    Hi, I've read a lot here and you guys have helped me a ton without even knowing it! I have a question about altering the rise on jeans. I really really like this pair of D&G jeans:

    I know D&G isn't hugely popular here but I like the brand and I think it fits me well. Only thing with these jeans is the rise is really high. 12.25 inches.... I know the waistband can be moved down but it might be hard with the zipper pockets. Is there another way to alter the rise on these jeans? Am I better off letting these go? Also, why does the rise look okay on the back but high on the front? In the side pics it looks okay too. If the back rise is really low and the front rise really high, does that kind of even itself out if that makes sense?

    Also, in your opinion, would you pick the ones above or these:

    Thanks a lot!

    tl;dr you can't really alter the rise of jeans.
