I'm not buying them, but whatever.
You running around shirtless? How often is your coin pocket exposed? The patch-over-yoke looks about nine million times worse than a selvedge coin pocket that is only shown in the rare time that my top is pulled out of the way

There are jeans from Momotaro, Sugar Cane, Iron Heart, Flat Head, and Samurai. Seems to be fairly common depending upon the cut.
Well look at the yoke itself, it's a straight line. All other examples you posted have a proper carrier that angles up. Now look at the UO jeans, nearly straight across. That means that the patch is massively oversized in order to go across it. While the brands you chose tend to use large patches, they look nowhere near as big as the UO patches (although this could just be due to the fucked up proportions, it'll still look weird) And for those who are super crazy technical with their details, the Slim Straights use a downward facing flat felled seam, which [from what miz was told by Kuniyoshi-san] is a weaker seam than the upard facing one. And another thing about the pockets, look at how the ass on the skinny and straight slim fits eats the pocket.....
