Can someone explain to me, maybe with a picture, how an on/off seam pocket looks like?

Don't some trouser makers curve the side seam forward as it goes up the hip? I swear I have seen this before. An on-seam pocket would feel much more natural that way.

Yes, mine does. The A&S ones curve even more.

Some shops though are destinations, and they expect browsers.

Still, a bespoke operation is a different story altogether. Or so I'm told...

Aside from them also being harder to get your hands into (which I agree), they also seem more likely to flare out when the trousers aren't cut right for the wearer. Slants don't seem to have this problem. Am I mistaken?

How they shape the curve of the hip and how the widest point of the hip matches your hip all matters.
I strongly dislike onseam pockets. There are not flattering and you have to reach back to access them. They don't expand enough when you put your hand in the pocket. I only use them on Tuxedo trousers and with regular pleats.
Chris, may I see some of your pants with off-seam pockets?

die, don't think onseam is harder to make or fit but I adjust the hip curve so they don't look so curved and may main dislike is the look and position of the pocket. They tend to lay still until they get stretched a bit from use.

PB, the front trouser panel is curved over the hip and the pocket follows the line.

Louis and ThinkDerm, Have a few trousers made up with onseam pockets and doing fittings with plain front, 1/4 top pockets next week, will take pics. Will post them is Despos thread since they are not Rubinacci pockets and this is off topic.
