Pork chop pockets are pockets in clothing and are named for their pork chop-like shape. Rather than being a square shape like most other pockets, they are rectangular with a diagonal, rather than straight, opening. This opening allows them to be deep yet also easily accessible. They are usually front pockets on casual garments.

This type of pocket is distinct from other kinds. The square-shaped patch pocket is probably the most common pocket version and is often used for back pockets. Slash pockets can have a diagonal opening like pork chop pockets, but are not as rectangular or as roomy. Button-flap pockets are basically patch pockets with an added button-up flap feature. Pork chop pockets have no buttons and the part that is the rounded corner is the deepest part of the pocket.

Children's play clothes often have pork chop pockets. These pockets are easy for children to put their hands into and are big enough to hold all kinds of things that kids may put in their pockets. Plus, the interesting shape looks cute on everything from jeans to shorts.

Adult's jeans and shorts, both women's and men's styles, also often have pork chop pockets for a casual appeal. Women's dressier capri shorts such as those suitable for wearing to an office job do not usually have this style as these pockets are considered too casual-looking for career wear. Casual jeans and pants with such pockets are likely to have flared legs to balance out the look.

Cargo pants often feature pork chop pockets near the waistband as well as rectangular flapped pockets on the legs. Other casual clothing made for outdoor wear such as hooded jackets and Bermuda shorts may also feature this style of pockets. These types of clothing pieces, with their roomy storage possibilities, are both practical and comfortable for outdoor activities such as camping. The pockets can also be found on some casual skirts as well as knit pants or shorts with an elastic or drawstring waist.
