I’m sure everyone has noticed that tiny, little pocket on the right side of your jeans and wondered what it’s doing there. Especially considering the fact that it’s inside a pocket which is functional and big enough.

What makes it more puzzling is that the pocket inside the pocket is not even hidden away. It’s not a secret pocket; it’s right there in plain sight.

So what is the point of that little pocket?


Well, being a guitarist, I could say that I use it for keeping my guitar pick.


Or, carrying that small pendrive, which gets lost easily if placed inside a bag.


Some even call it the “condom pocket”.


Broke men hoard change inside it!

But did you know what it was originally meant for?

It was originally a watch pocket!


Back in the 1800s, cowboys used to wear their watches on chains and keep them inside their waistcoats. To keep them from breaking, Levi Strauss introduced a small pocket where it could be securely placed. 


But most of us use it for condoms, don’t we?
