A traditional pair of jeans has a tiny pocket just above the front pocket. What was originally supposed to be kept in the tiny pocket?
Have you ever wondered why jeans usually have a tiny pocket above the front one? Now it seems to be just a decorative element, but when blue jeans were invented, this small pocket served a pure practical function.
As you know, at the very beginning of the blue jeans history, they were bought and worn mostly by cowboys and miners. Their creators Jacob W. Davis and Levi Strauss added a small pocket so that these people could safely keep their pocket watches while working. At that time the pocket was a bit larger than it is today.
