Hey folks,

Recently, I got into an automobile accident as a pedestrian, wearing my favorite balmacaan, and now have to deal with a not-unsubstantial tear in the lining and fabric near the left pocked, as shown in tue images attached.

I was wondering about possible solutions to this issue I face, as I'm at a loss regarding the most 'clean' way that one could go about this.

Thanks for any input!

There's places that specialize in reweaving, I would talk to some tailors in your area for some recommendations.
With that pattern and texture, I think your coat would be a great candidate for repair work.
