Why do jeans have small pocket?

images (1)Your wardrobe is definitely not complete if you don’t own a pair of jeans. But did you ever wonder why their exists a tiny pocket above the main pocket?

Well the answer lies 200 years ago.Back in 1800’s, when jeans where far away from treated as fashion symbol.Infact they were used by cowboys ,miners and factory workers. Watches were not the contemporary wrist watches ,instead pocket watched were in vogue.Hence they were to be kept inside the waistcoat.

However it was difficult for a cowboy to keep his watch intact as it might get broken.Therefore, Levis introduced a new prototype of jeans with the introduction of the tiny pocket especially to keep the pocket watch.

The prototype became so prevalent that it became standard model and now the tiny pockets are used for keep coins and bits.
