for London Underground fashion victims is here and all of them together can be seen on the following Flickr set.
