I am looking for a pants pattern that has flare legs and pork chop pockets, any suggestions?

In Mrs. Charisma's photo I see patch pockets and expandable pockets. Is either one of those pork chops pockets? (Never heard of that). Why are they changing the names of things which worked for decades and decades?

I think Mrs.Charisma has it right. That large, deep, rectangular patch pocket on the outside of the garment with the slash opening appears to be a pork chop pocket.

Never heard of "pork chop" pockets either. Interesting Google results -- lots of recipes for stuffed pork chops. According to WiseGeek:

"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."

I started reading this and thought, "Oh, a slash pocket." But no, it appears to be different - perhaps the slash pocket has a pocket bag inside the garment and the pork chop pocket is a big patch pocket on the outside?

Haha! Nice history there :)

The main pants pocket is the pork chop pocket. The other is a cargo pocket? Patch pocket??

Cargo pocket. That's the term I wanted; however, they are expandable. Guess they could qualify as a patch pocket which is one not a part of the pants nor in a seam nor have a slash and a bag.

So, a pork chop pocket is a patch pocket.

I think I'd concentrate on(Jalie) finding the pants pattern (Jalie) that has the silhouette (Jalie) and fit (Jalie) that you want. The pockets can easily be copied from another garment and added. I topstitch a similarly shaped pocket on my scrub pants.

Hey! I have an idea! Have you considered looking at Jalie patterns? Some of my best-fitting and therefore most satisfactory pants projects have started with one of those. Jalie pants

I think of a patch pocket as being square of rectangular with the opening at the top. The pork chop pocket is shaped like a pork chop.
