In life and in the world of fashion precisely, there are few things that remain a mystery to us, and we never bother to find out. For some of us who are curious minds, it’s good to know the truth. One of this things is the small pocket in our jeans.
We’ve all learnt the significance of a particular piece of clothing that has had people baffled for generations. Well at least some of us are.
We all know that little pocket on our jeans? The one that doesn’t really function as a pocket due to its tiny size, that sits inside an actual pocket which does actually function as anything.
Thanks to someone who was particularly curious on forum who couldn’t live in a world where that pocket’s function wasn’t known have gone and discovered its use.
The small little pocket inside a pocket is actually for watches, designed for cowboys in the 1800s. But since we are in 2018 and we are, for the most part, not cowboys, these pockets have taken on new guises.
It says on the Levi Strauss website, “Originally included as protection for pocket watches, thus the name, this extra pouch has served many functions, evident in its many titles: frontier pocket, condom pocket, coin pocket, match pocket and ticket pocket, to name a few.”
So if you’re reading this, congratulations! you now know why you have those small pockets in your jeans.
