Anyone with PDC GTO 1 year with this problem?

I just recently bought a pair of PDC GTO's in 1 year in size 32. I love the 1 year wash and they are a perfect fit for me. However, I noticed the side pockets are small as hell and I can barely take out my wallet or keys without jamming my hands and squeezing them into the pocket to fish em out. I don't have, by any standards, a large hand so I know it can't be just me. These midget pockets are starting to piss me off
Should I simply not use the pockets? Anyone with similar problems?

Hmm, the ones I have are the filter model, 2-gto-14 (size 32). The pockets are a wee bit small but not unusable. How tight are they on you around the crotch and waist area?

Maybe they are a wee bit looser on me then, although I tend to fish things out of my pockets quite often which does stretch them out. Odd. I doubt there is a difference between the filter and 1 year other than the finish - LA Guy would know if there is such a difference.

Hmmm...thats interesting...Just as a frame of reference since you have the same waist size, do you mind if you can tell me your approx. weight and height?

Sure. Between 155-160 lbs, 5.10 - 5.11 Edit: This should give you an idea. Ignore the bunching of the shirt, I pulled it to the side so you can see the pocket. As you see they are not skin tight, so the curvature of the pocket is sort of natural; it is not stuck against the rest of the trouser.

Yea, im actually not too far from your height and weight. Im 6 foot, 150 lb and from your picture I wear my jeans a bit looser I think. Regardless, it just kinda sucks cuz I like these jeans alot but the pockets piss me off. Maybe im just picky...Hopefully they'll stretch somewhat

I've pretty much moved away from using front pockets in general. Not a big fan of the buldge, especially on tigher fitting jeans. I just stick everything in my back pockets nowadays, except my cell (which I try and fit in the coin pocket).

Well, that approach certainly has its merits. I have a really flat wallet though which helps.

Edit:
I just realised how pasty I look. Yech. I have been away from home and the sea so long I am starting to look like a northern european, LOL!
