Default short pockets

My personal all-around pen for every day use has long been the Euro. I have made boat loads of these to sell and gift. But, in recent years I have found that many of my shirts have pockets that are too shallow (short) to accommodate the Euro. Makes me angry. If it can't be used it probably will not sell well or get used if gifted. So, for now, I have settled on the Patriot as my 'standard' pen. Good style, no problem there. Easy to turn and they use less wood. I don't think we are going to force shirt manufacturers to revise their patterns so we need to adjust. I'll be looking for other styles also to fit this spot in my 'catalog'.
