who makes nice jerseys without pockets?

(I know about the tri tops, but I prefer the conventional jersey look)

How flattering.
You care about the aero of your pockets? What are you doing where that matters?

at the risk of frustrating everyone's attempts to start an dust-kicking match...

you might try a skinsuit... but it seems you do want pockets, just no ones that stick up?
I have a couple of hincapie jerseys where the pockets are off to the side at an angle, they stay down pretty well....

hope some of this was helpful, but I honestly don't understand what end you are trying to achieve.

Easy solution. When racing, don't put anything in your jersey's pocket.. They'll still be there for non race events, when you just might appreciate the extra storage area.

Glue them shut. But the scissors idea does result in a weight reduction.

He's riding a recumbent. The pockets ruin the symmetry on the folds of back fat.

On Saturday's ride I noticed a new guy. Full on matching kit all the way down to the socks. Even matched the bike. But he had two water bottles on the bike and his jersey pockets were bulging with clothes and even a bottle of Coke. Definitely not aero. Couldn't figure out if he was a Poseur or a Fred.

Turns out, he gets paid to ride his bike.

Defile a shirt with the Piels beer logo on it.. Never. I'd buy a cheap generic jersey first.
