Let's be honest. You aren't going to store anything in the pocket of your t-shirt. In fact, you might find yourself wondering what the point of a t-shirt pocket is.

I'll tell you the point. It's on a t-shirt, and it's a pocket. There is no point.

Now that we are past that, why would you even want to buy a t-shirt with a pocket on it? Maybe because:

  1. You think it looks dressier.
  2. You think it looks cooler than a normal t.
  3. You smoke cigarettes, in which case you might put the cigarettes in the pocket like James Dean in a classic movie with guys smoking cigarettes and looking cool in pocket t-shirts. (Looking cool not because they are smoking cigarettes, but because they are professional actors who just happen to be super handsome and also experts at acting cool on screen. )
  4. You just like the pockets.
