Ever Wondered Why These Small Buttons On Your Jeans Pocket Exist?

Blue Jeans and Denim are an integral part of our casual culture. Whether dark-washed or cut-off, dressed up or casual. Styling yourself to a club with a Pair of jeans on an Oxford shirt has never gone out of style.  We just slip into these blue chic pants and voila!  We are done getting ready.  

What's more, designers continue getting more experimental with denim and jeans than ever before – dressing jeans up with all possible combinations, or ripping them apart in all new ways, And Celebs continue styling themselves and inspiring the blue jean look. But there's something that hasn't changed and has remained same throughout, can you take a guess what that might be? I'm pretty sure you've noticed those smaller pockets above the bigger ones, and what those irrelevant buttons on the jean pockets. 

Have you wondered what they're there for? They clearly don't seem to hold anything neither do they help close our pocket. So then, what are they for?

We wear them for utmost comfort and to mention they even give us a dressy feel if we pair it up with a dressy shirt.
