If your favorite baggy linen pants fray in the crotch you're allowed to patch them, right?
But what if those SAME pants become a wee bit threadbare on the left side (where you carry a bag & it probably rubs against it?) And say there's a HOLE on the left hip side? And say your SKIN shows through that hole...
Can you patch them again? (From the inside. THe tailor does it. Same color... [obviously])
Or do you call it a day?
I love those pants.
ETA - And WHAT IF these pants are one of the lucky few that STILL fit due to your explosive weight gain? (Just getting dressed. NOTHING fits! Augh!)
