* Classical Greece had no pockets in everyday wear for most men (the garment everyone thinks of in this context really was little more than a bed-sheet wrapped around the body and pinned), and belt pouches were not common either due to a lack of belts, yet people still had to carry money. The solution was to make coins very small and carry them in your ''mouth''.

* Initially played straight then averted in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. Lieutenant commander “Sensei” Shodan bemoans the fact that the grunts have been issued with uniforms with pockets as they will now want to put things in them.

* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'': Subverted. Florence, an UpliftedAnimal who is programmed with a variety of human safeguards, checks for clothing first when trying to determine if someone is human or not. After all, with genetic engineering, cybernetic modification, and just plain evolution, it's nearly impossible to be sure what humans will eventually turn into--but they'll probably still want pockets.

Why? Surely fashion hasn't changed so much that we've outmoded all methods of carrying things aside from our hands (or VictoriasSecretCompartment[=/=]TrouserSpace), right? Wouldn't the engineers at least want a nice, functional UtilityBelt? Why not a European carry-all, especially in parody settings?

-->''Andrew Cartmel''': For years in movies and TV if it was the future, everyone was either wearing Roman togas or white zipsuits. ''Film/BladeRunner'' was a real turning point for that, because it recognised that fashion was cyclic and people in the future would wear fashions from the past, as people already do now.
