Pocket review: New York & Company dress pants

Another thrift store pair of pants here.  The label says New York & Company Stretch, with NYC-1600 on the back of the label.  They're size 6.  A quick look through the company's website did not turn up any obvious matches to my black pinstriped specimen, but they do show several models with hands in pocket.  So, can't tell you the exact name of these pants, but this company's pants seem worth a check for decent dressy pockets!   These had decent pockets even before my modifications (which of course took them to amazing).

Pocket dimensions are estimated here as I ended up making pocket extenders for these pants (the big pale parts of the pockets), but the pockets rated decent even before.  I wore them to work and never had the usual cargo (keys, wallet, phone) fall out.  The front pockets were 4 1/2", maybe 5" (since I cut off the bottoms to put on the pocket extenders) deep.  They have a top entry slash that is 5 1/2" across.  The pockets are 6" wide and extend to the side seam.  They do not extend to the zipper.  Both sides also have a tiny pocket in the front above the main front pocket.  These are 2" deep and 2 3/4" wide.

Guesstimating the pockets were about 4 1/2 or 5" before I made them AMAZING.
The two back pockets are 3 1/2" deep, 5 1/2" wide, and each have a button and buttonhole to secure anything you might place therein.
I never have used the back pockets but they seem decent.
