What does this mean?

I take it to mean that neither camera is likely to fit in the pocket of jeans made since the 80's.  That a person in 1980's jeans would be able to stuff one of these cameras in...?

I think it would be the opposite..  I think someone sporting the latest designs would be more likely to get one of these cameras in a pocket.

1980-style jeans had smaller pockets that were higher on the butt.  The pocket was not so deep and didn't extend so far down the rump.  It was possible to put a small wallet in the pocket, sit down, and have the wallet behind you rather than under your leg..  This was all when it was pretty cool to have a fanny.

These comments are for guy jeans.  The low cut, hip-hugger girl jeans are a little different.  Are you talking about those?  Still, you would have made it through the 90's before that change happened.

Do you think pockets on pants are smaller, now?
