This thread has told me nothing about how to fix my hole though :-/
Took my Japanese dry average joe's of two years to get done after a crotch blow. E-mailed nudie, they sent me two patches of the same denim, then took to a tailor to have them patched and reinforced. Wish he was a little bit more symmetrical though :-? I like it however, gives them more character than they had before.
^Never was a fan of the whole "orange crosshair around my anus" but this looks good =)
I ordered my pair of Nudies from Cultizm, so can I get a repair kit from Nudie?
^ I heard they don't give them out no more but give it a try. The guys at Nudie are nice and generous so I wouldn't be surprised ^^
^they don't have classic repair kits any more, but you'll always get some thread and one or two patches. Just mail them and add your adress.
The repair is very nicely done, but i agree on the crosshair... Theres enough orange as is.
Im learning to stitch n repair myself these days... looks rough but does the job!
Just as long as it serves its purpose its good =)
Thanks guys! They said they're gonna send me a repair kit!
So yeah, I got my repair kit which consists of a patch of denim. Not too bad considering it's free. =/
Sweet =) Post some pix when you're done
I got my moms 30-yr old sewing machine and just went off on my Jims...
I never used a patch tho, i just sew over the small holes a few times.
But since Ive only got small holes n never wait too long I guess I dont need them...
Does anybody else do this?
I can't believe they told you they would send you a kit, mine just turned up one day after months of waiting- I'd already taken them to the tailors, went mountain climbing and slipped- hole so big I could put my head through it. Tailors did a perfect job though, dyed the loose threads back to indigo and it's basically an invisible mend.
Didn't get any thread in my repair kit though
No one has actually said how to patch them up.
Newest member of the 'crotch-rip' club here, will attempt to fix them myself (it's not too bad yet) if not then repair SOS it is.
Question: Does anybody know what the nudies in the middle have had done to them? some sort of patching with dark material? I think they look incredible...
How long did it take to receive the repair kit?
I'm in need of one as my slim jims have 3 huge holes and my blue ones have 1 huge hole. I still wore them until winter ended an now I can't wear long johns, so its as if I'm wearing crotch-less jeans
Repair on my edwin
