Also I find it odd in principle to have pockets but not be able to use them. Jeans are supposed to be utilitarian, right? We are getting to the point of girls who cannot use their pockets at all.
BTW I dont carry many keys at all. I have about 4 normal keys and one of those slightly larger electronic car keys.
Yeah, I'm somewhat uncomfortable with the clash between expensive fashion and a work-a-day lifestyle. Today I volunteered to mow my mother's lawn, but the only shoes I wore home were my tan suede sneakers, which would not take well to grass stains. Sneakers are also supposed to be all-purpose footwear, so why do I have sneakers that I can't use for fear of getting them dirty? It's a little silly, but I put up with it because they make me look awesome the rest of the time. I guess the jeans are the same way, as ridiculous as it sounds we make sacrifices for our fashion.
On the other hand, you might get some interesting fade marks from your phone, sort of the new-millenium version of wallet fading only somewhat bizarre and inappropriate. I have a big clunky Nokia which is very awkward in my front pocket, so I haven't really solved this problem other than reducing my keys and wallet and carrying a bag or coat 90% of the time... but I'm in New England so if you go out without a coat most of the time you're a little bit nuts anyway.
