Staff will be testing out new London Underground uniforms designed by Wayne Hemingway.

The mix-and-match clothing includes new ties, shirts, jackets, polo shirts, fleeces and waistcoats and incorporates for the first time both the famous roundel London Underground logo and a full range specifically tailored for females.

Two hundred employees based at six stations, including at Harrow-on-the-Hill Station, Greenford, Perivale and Edgware Road,  and two depots are trialling the new garments for five weeks before they are introduced for workers network-wide.

Do you like the new London Underground staff uniforms?

 

Wayne Hemingway, founder of HemingwayDesign, said: “The development of the new uniform has challenged us all.

"It is vital that the new uniform does justice to one of the best transport systems in the world, in a city that is widely considered to be the most exciting in the world.

"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.”

The last time a new uniform was introduced on London Underground was in 2005.

Phil Hufton, London Underground’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."
