From time to time, even our more cherished and cared for garments show signs of wear and tear. Before you think about recycling the item why not consider having it repaired? Even holes can be repaired so you will barely notice they were there!
I have recently been approached by two lovely gentlemen who had minor holes in their formal suit jackets. Using a special technique, I was able to reduce the appearance of the holes quite significantly on both occasions.
The image below shows the hole before, during the repair and after the repair has been carries out.
Having the jackets repaired meant that they did not have to pay out for a new suit, so it proved much more cost effective!
