Overdone: Jean Pocket Edition.

Posted on August 20, 2009 in Casual, Denim, Fit Lesson, Outfit Ideas, Pants, Style Theory.

I don’t know when the line between women’s and men’s jeans became so blurred, but I can tell that some guys are confused. Jean pockets for guys are not a place to showcase personality. As I mentioned before, a man’s style should be simple and clean. Leave the cutesy patterns to the women-folk.

Think classic Levi’s pockets, and that’s it.

Here’s a checklist:

Elaborate flaps over your pockets?

(seriously?) No.

Anything that glitters?

Embroidered designs?

Multiple colors of thread?

All of the following do NOT work.

    Here’s a tip (from a personal experience with overdone pockets):
    holding a degree in textile and apparel design often leads to requests from friends to alter their clothing. in one such instance a guy friend found the perfect fitting pair of jeans that just so happened to have horribly emblazoned pockets. he brought them to me. i grabbed a seam ripper. after a lot of ripping threads, the decorative stitching was removed. after some ironing and washing, the traces of the stitches were hardly noticeable.

    Great point…there is very little that a good tailor (or good friend) can’t do to correct.

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this
    onto a friend who had been conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me breakfast due to the fact that
    I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this issue here on your
    web site.
