I saw an ad in the New York Times today for "PICK-POCKET PROOF PANTS," and I thought, Is that really a big problem? Is it a problem AT ALL?
I've never had my pocket picked and I don't think I know anyone who has. I didn't even know pick-pocketing was still a thing. Where does it take place, besides old black-and-white movies? Race tracks? Boxing matches? Train stations?
Are these pants a solution in search of a problem?
