Final update on this...   Without a Trace did an incredible job (the picture speaks for itself) and should now consider me a customer for life.  
UPDATE on this - sent the jacket off to Without a Trace in Chicago (after combing through a number of posts recommending their work). They pulled the patch off and confirmed the initial damage was not so substantial as to require overweaving. Their french weaver is going to go to work on it and I'll post a final update with a pics when it returns.

Instead the groom and his men should endeavor to dress as individuals, albeit within the sartorial confines of solemn tradition and befitting the occasion. I agree with this, at least in principle. The only problem is I have only been able to find about four different patterns of...
Yeah I hear you. I rather like Kent's stuff. The issue is the cumulative impact on my wallet of not only the tie, but also the cuff links I'm going to be doling out to these guys.
On the Subject of Wedding Ties   I'm looking to piece together a collection of wedding ties, one for me, one for each of my groomsmen, and one each for the father of the bride and my father. In pursuit of this end I have a couple of questions I could use some direction in answering...   1) What options for wedding ties (if any) exist in the chasm between Kent Wang/Drake's and Specifically I'm looking for something in the $50/tie...
That's Bombay Company - They have a number of other suitable alternatives as well.
