“Professor Vorthys lumbered in, dressed for the day in his comfortable rumpled suit, scarcely more form-fitting than his pajamas. It was tailor-made garb, appropriate to his status as an Imperial Voice, but he must, Miles reflected, have driven his tailor to despair before coaxing just the fit he wanted, With lots of room in the pockets, as he'd once explained to Miles while the Professora rolled her eyes heavenward. Vorthys was stuffing data disks into these capacious compartments. "Are you ready, Miles? ImpSec just called to say they'll have an aircar and driver waiting for us at the West Locks.”

Excerpt From: Lois McMaster Bujold. “Miles in Love.” iBooks. 

Right after Miles gets Niki out of the bathroom. Some tailors and men’s clothing salesmen think pockets should be empty,
as putting stuff in them ruins the lines. I find this attitude most annoying, not to say impractical.
