Me and a friend are thinking of switching backpockets with each other. He has a pair of very light coloured jeans and mine are dark from beginning but i´ve wore them very much so they arer quite light too. So what do you think of switsching one of the backpockets with each other?

If you switch nudie backpockets, I think that sure would be cool!

I think it might look cheesy...but I'll be open minded.

I did it all about 4 year ago: with a Levi's 501 and a Lee jeans, switch the backpocket of both jeans, so that you see on each jeans a Lee pocket and a Levi's pocket. At the moment these jeans are very very worn and I put a lot of patches on both jeans, because I can not them to throw away. I get attached to these old personalised jeans.

Interesting idea, buddy!
I removed one backpocket of a levi's jeans long time ago but that didn't look that nice. :|

Sorry for you guys, but I don't have pics of my jeans (no digicam). You can see me and my jeans in person, walking on the streets of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
Look out!!!

Another cool jeans that i have seen on my school is a pair where the owner have removed one backpocket and put it on the front just under the front pocket.. that looked cool!

That's also what I did some years ago: put the back pockets of my Levi's 501xx on the front legs of my jeans. Saw this idea in a magazine (a photo of a very well worn and distressed Levi's with a lot of repairs on it and whit both back pockets sewn on the knees). Realised this idea immediately on my jeans with my sewing machine.

I did it with my loose frank my back pocket was gone, so I put a leather backpocket on there, I also did it with my coinpocket because it had a big ugly hole in it
