History On This Tiny Pocket Jeans

Have you ever wondered what is the purpose of this tiny pocket on your jeans for?

The tiny pocket can barely fit anything. There’s actually a reason for it and no, it’s not for your salary.

So then what is it for exactly?

It turns out that little pocket has been a staple on most jeans ever since 1879.

Back in history year 1879, the original name for jeans — in the Levi Strauss & Co, it was originally created to store a cowboy’s or workman’s pocket watch.

The tiny pockets would hold pocket watches that carpenters, miners, and railroad engineers would often carry. 

The watch was secure and would fit snugly into the pocket, without it being too tight or too loose, and was easy to access.

And the design has just stuck ever since!

Although most people probably don’t use it for watches today, Levi’s website points out that the tiny pocket has served other purposes over time, from storing condoms to coins.
