Day 25 – Clothing makers, where are my pockets?

Dear people who design clothing for a living,

Specifically the dress and skirt makers of the world, but extending to skinny jean makers who are often equally guilty of the same crime.

Why do you make women’s garments without pockets?

Seriously, I want to know. 

And don’t give me that trite answer that women carry purses and don’t need them. Because I’d at least like the option of not having to lug around a bag, when all I need for the day is a place to store my keys, phone and cash.

Not even a wallet man, just a tiny place for a phone and keys is all im asking for, I don’t even need the ability to put my hand in the pocket.

Sure, I could carry a clutch around in those cases, but they suck.

 I can never get used to them because their size means that I’m extremely likely to set it down and lose it.

Why should I need an entirely separate bag to make up for the short comings of my clothing?

Oh and fake pocket people? The ones who sew tiny areas on pants that contain the meer apperence of pockets without the functionality? 

You are the worst.

Why not just include the helpful clothing tool instead of betraying our feelings by pretending to be something you are not?

People aren’t looking at the pants and going “wow sweet non pockets”, they assume that they are just normal pockets not a bundle of deceate and lies.

You know how bad it has gotten? I now become irrationally excited when I find any woman’s garment that contain them. 

When in actuality they should be standard issue. After all, no one has ever gone, “this is an awesome pair of pants, I just wish they got rid of this weird slit with fabric attatched that I could conveniently choose to hold items in”

So to all people who make clothing for the fairer sex, please give me my dang pockets.

Signed,

Rebecca
