You may NOT wear any revealing or “skimpy” clothes. If deemed too revealing, we will ask that you put your pants back on. This includes thongs, jock straps, a**-less chaps, whitey-tighties that can be seen through etc. Please use common sense. You are responsible for obeying the law.
Those are the stated rules. This is Seattle’s big, bizarre fun day-IT IS JANUARY 8th. PANTS LESS SUNDAY.
Officially called No Pants Light Rail Ride, it is just a fun, kind of bizarre way to start the new year when the weather chills. A bit like a polar bear swim.
The “No Pants” event stunt started on New York’s subways about a decade ago, and it has gained popularity in other places. Pictured are people from Seattle’s event. Word of mouth usually spreads through e-mail lists and Facebook — kind of like the Occupy Wall Street movement.
A week ago, Seattle Post Intelligencer learned that about 90 locals had RSVPed to the ride, with about 60 on-the-fence “maybes.”
“I am shaving and shivering for this event,” one fan wrote. “I am so shopping too for some lovely panties.”
The SPI pictures are from Joshua Trujillo’s blog which shows guys in pink-flowered shorts and others wearing tights. Crazy socks. Women with net stockings. Fun. The photos are from the 2011 event.
