Okay jacket manufacturers you win! Obviously you are in cahoots with handbag manufacturers and I get it. This is something I picked up on a long time ago, but it has taken me until now to start waving my white flag. Can we have a truce or do you insist on continuing to torture me well into the future? Do you understand how your little “pocket game” is inconveniencing others? You may think that you have won because I have been trying unsuccessfully for years to beat you at your little game. However, those around me do not appreciate having to pick up your slack.
All I am asking is for one measly inside pocket. You make them for men’s jackets, so I know it is possible. Why can’t any of my coats have one as well? Men have 3-5 pockets in a jacket and I’m lucky if I get 2. Why is that? I have much more stuff to carry then a guy. Has it ever crossed your mind that I do not wish to always carry a bag with me? Maybe I want to have both hands free, without having to rock the “across the body strap” look, so I can shop or interact with others freely. Although there are plenty of trendy purse choices out there, I just don’t want to be bogged down with holding it at all times. I admit I like a stylish purse and have a few, but that is not an admission of not needing an interior pocket like my male counterparts.
Gals, it’s time we unite and stand up for our right to bear a lip gloss inside of our jackets where it won’t slide out and onto the floor every time we sit down. It’s time we take a stand against forcing others to carry stuff for us so we don’t have to cram it into the tiny pockets in our pants. It’s time that we show these jacket manufacturers who’s boss and stand up for our much needed 3” x4” strip of additional fabric that would solve all our problems. Who’s with me? Hello? Bueller…Bueller…Anyone? Seriously, am I the only one who thinks about the convenience of added interior jacket pockets? Fine. Continue on with your adorable purses, but one day you too will tire of having the burden of a bag and flip over to my side. It might not be today, but rest assured I will continue hoping that jacket companies come around.
