Yesterday was the international day to take off your pants and ride the subway. Riders stripped down to boxers, thongs, fishnets and tighty-whities to ride the Metro. Angelenos were at an advantage: those who partook were able to enjoy balmy weather in the 70s.

The No Pants Subway Ride was started by Improv Everywhere in New York City in 2002, but it's grown into a global, pantless phenomenon. This was Los Angeles' sixth event.
