Obviously, snatchers and pickpockets know designer brands only because they have to know if their target has money. You can be presentable without flaunting your designer clothes.

I can advise you that one of the best ways to get mugged in Philippines is to give criminals the idea that you are rich by flaunting your wealth through what you wear.

Yes, it would look very pleasing especially in the eyes of the snatchers or pickpockets. Once they see you wearing high-end accessories, they will rejoice like a kid who is about to enter Willy Wonka's chocolate factory for the first time. Basically, you'll be the factory and the snatchers will be your guests.

Now why in the world would you wear a formal outfit with matching diamond accessories while commuting in a third world country? Unless your diamonds are not real or you're a lunatic who wants to show off, then go right ahead.

Easy access clothes are clothes that can easily be worn, like loose dresses, or clothes with big open pockets or pockets without zippers, while easy access bags are bags without zippers or any closing.

If you can access your stuff easily, then it only means it gets easier for the pickpockets.

Look pretty. If you look like you can buy a lot of products for your face, then you also look like you probably won't leave your house without a lot of money in your pockets. Another reason why snatchers should steal your bag.

I get it, you are very techie but can you at least wait until you get home before turning your gadgets on? On the other hand, since you want to flaunt your gadgets, why not get a string, tie your gadgets and just hang them outside your bag, that way it's easier for pickpockets to grab what you have.

You are commuting, honey! Skimpy clothes equals attraction. People will be looking at you and would probably want a piece of you or probably whatever you have with you.
