How do I mend my jacket?
 
I just got a little tear in my brand new jacket and I'm really pissed off about it. My jacket caught on one of those silver metal door release handles that sits about chest height on the door. My arm caught on it on the way out and tore a 1/4" hole in the sleeve. The tear is straight and there are no frays. So, how do I fix it? I ran a quick search on google and found this method. Has anyone done this before?

If you ask me, that fix will be short lived when it comes to dealing with moisture and physical activity. Time to whip out some needle and thread, or get your mom/aunt/girlfriend to do it. It won't be perfect but it will keep water and wind out. :D

I'm going to try it out. The tear isn't very big and it's a L tear, or 3 corner tear so it's very difficult to mend. I used the liquid stitch tonight and I'm boarding tomorrow. I'll see how it works out. If it doesn't work well, I'll liquid stitch it again then throw on the hem tape, iron it on, then stitch it on. That should probably hold together. This really pisses me off too because I just got the jacket not two weeks ago.

My friend fell in front of me, and I hit into him, making a nice sized gash in the back of his jacket with my edge. He used a nylon-like patch and ironed it on. Worked fine. It was funny that day though. He had down feathers flying out of him.

That does suck to blow out new gear like that so fast :mad:

I'd stitch it then cover the stitch with some shoe goe. May not look so pretty, but it will keep the stitches secure, likely beyond the integrity of the rest of the jacket and it will be waterproof.
