"Your jacket's zip is open close it."

"Your pant's zip is open close it."

Please check.

I would say the person's zip is undone, though I would only regard it as worth mentioning in the second case- the first is a matter of preference.

In both cases you need a full stop (period) after 'open'.

In BrE, it would be natural to say "Your jacket zip's undone. Do it up."

Growing up in a farming community, I learned, "Your barn door's open!" We didn't care about jacket zippers...

For some eccentric reason, there's egg on your chin has the same meaning in BrE.

What's a fly then? As in 'zip your fly'.

It's a fly, but we expend an extra word in that statement. We say zip up your fly.
