London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

Here's this Friday's look at our slaves to fashion on the Tube or people with their own personal style when it comes to clothes.

The Last of the England Shirts

Taken last Saturday when England got knocked out of the World Cup. Let's hope that these shirts get knocked out the these ladies' wardrobe

End of football shirts

I've never been wild about women wearing football shirts and I think with this picture you can see why.

Platform Shoes 1

Someone is bound to like these (obviously apart from the woman wearing them), but goodness knows why

Red Platform Shoes

There's a lot of velcro attachments going on with these things (she's coming out in sympathy with her male friend on the left). But hers look like trainers that got mixed up with some 1970's style patent leather red platforms with a nod back to school plimsolls as well.

I don't think the black lace skirt does her any favours either.

I'd like to finish with some brilliant guest entries

Twiggy Dungarees

Twiggy Dungarees

Nice shot by Fimb of a guy with some short dungarees. Fimb said "I know crop trousers are rather fashionable, but crop dungerees, with knee length socks?! I chased him all round Waterloo trying to get a decent shot after we saw him on the Tube (but not in a position that I could easily takes pics) It looked much better from the front, but the escalator shot was all I could manage!"

Platform Shoes 2

Platform shoes

This couple were taken by Martin who said "They are dressed in what could probably best be described as "goth chic", but the fella's shoes really caught my attention. Mainly because they appeared to be more like planks of wood than shoes. Part of me likes to think he made them himself, but it's more likely that he paid a
hundred quid for them

Words fail me!

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.
