Ever Wondered Why Shirt Pockets Are Always On The Left? Here’s An Interesting Reason Behind It!

Shirt, modern men’s/women’s choice of attire for sophistication and ease. It’s comfy, it’s classy and it can be cool, and sometimes very very irritating when you are about to have sex as taking off those buttons from a shirt can take up some of your good time and ruin the mood. 

Reminder: Take care of shirt buttons, Stitching those buttons is a real pain in the A**. In addition, finding similar buttons can dry up your day.

Now, you can find a shirt in everyone’s wardrobe, Man, Woman, Child. In these modern times, people also make their dogs wear one. So basically everyone is going to wear a shirt at some point in their lives. Now I wasted a lot of your time, let me get straight to the question on trails:

Why are the pockets on shirts placed on the left side every time?

Yeah, it’s always on the left, for men, for women, for kids. And the reason behind this is very simple and a little biased towards right-handed people.

For a right-handed person, it is easier to pick something out of the left pocket on the shirt than if it was on the right side. The wrist movement is simple and easy. Thus, for left-handed, it gets difficult to pick out stuff from a shirt as the pocket is on the left side only.

Now if you ask why the bias? Then blame maths, Most of the people are right-handed in the world. If you want it on the left, then it will cost companies extra money and they will have to keep a count on the number of left-handed people, which is stupid. So just deal with it! or you can take this issue to the United Nations. Here is a link to their contact page. Feel free to talk to them, very friendly people.

Another Strong Reason 

If you put a coin in your shirt pocket, it can save you from a bullet. Always protect your heart, kid, always. Nevermind, she will break it, Kid.
