Tube workers are to be issued with a new uniform designed by Red or Dead co-founder Wayne Hemingway.
The update, the first in a decade, incorporates the world famous London Underground roundel logo on shirts, pockets, jacket cuffs and zips.
Staff will have a choice of garments they can mix and match including, for the first time, items specifically tailored for LU’s female employees.
The new uniforms will be trialled by 200 staff at six stations and two train depots over the next five weeks to allow any necessary modifications to be identified before the uniforms are introduced at all stations next year.
Phil Hufton, LU’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “This new modern uniform has been developed hand in hand with our staff, and reflects both our heritage and our diversity.
“The new designs will help give our customers an even better service by making our staff even more recognisable to them.”
Mr Hemingway added: “The London Underground community have been a vocal lot during the design and development process and rightly so when it comes to something that they have to wear more for longer than anything else in their wardrobes.
“Their welcome feedback has, we believe, resulted in a uniform that is fit for purpose, technological in its materials and will prove to be instantly recognisable to the public.
“The next few weeks will give us all a chance to refine these samples and deliver a uniform that really adds to a great brand, a great transport system and a great city.”
