Oh I was thinking he didn't speak English and made his message in his native language then used a machine translation. *shrugs*  :)

My pair of 666-XHS jeans are starting to develop a hole in the crotch.  Should I worry about it or just wear them until it gets worse?

Here are two pictures of what I am seeing:

In November I posted these pictures and asked for advice on what to do.  The advice was received and after speaking with @Chesson I sent my jeans in to be fixed.

They just arrived and I am very happy and wanted to share the results with you.  Special shout out to Alex Chesson and his magic.  Great Job!!

I made some good progress sewing the patch back on with my sewing awl. I am going to have to switch to the yellow kevlar thread so it won't break. I got halfway across the top and the thread broke. There is definitely a learning curve with this tool, and lots of blood. 😂

Thanks guys! 😄

@henry_david if you'll agree to send me a proof of life photo of your jeans, mail them to me with signature confirmation, and put $25 in the pocket so I can mail them back to you with insurance and a signature confirmation... I will agree to sew your patch on for you. Just send me a PM.

Make sure to get the newest one that has the thread tensioning device on the side. Mine is older than me, and I got it second hand in the 80s when I was in Scouts.

I just ordered 2 pieces of black 1.3 mm Horween CXL so I can make a "gun pocket" to sew into the lining of my Fine Creek jacket... I have a 10 prong chisel I purchased to perforate new IH leather patches and am gonna use that to make sort of a 1 inch deep 3-dimensional inside pocket.

"20210314_115145.jpg"

I have a curved sewing needle so I can sew the pocket onto the liner without having to remove it.  :)

I want to make sort of a box shaped pocket like the ones on those German moleskin pants. But not as deep. Maybe like 5 inches deep?

"Moleskin1_560x.jpg"

I'll let everybody know how I get on when the stuff arrives.
