Editors Note: This is your 17th stopped pick-pocket in Paris and milestone 100th (and 101st!) known stop since Pick-Pocket Proof Travelwear started shipping around the world!
Dear Clothing Arts,
I was boarding the Paris metro near Notre Dame Cathedral with my wife and two friends the last week of September. Four males all converged at the boarding gate with one large male purposely trying to cram us all together as we boarded the train even though there were not that many people on the train. So I had a pickpocket on either side of me trying to get through the pants pockets. After about a minute I figured out what was going on and stepped away from them both.
The one on my right had managed to unbutton the strap but failed to get the zipper down. The man on my left failed completely. At the next stop, we all exited and these clowns quickly vanished looking for easier prey. Even local Parisians who were sitting on the train approached us after and asked if we realized that they were trying to pickpocket me. I’ve owned these pants for over a year and this is the first time I really had a chance to put them to use.
Thanks Clothing Arts!
