So, today was not a good day for me. I did this: I went to the only tailor I could find that did "invisible mending" and he showed me his work. He said at the end of the day, if it can be done, I will end up with "L" shaped railway track stitching along the edges of the tear. He does not do the work but sends it out and thought it would cost around $150 to $200 but would need to confirm with the person that does the work. Is proper re-weaving noticeable. What he said made sense, as he said he needs something to anchor what is rewoven to. Are there any options to send this jacket away for the best work? This is my nicest suit by far, and not rolling in the cash. I have any number of crappy suits this would not bother me too much to happen to, but nope, my only Canali.
