Editor's Note: This is your 3rd known stopped pick-pocket in Florence!
Dear Clothing Arts,
I'm a believer. I bought two of the cargo shorts to use on our Italian vacation and they did the trick yesterday. I was in Florence, waiting in front of a restaurant, when someone tried to pick my pockets.
There was a mobile vendor behind me and the pickpocket was pretending to shop it while bumping against me and groping my pockets. I was fully aware of what he was doing and, on his second attempt, smiled at him and waved him off. Busted, he scrambled away.
These things are great. They take some getting used to but, with some practice, you can get to what you need to without too much delay.
