I recently had these repaired at Railcar. Not the cheapest I'm sure but the work is pretty solid.




Okay

That looks good. I had similar done at Denim Revival in LA & it wasn't cheap.

Ive been wearing these 003's for the last few months and they're getting ready for a wash so ive been repairing them beforehand before the stitching disintegrates further.
Im terrible at sewing but im even worse at paying for repair.
Stitched the coin pocket back on.


The huge material fold around the back pockets had flipped the opposite way by now so i had to tack them before stitching the pockets back on then unpicked the tack.
As you can see with the darker indigo, the pockets are not quite in the right position..?


A much less of a contrived 'wonky' stitch this time around, and in homage to CSF a loop over the bartack.

...and a crotch patch

Not great i know, but ive done my best. Ive also reinforced the inseams with a sketchy overlock for the 2nd time.
I'll post some update shots when they've been washed.

I've always felt that repairs ought to have that 'home job' feel to them. Some slick, blended job doesn't feel, I don't know, honest?
My coat has nine buttons, but I always fascinate.
