It turns out that small pocket on the top right side your jeans was originally created, for a watch. “It appears on the oldest pair of waist overalls — the original name for jeans — in the Levi Strauss & Co. archives that date back to 1879,” said Tracey Panek, a historian for Levi Strauss & Co
Those original copper-riveted jeans had a tiny pocket to hold small pocket watches for working men, from carpenters and miners to railroad engineers. And the design stuck ever since!
Nowadays, we’ve upgraded to telling time with smart watches and phones, that teeny pocket is usually empty, but we love the idea of rethinking it for this generation’s trinkets.
