The return of the cut purse.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

What would also work is for the pockets to be outside the clothing, and to be attached directly to a belt or shoulder straps or something that supports their weight, hanging from you rather than from your clothes.  Like the pocket belts A. Marina Fournier posted about recently, and, I see, several times in the past: https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.blue-moon-designs.com%2F&data=04%7C01%7C%7C07a8e7c76b7242dc523f08d882b10ca6%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637403044213680240%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=zSCRlnaM1XmcBCKB4RghP%2F3yIHTTy0OzXsjAdvXy2qs%3D&reserved=0.  Not that this solution would satisfy the fashion designers, I suppose.
