Case of the Fridays
Participants in the 13th annual International “No Pants Subway Ride” were out in force Sunday in more than 60 cities across the globe. Started in 2002 with only seven participants, the idea behind “No Pants” is that random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter, without wearing trousers. The participants wear all of the usual winter clothing on their top half such as hats, scarves and gloves and do not acknowledge each other’s similar state of undress.
A Case of the Fridays: On Jan. 13, fans around the world of the “No Pants Subway Ride” took to the subways, shedding their pants and showing off an array of underwear for the 12th annual event. From the frayed to boxers and briefs and leopard-print knickers, here’s a look at snapshots from the day.
