One of the reasons for no handwarmer pockets is (was)....
that officers were not supposed to stand around with their hands in their pockets! The same is also true for some uniform pants. For example, at the Naval Academy, the uniform pants worn for academic classes have only back pockets so that the midshipmen will not put their hands in the front pockets. These pants cut a very nice look, but, damn, I wish mine still fit!
