    Male transit drivers 'skirt' the dress code in Stockholm

    More than a dozen male employees working for the Roslagsbanan train services in the Swedish capital have been wearing skirts in order to keep cool.



    One of the drivers, Martin Åkersten, explained that temperatures can hit 95F (35C) in the train cab during the summer.



    Uniform regulations by the train company Arriva state that skirts or long trousers are acceptable. At a meeting last year, drivers were told that shorts were not allowed.



    They have given their blessing to the men wearing skirts however.



    "To say anything else would be discrimination," Thomas Hedenius, the communications head, told the local Mitti newspaper, cited by the Local website.

    My husband did that in high school. Same deal, skirts were allowed, shorts not. So the boys wore skirts.

    Yep. To high school. For a couple of really hot days toward the end of the school year.
