Guess what the tiny pockets from on your jeans is used for..

Share This

Do you own a pair of jeans? Do you know what the tiny/little pocket insert is for? Yep, that tiny one you always wonder what it’s there for? You’re in luck if you didn’t know before now (almost everyone we asked didn’t)!
Most jeans have this pocket nested (usually) above a bigger one just by the hip bone. It’s so small it mostly can only fit a finger just a little half-way, looking pretty useless! Though it’s the perfect spot for that teeny-tiny lip gloss if you’re out and about, *wink. We digress.

The truth is it actually can’t function as a real pocket because it’s unusually tiny and it’s lodged in a ‘real pocket’. It feels like such a bother because you can’t work your head around placing or even hiding something in there because it’s annoyingly little! But did you know it was created for a purpose?

So here goes, this confusing ‘pocket’ is actually a pocket designed way back for cowboys to keep their watches (remember jeans were designed initially for cowboys? yep) safe as far back as the 1800’s!

Even top denim brand; Levi Strauss seeing a lot of confusion going on about this ‘tiny pocket’ decided to share via their website; the tiny pocket is “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 don’t worry your pretty little heads about this annoying pocket, as long as it fits that teeny weeny gloss, balm or lippie you’re using it right too. No? So what would you be doing with your own ‘tiny pocket’? Looking to stop your jeans from fading? Here you go.

Those original copper-riveted jeans had a tiny pocket to hold small pocket watches for working men, from carpenters and miners to railroad engineers. And the design stuck ever since!

Because the small pocket was meant to hold pocket watches, you won’t usually find it on suit pants. Suit jackets already have pocket watches, which makes one on the pants superfluous. Levis Strauss himself, for example, kept a pocket watch in the vest of his business suit, according to Panek.

Don’t say you don’t know anymore, now that we’ve told you… Drop your opinion in the comment section, don’t forget to like and share.
