Options After Poor Reweaving Effort?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I recently had some reweaving (technically over weaving I believe) done on a wool navy sports coat which had sustained a small (pencil eraser sized) tear to the upper part of the left arm sleeve. I've never had this type of work done, and in fairness I may have had unreasonably high expectations giving some results pictures I had seen here and on other forums, but I feel somewhat less than satisfied with the results (poor quality picture included). My questions are: 1) is it a bad job? and 2) can anything be done now (send to quality reweavers mentioned here before) or am I SOL?

 

Thanks in advance for any direction and/or adjustment of expectations.

I would contact French American Reweaving in NYC. I don't know what was the original damage like, but that job doesn't look very good as is.

I've had good experiences with French American. You may want to get their advice. Also wouldn't be surprised if Rave FabriCARE in Arizona provides a similar service. They do a lot of good cleaning and repair work. I haven't had reweaving done there, but they've been excellent for me at cleaning difficult stains.

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.
