Hello,

This is more of a comment rather than a question.

Purchased a beautiful E Zegna Milano suit, however, the stupid store pulled their tag off from the sleeve that left two small snags. Noticeable? Yes! But the price was too good to pass up. I was recommended by Paul from Wilshire Tailors to go to Alex's Reweaving. They showed me different ways to reweave the hole but stated it would be a difficult process due to the intricate pattern on the suit (sort of like a glen check). Anyway. A week later I go back and I couldn't even find the hole anymore. There wasnt any sign of a hole even when I gently put my finger on the area where the lady said the hole was at.

Highly recommend Alex's Reweaving!

Good to know, thanks. I've always sworn by Toshi's Invisible Reweaving in BH, but Paul really know his stuff, so I would take any recommendation from him seriously.

Where did they get the fabric from (from inside jacket, extra hem on pants, extra from sleeves)? I have a snagged YSL suit, where a thorn snagged as I walked by making a polite gash on the upper chest pocket. It is a good suit, shame to have to chuck it away.

I've had it done at Victor's in Santa Monica. Miraculous, but it took them a month.
