Okay, I can see where this was a limitation of the internet medium.
I don't advocate loading your pockets up with heavy items, either. I will carry moneyclip, pen, small knife, etc. in various pockets. I have also placed my hands in coat pockets before, and will again.
At some point, they are just clothes. Wear them until they're no good, and get new ones.
