Recently I saw a movie, "The Intern" featuring Robet De Niro as
retired guy who decides he still needs to work. So he becomes
intern at a start-up Internet fashion-sales company, the only
wearing a suit while everyone else is casually dressed.
But he has a secret weapon, handkerchiefs
in a vest pocket of
suit, which exists specifically for that purpose. The hankies are
essential not for one's own nose, but for when a lady needs to
a good cry.
Well, here I am casually dressed, wondering how I can manage
have a hanky-holding pocket when all my usual pockets are full
other stuff. I do prefer to Be Prepared for various
circumstances. I don't want to wear a suit, so...I need a way to
an extra pocket.
Thus this Idea. Some might call it a pouch instead of a pocket,
but even if it was called a pouch, I'm not sure of any that are
available that can be clipped onto one's belt or the waistband of
one's pants. I might even want two or three of them....
You can clip on as many pockets as you need. [xenzag, Feb 21 2016]

||I was thinking this might be marketed to naturists. The standard issue pockets we come with are all associated with various biological functions.
