104th Stopped Pick-Pocket: iPhone Saved on Paris M4 Metro!

Editors Note: This is your 18th stopped pick-pocket in Paris!
Dear Clothing Arts,
Who knew? Just arrived in Paris Gare Du Nord and took the M4 subway. It was packed. Standing, I felt my front right zipper being tugged. Not thinking about pickpockets, I put my hand there and looked - sure enough, a man with a jacket draped over his hand to obscure it was going for my pocket.
I purchased the pants more so that my phone and wallet wouldn't fall out of my pockets, but this made me happy. I'm writing this from my iPhone that I almost lost... thanks!
