@goosehd - as Iron Heart offer free repairs for life I'd get them addressed sooner rather than later.

I’d fix that straight away, it won’t get smaller. If you do it yourself then check the whole area for thinning, then apply a piece of denim that covers that area and not just the hole.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,

I think i'd be tempted to darn that/get it darned as soon as.  A stitch in time and all that......

I have just ordered three patches to embellish my IHM-13-KHA, Khaki Cotton Satin Thinsulate CWU-45P Type Flight Jacket. Patches A,B & C will be stitched to locations A,B & C on the jacket. A photo to follow after receipt of patches and completion of stitch work.

Love the Lockheed Martin patch - local Fort Worth plant employed a lot of my friends parents and our next door neighbor growing up :)

Get with the programme @den1mhead .  Learn how to sew.  I have spent most of the day sewing patches onto IHC-16's.  It can be done  :)

I did try to sew the badges onto my USAAF Type B-15 Jacket and it looked ok from the outside but looking at the jacket from the inside was a huge disappointment and I simply couldn't live with it. I know myself well enough to know that the badges have to be stitched on just so, as well as looking clean from the inside, and my skill level falls well short of the mark. Props to you for sewing patches onto IHC-16's 👍

Jules has a pair of Viberg engineers shown on LHS with chrome hardware that she would love to replace with brass hardware as shown on my IHTB-BOBRN on RHS. Does anyone know where hardware can be replaced on engineer boots? @Giles could IHUK replace hardware on Jules' boots?

Assuming you could acquire the brass buckles,I’m thinking you would just need a good local cobbler to do the switch for you. Anything involving shipping could get really expensive.

My most worn pants are starting to get a hole. I thought I would try a fix at home. I had some NoSo patches left over from a Patagonia nano puff tear. Supposedly these patches also work on cotton. I’ll see what happens, but thought this might slow down the damage. Patched from the inside and then set with a hair dryer on high heat.

@Penardont

I once took very high-quality cotton jeans, I really liked them, I still wear them and cotton pajamas in the form of a cat. I want to know what thread is suitable for sewing these cotton things if they suddenly break. Is a regular thread from the market suitable for these things for daily use? Jeans are usually tight, and pajamas are like this https://www.onesiezoo.com/ , and how to sew them better?. Things are just very high quality and I'm afraid that the child may break accidentally, I would not really like to throw it away and buy it again. So I really ask for advice on what I need to do with them. Thank you for your help, God bless you

I use this thread to make repairs. It is very strong and matches the jeans yellow color very closely.

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