Go big or go home.


5 pound burritos. Trash can beer pong. Giant donut pool floats. Some things are just better jumbo-size, and t-shirt pockets are no different. They’re useful for carrying things like beer and puppies, they’re a conversation starter, and you can’t help but smile when you come across a crazy giant pocket on a t-shirt.


It all started at a bar

Like many good ideas, the giant pocket shirt started at a bar.  The diviest of all neighborhood dive bars, to be exact. We instantly thought of all the fun things you could do with a giant pocket on your chest, like stashing snacks for concerts, carrying small animals, grabbing a round for the boys, or even just holding your phone and your wallet when you need your hands for something else.

A few days later we made a few and took them for a test drive. We loved them, everybody else loved them, and BOOM! Pocket Pioneers was born. 



Are they useful for anything besides having fun?

Funny you should ask. Giant pocket shirts are actually helpful for socializing small animals, like puppies and kittens. For orphan puppies and kittens, it helps you act like a surrogate mother. Holding them in the pocket keeps them warm and close to your chest, which is important because they need to be able to feel your heartbeat. It also helps get them comfortable around people.



We want to make sure you're 100% satisfied with your giant pocket shirt, and the first step in that process is making sure you pick the right size. We put together the size chart and the shirt dimension chart to help you with that decision. The size chart is a rough guide to steer you towards the right size. Also notice here that our shirts are slim fit.

The shirt dimensions chart shows the exact dimensions of our shirts after they have been washed and dried. You can use this chart to compare how our shirts fit to other shirts you already have in your closet, to ensure your shirt fits exactly how you want it to fit.

Stimulating the Local Economy

We grew up in Tampa, so that means two things: 1) We’re beach bums. Most of our designs reflect that. And 2) we want to support our local economy. All of our shirts are printed and assembled here using local manufacturers.


Specific pocket designs aren’t guaranteed to hang around forever. Some designs are staples and will always be around while others are limited release, fun-run prints (you'll see a note at the bottom of the product page). So this should go without saying, but if you see something you like, get it before it sells out!!

Also, you may notice that some of our styles/sizes that are not limited release are sold out. You guys have been awesome and have been gobbling up our shirts, and we’re trying to get them to you as fast as we can. However, if we are sold out of something you like, sign up for our email list at the bottom of the page here and we’ll let you know when we restock, or send us an email at dudes@pocketpioneers.com
