To me, the rx100 is perfect for this role. It's about as big as I would call pocketable (if you can only fit it in a large jacket pocket, I don't think that counts), the IQ is good, and it's flexible- basically like having a standard kit zoom and a fast 28mm prime all in the same camera.

The new Olympus xz10 might be interesting as well, if price is a problem. It's a heck of a lot cheaper than the rx100, will fit in most pockets, and has a fast, versatile lens.

The lx7, xz2, etc. are just too big for me to consider pocketable. Shirt or pants pocket, or bust!
