Dear all,

What do you call a pocket around your chest, on the reverse side of your jacket? An 'inside' or 'inner' pocket of your jacket?

    Thank you very much, Smauler and Rover!
    Then if you talked about a double layered pocket, how about calling 'the <inside/ inner> pocket of the inside pocket'? Which choice would be better?

    I call the pocket next the your chest on the inside of a jacket an inside pocket too.

    If a pocket divides into two, I would call the section closer to the jacket the inner pocket and the one further away the outer pocket​.

    I think I agree, but I'm not sure.

    From what I understand, I would call it the inner pocket of the inside pocket, if the pocket in the inside of the jacket is subdivided.

    For me, this section of the inside pocket would be closest to the body of the person.
