Pocket review: Ann Taylor Loft Veranda Trousers (linen pants)

Purchased in-store (and on sale, yay!) at Ann Taylor Loft in 2016, these linen pants are light and comfy.  I wore them walking around in hot, humid weather, and found them quite nice.  My specimen is a size 8.  This model appears to be sold out but maybe they will come back in the summer (right now Loft's website seems to have more wintry corduroy and tweed).  There were one or two listed on ebay as well.

Front pockets are side-seam pockets with only a slight diagonal tilt, which tend to gape open on curving hips (I learned that here).   Nonetheless, I didn't lose keys, wallet, or phone.

The ruler shows where one of the two front vertical-opening pockets is.
The front pockets, one on each side, measure about 8 1/2" deep at the front (the pocket does not meet the zipper). On the side seam, it is 3 1/2" from the bottom of the pocket to the opening.  The opening is nearly vertical and is 6 1/2".  The pocket is a little over 6 1/2" wide from the side seam at the bottom, and about 5" wide from the opening at the top.  The wearer's right (left on the photo) has a small welt pocket that comes originally sewn shut.  The welt pocket is surprisingly large for this type of small front "coin pocket", at 3" deep and 3" wide, with the opening 2 3/8" wide.

The pants turned inside out so you can see the shape of the pockets.  The pocket left of the ruler is one of the back pockets, the ruler is near the side seam, and the pocket on the right is one of the front pockets.

The back pockets, one on each side, have a flap and button to hold them closed.  The back pockets are 7" deep and 5 3/4" wide.  The opening is a little narrower at 5" wide.

These pockets are quite decent!  I want to find more pants like these.
