    I picked up a pair of Lee 101B repros from the Edwin store in Harajuku but was wondering if tailors were able to move the backpocket to the middle because they're a bit wide/high for my taste and about how much would/should it cost? Here's a picture (sorry for the poor quality, I took it with my cell phone)

    may I ask how much they cost?

    I am after a pair myself, but with a 36 leg... If they exist.

    Thanks

    (p.s. I dont think what you are asking will be possible, in a way that will leave your jeans looking good)

    They were 18,900 yen (which is around $165-170 US)

    I've only worn them maybe two or three times so far so I don't think changing the back pocket's position will look too weird

    I suppose it would be possible. If I were you though, I would just enjoy the difference, it's what sets the Lee repros aside from the other brands.

    Wish I could take a look round that Edwin Harajuku store...

    Is it more uncomfortable to sit with a wallet in the back pocket?

    Yeah, it feels a little odd because the wallet is against my hip, not my butt. Mainly I wanna change it cause I've been told it makes my ass look big [​IMG] and it feels a little uncomfortable but the denim quality and cut feels and looks great

    So I took some new pictures with my brother's huge (compared to me; his are sz36 and mine are 29) Evisu's as a comparison. I'd like my pockets to be in the relatively same location as those of the Evisu's [​IMG]

    Triple post [​IMG]

    Anyway I took the jeans to a tailor that's across the street and they actually did a pretty decent job on them. Here's a picture comparing with a pair of my Nudies

    On another note, this camera phone really sucks...[​IMG]
