When you ride the train and are fortunate enough to grab a seat, quite often you are at eye level with the front zipper portion of people’s pants. Having said this, there are a lot of New York guys out there with their zippers down. I constantly see men riding the train in suits and Kennywood’s open (pittsburghese for your fly is down).
If I see a woman who is having a wardrobe malfunction, I often tell her, but I do not offer the same consideration to men. I just don’t know how to broach the subject with a complete stranger. Partially because I would be admitting I was looking that way in the first place, even thought it’s unavoidable the way the trains are packed at rush hour.
Although it does make me chuckle to see grown men in expensive suits with their flies down. It definitely cheapens the whole ensemble.
