The front pocket of your jeans is a mysterious place – You know those tiny little snap buttons on your that have always been stuck to your pocket seams that have nothing to do with anything, but no one really knows why.
On our quest to solve the Pocket Mystery, we’ve uncovered a groundbreaking fact that puts us one step close to unraveling all the ~denim enigmas~. Elite Daily reports that those little metal buttons aren’t actually buttons at all. They’re called rivets and they’re not meant to snap onto anything, even though they really look like they should.
Apparently, rivets were put in place to prevent wear and tear on the corners of pocket seams. Since pockets go through a ton of strain when you sit/put things in them, the rivets are supposed to prevent what we’ll call a “SpongeBob moment.”
In the end it’s your decision, but we strongly suggest you share this on social media. After all you do want to share it don’t you?
