Ever tried on a brand new suit and noticed that all the pockets on the suit are sewn in completely shut? Tailors make sure the pockets of a suit are sewn in for many reasons. The first reason the pockets are tightly closed is to make sure that the suit maintains its correct shape when it's in the final stages of being completed during the pressing process. This is the same reasons vents are typically sewn shut. Secondly, the suit looks much better on display when the pockets are tightly sewn together. Finally, the pockets are sewn together to keep the suit clean and free from customers' grimy hands. Once you do cop a suit, you should get a sharp pair of scissors and carefully snip your pockets open so you can put them to use.
