They can be patched.
I hope so.

That's awfully tonal @An Acute Style . I like it, but I find myself longing for a splash of navy/green/burgundy in the form of a knit tie or v neck sweater. The fruit compote on top of the oatmeal, if you will.
I agree it is very tonal. Not necessarily in a good way here. It matches my mood the last few days. The right colored tie would have helped a lot.

Paying homage to my family's affinity for the Pittsburgh Steelers today (i'm the lone Patriots fan in the house, my wife grew up in Pittsburgh). Black 3 button/collar cashmere sweater, yellow/gold 3 button golf shirt from Oakmont Country Club, Patagonia lightweight hemp/cotton shorts, York River Traders webbing/ribbon belt.

Tweed and flannels. First of the season for me.

Love that jacket. Is it as heavy as it looks? I'd like something like that for casual (read: non-court) days, but it's difficult to justify when my climate would probably allow for half a dozen wearings per year if it is as heavy as I think it is. I really like the triple patch pockets and the cloth itself, though.

I know from personal experience the disappointing results of patching pants such as these. You'll wind up with a 3" x 3" square of fabric (since the seamstress/tailor will have to go way beyond the hole to get a solid seam) and it'll look terrible—like you plastered a 3" square on your thighs. Just say sayonara to these trousers and go buy another pair. If you doubt me, have the repair place show you the results on someone else's pants, and you'll see what I mean before wasting your money.

If they are cuffed, have the cuff removed and see if they can use the cloth to re-weave (French-American $$$) or possibly patch them they way they do with denim, where there are zig-zag stitches of the same color and a matching patch on the inside. The advantage you will (potentially) have is to use the cloth from the cuff to match to the pants.

I have had this done by my local tailor/seamstress with decent results, especially if it is on the inner thigh, you will barley if at all notice it when they are worn.

A good invisible mender should be able to patch them up. Only problem is it's very difficult to find one.

The weather has remained dry and relatively cool here in NYC. Today's ensemble was concocted with my two usual elements - whim and caprice. Today's shirt has been sitting in my shirt closet, unworn, for a very long time, and today's suit was next in rotation. I opted for a very monochromatic look for today, thinking that the rather vivid striping of today's shirt would be the statement maker for today's look, as much as I generally find little favor with monochrome outfits in general - the exception proves the rule.

Suit - Ede & Ravenscroft, London
Shirt - Polo Ralph Lauren
Tie - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - Benson & Clegg, London
Braces - Lewin
Pocket square - vintage no name brand
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand
Face mask - New & Lingwood
