No Trousers on the Tube Day 2014

Just as the temperatures are falling, true to form it's the fifth, annual
No Trousers on the Tube Ride. Get ready for trouser-less fun on Sunday 12th January 2014. As part of the Global No Pants Subway Ride, last year over 150 brave/chilly travellers made their way around the London Underground sans trousers. This year over 500 people are already signed up to take part.

As usual the requirements are simple:

1) Willingness to take trousers off on the Tube
2) Ablility to keep a straight face about it

Full details are on the Facebook page but in a nutshell the plan is to turn up at an allocated spot in Chinatown at 3pm where you will be divided into groups. The aim is to then travel from Leicester Square Tube and go around another seven zone one stops as nonchalantly & casually as possible with no trousers on.

As Rammi one of the organisers says "You can wear fun underwear if you like, but nothing that screams out, “I wore this because I’m doing a silly stunt.” Wear two pairs of underwear if it makes you feel more comfortable. Don't wear anything overly close-fitting (so no thongs, banana hammocks or mankinis) or kilts without anything underneath. We don't want people to be disgusted.
We want this event to be fun and safe for everyone, so anybody found to be removing more than their trousers will be kicked off the train and reported to the British Transport Police and station authorities.

Even if you're not brave enough to take part, the organisers are welcoming people who want to take pictures or blog about the event.  If that's you, contact Rammi or any of the organisers listed at TheStiffUpperLipSociety
