It's like a brand new shirt! You totally should. The kit I used comes with a bandana too, but I tried some tie-dye pattern, and it didn't come out spectacularly  :D

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.

Any before and after photos?

Thanks! I'm very happy with how it came out. I went shopping in my closet!

Recommendations for repair shops in Scotland? Crotch has gone in my 555n's and about to go on my 555-03's.

Thanks Alex, sending to IH was originally my plan, then I thought that if there was a reliable place nearby and not too expensive, I might be quicker doing a drop off - pick up thing.

I used  this kit https://amzn.to/2MZAlqd and it was great. Really great instructions and just an overall pleasant experience.
That’s an IHSH-26 and it’s a great shirt. I’ve had my OD version for almost 10 years now and besides the fading it looks new. Great dye job, that’s a rare shirt that deserves some wear!

Cheers @sabergirl - The Denim Doctor in Manchester, £19.95. I had my doubts about whether he'd be able to do the repair as the damage was pretty comprehensive but he didn't seem phased. I'm happy with his work plus it's barely noticeable due to its location.

I am bored to tears so fixed that broken stitch so it won't pull through.

Has anyone ever tried to chainstitch a hem by hand? What did the results look like?
Got some Filson Double Tin bibs which come unhemmed, thought that might be interesting to try. With the material being waxed, I’m not sure if someone would be willing to do it commercially. Guess I’m thinking the wax could somehow gunk up someone’s machine... at least I’m not willing to take the risk with my wife’s sewing machine! :D Though that would be just a plain stitch hem.

Looks beyond repair in the 1st image he's done an amazing job! Will keep Denim Doctor down as a mental note
