A pro darn job will be expensive and not many people will pull it off well. Taping would work, or making a feature of it with some sashiko?

Any recommendations? This is my IHM-15, about 3.5 years later. The right pocket is getting worn.

If it's a medium, just sell it to me...

Indigoproof fixed a jean jacket for me that had similar problems. You might want to reach out to Rain,if you’re in the states.

Bought a couple of liberty cuffs ages ago that I planned to put on my IHW-01 but never got round to it. I recently acquired a MFSC Drover Blouse in Denim and this jacket seemed like the perfect home for the liberty cuffs . . .

That’s so cool! Perfect garment for those cuffs, well paired @den1mhead . 👍🏼👍🏼

If I ever get to meet you at some IH event, I sure hope you’ll be wearing it so I get to personally see it.

I'd like to offer a shout out to Railcar Fine Goods.  I have a good problem: I have lost a ton of weight and despite age and gravity, I'm back (mostly).  That said, my IHs have been worn to daily perfection---softer, fades, good things---but are now far too big.  I've bought a few new pair because I can't live without 634s.  I also just received a pair downsized by Railcar.  No diaper butt, proper waist, I really couldn't be happier.  They did a great job.

I have this old shirt that I bought second hand from a member here about 7 or 8 years ago, so I don't even know which model it is, but it was looking pretty badly faded and needed some help. Yesterday I mixed up my natural indigo dye and breathed new life into the shirt. Good as new!

Nice one, @seawolf.  I think I have the same denim in a western and was thinking of selling it.  Now I'm going to look into doing the same.

Can't see that on amazon uk, but I did find http://www.wildcolours.co.uk/html/indigo.html.  It seems far too complicated, though.  I looked at their red dye and that was even more involved.

Yeah, it's a little more involved than a box of powdered Rit dye, but it was fun and definitely worth the effort.
