need some help all. i just realized my absolute favorite pants of all time, my niche painted jeans, have a blowout in them. suggestions on where to get them repaired?

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.
I've also had good experiences with Railcar and would readily recommend them. I sent them two vastly different pair, both of which had crotch blowouts (I blame being a fatty at the time and repeatedly climbing in and out of a Jeep) and they came back looking great. Both were color matched fantastically.

I recently sent some denim to Williamsburg Garment Co. for hemming and a very minor darning repair in one spot and the results were fantastic as well. I decided to use them this time around because they were a bit less expensive and they had really fast turnaround. I'd recommend them as well.

I've also used Self Edge several times and have been really happy with the results. It's been a while since I've been in, but I'm pretty sure it's something like a standard charge for up to 3 different areas on the jeans so in addition to the blow-out, you can have any other minor issues patched up too and if there's nothing else that calls for immediate attention, you could have them do something like reinforce the pocket bags preemptively.

Railcar is local for me, and they've done some work for me while I wait - always do a great job.

Spring has sprung. I can comfortably wear my jeans again after a rough first 6 months of the pandemic. CDC updated its mask guidance (but less clear for those of us with young kids?). Perhaps most importantly, the Castaner loafers are on sale! Pic is from their maiden voyage. Super comfy; no surprise everyone loves them.

Greg & co - the inglese grenadine polo is lovely. I missized (from a while back) and will probably end up gifting mine to a dear friend, but hope we'll see restock in seasons to come.

This Sage de Cret jacket caught my eye. Do you have any pics of it worn?

For the KS linen silk shorts would I be the same size as the pants that were released earlier?
