Wavey. Deliveroo LONDON — There’s an unusual new cult fashion item in town: Deliveroo jackets.
The visually striking uniforms worn by couriers for the London food delivery company have quietly developed a reputation in some circles as a niche fashion item, and are being traded online on streetwear forums.
