Ever Wondered Why Jeans Have That Tiny Pocket Just Above The Front One?

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?
