 Most people have no idea what the purpose is for the tiny pocket peeking out over the right pocket of their jeans. Some people have speculated that it was designed for keys, coins, tickets, matches, lighters, etc. But the pocket is too narrow and deep to retrieve most items placed in it. So what was it really designed for? Most people have no idea what the purpose is for the tiny pocket peeking out over the right pocket of their jeans.

-A pocket watch! During the late 19th century, most men owned pocket watches; which were normally stored in their waistcoat (a.k.a. vest) pocket and attached to a chain secured to a buttonhole. Wristwatches were primarily worn by women during that time; and called “watch bracelets”. Hardworking men didn’t always own or wear a waistcoat. And placing ​their pocket watch into a pant pocket placed it at risk of being scratched or damaged by coins or other items. And it was common for pockets to tear… spilling their contents onto the ground. Men needed a separate, more protected “watch pocket” in their pants.+A pocket watch!
