My husband has a leather jacket that has a gradually worsening tear parallel to a seam in the side. We took it to a shoe repair shop, but the repair was shoddy and didn't last. Any pointers?? Do I need special thread? Should I apply a patch or just sew up the tear??<br><br>
Thanks for any thoughts!

A hobby leatherworker may be able to sew it up for you. If you have a Tandy store nearby, the would be able to put you in touch with someone who could fix it. You might also check with local high end or independent fabric stores. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
