What's that pocket for?

Hopefully I've placed this question in the right topic...

In English, fancy riding breeches always have a little "pocket" in the front, from the inside. I've always wondered what it's use/significance is. What's the purpose for that itty-bitty pocket? Anyone know?

I always keep a couple of ús in there for emergencies (or to buy lunch!). Since I got my new mobile phone which is fairly small it's where that lives - I never go on a hack without it.

I keep my mobile in there. Depending on which jods I have on. Pocket seems to vary in size.

I think it dates back hundreds of years, when noble gentleman use to keep some money in there.

I think its SUPPOSED to be for emergency stuff. I don't know about 'fancy' breeches, but every bog-standard pair of johds I've owned has had one.

I used to stick the key to my car in there when I'd go on a trail ride (I'd lock everything else valuable in my car). It's also a good spot for some cashola.
