Patching versus weaving

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Men, I could use some help here.  I have a snag on the pants (front thigh, right below the jacket) of a higher end suit.  The suit is made of a very thin wool and has a small blue check pattern.  The rip is about 3/4 of an inch; I don't think it has gone entirely through the material.  I have extra material from when I hemmed the cuffs. 

 

So, do I patch or reweave?  I saw a previous thread on the topic but am still having trouble understanding the cost/benefit of each.  I understand the reweave is considerably more expensive and the better overall outcome.  Would I expect the result to be close to unnoticeable? Does the patch look tacky or can it be passable if done right?  Any info on this would be appreciated.  Also, if someone could recommend a reweaver in NYC with a ballpark price that would be appreciated. 

 

Thank you for helping this greenhorn get his sea legs,

Bill
