Damn, this is the best photo I’ve seen of this jacket and makes me real sad to have missed out. Also, great phot of the fam!
Never tried this, but I think Dieworkwear recommended Denim Therapy for jeans repairs. I'll eventually send some of my stuff to them.
the denim here is pretty light weight. so i think a thinner darning would probably suit it better. but i'm more concerned with getting the color right.I’ve had hit or miss experiences with Denim Therapy. The first time was great but another time the color matching was really poor. It’s also a pretty thin darning, though that has its advantages because it’s less noticeable when you wear it. I also used Detroit Denim locally and they were bad too, but for the opposite reason: their darning was so damn thick and stiff it caused ANOTHER hole right next to the repair. My best experience was with Railcar Fine Goods, which cost more but I thought did the closest to a Goldilocks between the other too. Took a long time though, whereas I think Denim Therapy in NYC might be local/faster for you.
Looks like you're not the only one in your family who wants to wear that coat! Great photos.
I used Denim Therapy in the past about 5 times and each time I’ve been generally okay with the results. It is rather expensive though if you don’t live in NYC.the denim here is pretty light weight. so i think a thinner darning would probably suit it better. but i'm more concerned with getting the color right.
In that case, if it were me, I'd probably roll the dice on Denim Therapy. One thing to keep in mind is that where the blowout is located, the bottom of your crotch, is not necessarily a place that is visible when you're wearing them. Angles, shadows, etc during regular wear mean that a not-perfect color match won't be really be noticeable to anyone other than you. And again: my first time using them was perfect, and I only used them twice, so the worse experience may have been the aberration.the denim here is pretty light weight. so i think a thinner darning would probably suit it better. but i'm more concerned with getting the color right.
I’ve only used self edge a few times and have so far been happy with the results. The thing that has been nice is that they’ve matched the weights pretty well. So the 18oz denim I had repaired got thicker/heavier darning while the 15oz got something much more in line with the weight.
