A right thumb holder?

I ordered a pair of L.L.Bean 5-pocket jeans today from their catalog.

I'm sure I would have ordered them if they were only 4-pocket jeans as well.

It got me thinking...what's the purpose of the 5th pocket, the tiny little pocket, usually just inside the upper right front pocket?

Do you know?

Have you ever put anything in it other than a thumb?

  1. I believe that back in the day they were used for pocket watches. I use mine for my zippo though.
