Monki’s accessories concept designer, Malou, lent us her hands, brains (oh and patience, it does take a little while) to show us how to create this pocket-less jeans customisation.
You will need:
Jeans: an original 100% organic cotton denim pair like Kimomo or Taiki work best.
P.S. the lighter the wash, the better the results!
Step 1: Un-pick them
Carefully un-pick the stitching of your pockets using small sharp scissors or an un-picker.
Pro Tip: Be patient! You don’t want to accidentally cut your jeans when trying to cut through the bar tacks.
Ta-dah! Your new customised jeans are pocket-less and ready to be teamed with a white tee for a supes classic and classy look.
Pro Tip: Got mad sewing skills? Take things next step and re-sew the pockets back on but in a slightly different place, so you can see the dark denim patch where the pockets originally were. To do so you’ll need a sewing machine and needles that can sew through denim.
