London Underground Fashions Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

It's Friday and time again for the TFV's or Tube Fashion Victims, commuters spotted on the Underground with their own special look.

Backwards Coat

A guest post this week snapped by
John Spier at Kings Cross

He said, "It appears to be a coat with the buttons on the back!". Which begs the questions - did it have matching buttons on the front? Or perhaps there were no buttons on the front and she was going for the straitjacket or rather straitcoat look.

When your man bag's too small

Nice Metrosexual look going on here:

Man bag too small for gloves

Gucci designer belt, check. Calvin Klein underwear showing at just the right level, check. Over shoulder man bag, check. Box fresh white trainers, check. Woolly gloves hanging from belt. Erm, not so sure.

I suppose it puts you in a bit of a quandary when your pockets are too small to hold your gloves. Particularly if you don't want any disturbance to the smooth lines of your skinny jeans or denim jacket. But why didn't he put them in his man bag? I could be doing him a disservice here, as it might not be a man bag, but a camera bag. Although judging by the rest of the metrosexual look, I think my first instinct is correct. Perhaps it's an unusual winter version of the hanky code.

That's it for now. The previous set of victims can be found here and the complete picture gallery can be seen on the following Flickr set.
