Found: Women’s Black Jeans with Pockets

I call this: theatre — Posted by KP @ 7:16 pm

Ladies! I have found a style of jeans that

a) come in black

b) have actual fucking pockets that can hold things

Behold, “Lee Women’s Misses Relaxed Fit Straight Leg Jean!” (Amazon link)

I now own (I believe) 5 pairs of them. And I’m just getting started. I bought 3 pairs in black, and one each in two different shades of blue, for those days when you’re like “I don’t have to wear black today, and damn it, I’m not!”

The cut is pure “mom jeans,” but you’re not buying these to win a backstage beauty pageant, are you? They’re black and they have fucking pockets, which according to my research, makes them unique among women’s apparel.

And before you think you have a pair of pants that fit the bill, I will share the cautionary tale of my favorite Old Navy “Rockstar” jeans, which several years ago were awesome, and if you buy the same style today you’ll find the pockets are about half as deep as they used to be (which is like an inch).

So stock up, this may be your last chance to purchase functional clothing!


  1. I will have to check those out!

    I’ve found these are pretty awesome (regarding pocket length) too: http://women.duluthtrading.com/store/womens/womens-pants/38506.aspx

    I also found incredible, comfortable, stylish black cargo pants at Old Navy once years ago… and then never again. WTF Old Navy. They were perfect. Sometimes I still daydream about them.
