I always forget it's there and rarely carry change anyway. Too hard to get your fingers in there. Does anybody use them?

That small pocket is actually for a pocket watch.....

Why do jeans have that tiny pocket? There is a reason
https://www.today.com/style/why-do-jeans-have-tiny-pocket-t113216

 It turns out that small pocket on the top right side your jeans was originally created, wait for it ... 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!

I remember when most men carried a pocket watch.  It was normal when I was a child.  But why would the jeans keep making a pocket for pocket watches when nobody carries them anymore?  In this day and age when most companies are looking for ways to cut costs, this doesn't compute!

Thanks! I like fun facts. The pocket doesn't seem large enough for a pocket watch though. I just clip my work badge onto it.

I never carry change in my pants pockets.  I very seldom will dig change out of my purse, either.
Have a wonderful day!

Yes. It is the perfect place for my iPhone ear phones.I will also put antacids in there if I anticipate an upcoming meal that might produce heart burn. Sometimes I will put a few aspirin in there if I anticipate a headache (usually after a night infused with cocktails).  Prior to age fourteen I used to keep a pocket knife in that pocket. As I became more in to school I would keep a pen in there. I no longer keep change or currency on me but that pocket would never have been used for that-money has always been near and dear to my heart and that pocket seems as if it would be an easy way for money to drop out undetected. A lot of people that I work with never use that pocket because they only carry a phone with them and that pocket is too small to accommodate a cellular phone.

I use it regularly. I wear/carry a pedometer but often put it in that small pocket rather than on a belt loop to be less conspicuous about it. Then I still have my regular full size pocket available for any other items I might be carrying that day.
