    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hi,

    I am a bit confused with the two. While I do know what a western pocket should look like. I told a tailor about having western pockets and doing the appropriate gesture on my own pants, and he said 'Ah, cross pockets.'

    Now, is there a difference between the two?

    I think, and only I think, judging from picture (drawings, actually), that cross pockets cover more area than a western pocket and stretches almost halfway across the trouser front, ending just an inch and a little from the zip fly.
    Is this correct?

    Also on western pockets: If the above is not true, than what is the ideal 'starting' position of the pockets? Directly under the belt loop and all the way to the side seams?

    Thanks,
    WJTW
