Sweden's Male Train Drivers Wear Skirts Following Row Over Uniform
The men, who operate trains north of Stockholm, wanted to wear shorts during warmer weather but were forbidden from doing so after their train line was taken over by a new company this year. The drivers said they collectively decided to wear skirts once summer started because they were much more breathable than pants.
"The passengers stare at us but so far no one has said anything - well, not to me, anyway. And I don't mind as it's more about comfort," one driver told the BBC.
