The front pocket of your jeans is a mysterious place — there's that weird little pocket that we only just figured out had a purpose, there's a bigger pocket that usually isn't even roomy enough to fit your phone (why even be a pocket then?!), and there are those random little silver buttons that have always been stuck to your pocket seams, but no one really knows why.
