    Sport coat buttonhole fraying

    I have a sport coat where the middle button hole is starting to fray. It’s an older jacket with sentimental value and I’d like to make sure I don’t damage it permanently. Is this something that needs to/can be repaired by an average tailor? I’ve attached a photo, and apologize if this is in the...

    Repairing deep leather creases?

    Hey all! Long-time reader; first-time poster. I recently received a pair of hand-me-down Cole Haan chukkas and am having a hell of a time fixing them up to my liking. Below are two pictures of the creasing, followed by one of the other shoe on that same side. All the other sides look like that...

    Sheepskin Jacket repair advice?

    I recently bought a second hand sheepskin jacket which for the most part is in great condition. I've had to do some small repairs and tweeks myself but there's one issue that I don't know how to resolve on my own. The outside part of the collar has discoloured and taken on a more tough texture...

    Professional repair with elbow patches

    Has anyone had a sweater *professionally* repaired with elbow patches? I have a sweater with a worn out elbow. I tried to apply elbow patches to another sweater before and did a terrible job. They were uneven and looked like crap. I'm trying to see if it's possible to have them professionally...

    discoloration on leather shoe

    Bought these Cole Haans from a goodwill. Took them home, cleaned with warm water and dish soap, conditioned with Saphir Renovateur, polished with cream polish. Once they were all cleaned up, I noticed the toe has some lighter shade discoloring. You can see it on left side of the shoe's toe in...

    Leather Jacket Beyond Repair?

    Found this old Belstaff jacket -- wondering whether or not it would be salvageable if I brought it to a leather repair place? They'd likely need to patch it up a good bit as most of the tears don't seem clean and a lot of the rips seem to be fraying. Looks a lot like one of my waxed cotton...

    Really upset, just ripped my pants in half!

    So I just squatted down and ripped my suit pants (Zegna) in the butt area about 3 inches. I've worn this suit only a couple times (my first suit I've owned was supposed to be for interviews). This Is upsetting because the tailor let out the butt area allready as much as possible and this means...
