I assume we have been speculating. And in spite of our best efforts, we were unable to come up with a meaningful purpose for this little pocket.
Little banknotes, a mobile phone, or other items cannot be kept there since there is insufficient space for them. the keys, too? You’ve got to be joking; getting the key is not feasible for you.
But don’t worry—the British tabloid The Independent claims to have the solution to the age-old riddle, and it’s probably not what you’d expect.
You might have given it some thought now and then. All jeanstypically have two front and two rear pockets whether they are for men or women.
One of the front pockets occasionally has a little pocket as well. Why, though, is it there?
It’s fascinating because we will need to go back almost 200 years to pinpoint the origin. That little thumbnail-sized pocket was more of a functional solution to a problem that no longer existed than a stylish addition to pants.
The brilliant concept was created by the well-known Levi’s jeans firm.
According to The Independent, the first “additional” pocket was developed in the 1800s. The explanation is that at the time, cowboys were the group most likely to be seen wearing jeans.
Cowboys used to either tuck their little pocket watches beneath their jackets or fasten them to a strap while riding, but both techniques led to the watch tumbling and shattering.
As a result, Levis began producing pants with a little pocket to protect the pocket watch.
The clock was placed in the cowboys’ pockets so they could ride without worrying that it may break. Smart!
I’m sorry, but I didn’t know that. It’s astonishing how well the appearance has held up with jeans throughout time. Although there are no longer any cowboys, their watch pockets still exist!
