I was attracted to this pair of pants (Pattern 122 November 2006) because they were designed with big pockets in mind. That said, however, I did change the shape of the pocket a bit and also extended the top of the pockets to function as a belt loop on the waist band, mimicing a pair of pants I owned. I used a heavy cotton blend fabric with a metallic snap. I think the pattern would also look great in corduroy.
