牛仔裤上的秘密口袋,你用对了吗?

  Ever wonder why there's a teeny-tiny pocket above the regular ones in the front of your jeans? Or, more likely, have you ever gotten your thumb stuck in there due to its teeny-tiny smallness? Well, wonder no longer.

  有没有想过,牛仔裤口袋上方的迷你口袋用途何在?或者,更有可能的情况是,你有没有把大拇指插到这个口袋里然后拔不出来的经历?哈哈,我们今天就来揭开这个谜底。

  It's a watch pocket, originally for men who wore pocket watches and needed a protective place to store them. Though, as Levi's points out, the pocket has also served many other purposes over time, from condom storage to coin hoarding.

  这其实是一个表袋,最初是为有怀表的人设计的,怀表放在这里面刚刚好。不过,李维斯牛仔生产商也指出,这个口袋的功能多得很,放得了套套,也囤得下硬币。

  Faaahbulous!

  棒呆了啊!

  The burning question arose last week after curious minds re-discovered a Quora thread in which users have discussed this mysterious fifth pocket for years.

  上周,一些好奇人士挖出了问答网上询问牛仔裤第五个口袋用途的帖子,于是这个被讨论了多年的话题再次沸腾起来。

  The Levi Strauss blog confirms their conclusion: "The first blue jeans had four pockets—only one in back and, in the front, two plus the small, watch pocket. This extra pouch has served many functions... condom pocket, coin pocket, match pocket and ticket pocket, to name a few."

  李维斯创始人李维·史特劳斯在博客中给出了最终答案:“最开始的蓝色牛仔裤有四个口袋,背面一个,前面两个,外加一个迷你表袋。这个小口袋功能强大,能装的东西可不少,比如避孕套、硬币、火柴、票据等等。”

  The pocket appears on the oldest pair of jeans in the Levi's archives, which date to about 1879, Levi's historian Tracey Panek told HuffPost.

  研究李维斯的历史学家特雷西·帕内克告诉《赫芬顿邮报》,档案显示,李维斯生产的第一条牛仔裤上就已经出现了迷你表袋,能追溯到大约1879年。

  The more you know.
