You can see a lot of crazy stuff on the subway, like mole people, who ironically can't see you back, because they're, like, huge moles or whatever. Proving mole people aren't the only ones down there who're blind when they get dressed: Subway Couture.
Created by a downtown ad man who constantly asked himself "are these people real?", SC chronicles some of the subway's biggest outfit offenders by abutting pics of said folks w/ amusing headlines, humorous one-liners, and occasionally polls, which the people in the photos will probably lean on with their whole bodies forcing you to hold on to their booty jorts. Just a few of the unfortunately attired:
"Making a statement with a shirt roll": No need to be coy, sexed-up Mr. Miyagi, your shirt has clearly been waxed off!
"Laughing or farting?": Despite the headline, the poll queries "Is this a male or a female?", though in both cases, only its underwear knows for sure.
"Tight jeans and a rabbits foot on the belt loop...LOST": This guy clearly has no clue how to get back to his artist collective's electro-disco opening show underneath an artisanal marshmallow store in Bushwick. Seriously, none.
Plenty more's in store, including an upcoming "Freak of the Week" contest doling out prizes to photo submitters, plus a street level section called "Fish Out of Water", though it's hard for anyone to dress out of place considering how people dress on the Great Wet Way.
