    Hey, at a thrift store I go to there is a Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece plaid suit but the coat has a 2" by 0.5" chunk missing at the bottom of the back. There is currently a patch there but it is poorly done with some threads hanging. Can my tailor do something like re-patch it better or is it not worth it at all? Re-weave? How much would that cost?

    They are asking $20 but I am sure that if I brought the chunk up that they would lower it.

    Let it go. Something better is sure to come.
