narrowing pants

i picked up a pair of Rogan Patriot pants last year, and as many Rogan owners already know, their pants are fairly "full" in the leg and seat.

i was meaning to alter them last year but didn't get around to it...

generally speaking, is it difficult to narrow the leg and seat areas in a pair of loose fitting pants? will i be able to keep the overall shape of the pant? please keep in mind that this will not be a taper job, but instead an adjustment throughout the pant.

Thanks in advance...

Baggy seat probably means taking in the crotch. No big. Taper the thigh and you should be fine. Amount of work depends on where you need to begin on the outseam. Opening the pocket or the waistband will add some time and cost to the job. You said not a taper job so I assume you mean only the upper parts need reducing.
