Braving The Chilling Weather, Londoners Ditch Their Pants To Celebrate ‘No Trousers Tube Day’

Published on 8 January, 2018 at 1:56 pm By

Braving the chilling weather of January in London, thousands of people ditched their trousers to celebrate the ‘No Trousers Tube Day’ for the ninth year in a row. Every year, for one day, on the first Sunday of the year, hundreds of Londoners traveling in tubes forgo their trousers not for charity but as a chance to exercise their free will to show off their legs.

What has now become an annual tradition for the people of London began as a prank in New York back in 2002 and gradually spread to more than 60 cities worldwide including Tokyo, Jerusalem and Moscow. Despite the biting cold with temperatures dropping below the freezing point, travelers adopt the gimmick where they are inspired to travel in the tubes without donning their pants as normally as they could.

This year, the organizers The Stiff Upper Lip Society encouraged the people to join the group in Westminster after they rode trains for an hour and a half and then got together for an after-party.

As quoted by Evening Standard, the event information by the organizers read:



At 3pm, participants will be organised into groups, and will walk to a nearby station. When told to by your group leader, remove your trousers, and put them into your backpack. For the remainder of the journey, sit in the car as you normally would. Read a magazine or whatever you would normally do. 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 a thong or anything else that might offend people. Our aim is to make people laugh, not p*** them off.

Just like every year, people this year as well got involved in the event in which they were all covered for the chilling weather on the top but went bare below. As it would be illegal to go naked, people remove only their pants and not the underwear.
