  Hi Spoo.   I get that, but I'm not exactly in a typical situation - I'm working on ships for 4wks at a time.  Time on the internet is not something I am short of.    Despite this, although the clothing I am working on was acquired cheaply, I am using the cheap clothing to develop skill sets.  So that someday, when I am buying $800+ shirts, I will know from experience how to take care of them/address uncommon problems.     When later in life it is not a thrifted shirt,...

  And get a time machine.  It's an option.   Hmm.  I really thought more people here would have had some useful experience with repairing a puncture in a shirt.   ccm 
  Good idea, but I'm working offshore at the moment.  So I'm a thousand miles away from the shirts.   I'll post some pics when I get home on Thursday.   ccm
