Hi all,

Nice to write something.

I just brought a suit on ebay and I'am hoping to fix a moth hole in it. its by the side of the suit but can be noticed. My tailor says its better to leave it but i think i can do something to make it invisible.

Has anyone made a do it yourself solution that worked? I don't think there is any reweavers in Stockholm.


Best

Erik

There's no do it yourself way to make it invincible (or even invisible).
Reweaving is the only solution. Hard to believe there are no reweavers
in a city the size of Stockholm. Keep looking. Sometimes women's dressmaking
or tailoring establishments know more about reweaving. Good luck.

You should be able to find a reweaver in Stockholm but it is the penalty of trying to buy second hand for whatever reason. Caveat emptor.

I had a tailor make a moth hole or two less visible in a tweed jacket, in fact, unless you knew it was there you never would have noticed it but the fabric pattern made it easy to hide, unlike your suit.

Patching, well done, might be another option.
