I think the operative word here is "decent." If you go the relatively less-expensive patch route, anytime you sit with your legs even slightly parted, everyone will see the patches, which to me is a terrible look. And if you go what you admit is the expensive $$$ french weave option, you might as well buy a new pair of pants for what the reweave will cost you. I was in even worse shape, since my patch was on a suit, so I had to retire both the jacket and pants, but I did it because the patch made it look like I couldn't afford clothes without patches.If they are cuffed, have the cuff removed and see if they can use the cloth to re-weave (French-American $$$) 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.
I do like the cut of the suit. Fits you perfectly
