Pockets are surely the greatest innovation in clothing design since humans first thought to cover their loins with cloth. Like miniature backpacks for your pants, not a day goes by that I don't praise pockets for their uncanny ability to be reliable, accessible and discreet.
Got some loose change after buying a coffee? Put it in your pocket! Need to carry exactly one pen with you? Use your pocket, my friend. Unnerved by the idea of carrying your credit card around in your hands all day? POCKETS!
Keep it up, pockets.
