London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

It's Friday's look at Tube Fashion Victims, TFV's or commuters spotted on the Underground where the fashion police have had a day off or commuters have taken a style and made it their own.

Wash with care

I can't believe that this woman was seriously wearing a dress like this unless she was at an exhibition.
Washing Instruction Dress

On the occasions when I'm at exhibitions (I'm actually at the NEC today), I'm lucky that I don't have to wear a "uniform" apart from a T-shirt with the company's branding on it. But if I did have to wear a uniform I wouldn't wear it home. Her bag looks big enough for her to have been able to carry a change of clothes. So perhaps she does get a kick out of wearing a dress with massive washing instructions on it. The mind boggles.

Croc and Roll

I loved this couple's footwear. He was going for the wannabe rock star look with gold snakeskin or even crocodile skin look boots. She was at the other end of the scale with some purple Crocs.

Croc and roll

I was in Guildford last weekend and saw someone trying on a silver pair of Crocs. Is the trick with Crocs to buy the most brightly coloured ones you can? Do they even come in colours which aren't dayglo or scream (and with apologies to Kath & Kim) "look at me, look at me"?

Now to finish with two terrific guest spots.

Holey Moley

John Spier spotted the perfect TFV

Holy Shirt

He said "Saw this guy on the Northern Line - and it was obvious what had to be done - snap him and send it to you!". If you click onto John's flickr profile you'll see that TFV3 is really posing for the camera as well. He's clearly in serious need of some moth balls for his wardrobe.

Dipsy Wipsy

Finally someone who hasn't quite got the Green Goddess look right.

Teletubby Dipsy

Snapped by Fabien who said "I saw a Teletubby on the Tube last week at Blackhorse Road. Didn't know the Victoria line went to Teletubby Land." I love the look of horror on the guy staring back at her.

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