Personal Visit Required

All reweaves must be brought in personally. This way we can examine the garment, discuss your options and help you assess the likelihood of a positive outcome. Armed with that information, you’re now positioned to make an informed decision on the result you can reasonably expect and on the economic viability of the project. Our insistence on examining the garment in your presence and informing you of the likely outcome runs contrary to the manner in which most reweaving services operate. At Capital Custom Clothiers, we refuse to offer a reweaving service that will not produce a positive outcome and/or that is not economically justifiable.

The last step is to design your bespoke garment, based on the material you’ve selected, and what we’ve learned about your body during the measuring process. We will always provide our best professional advice based on how you plan to wear your custom garment. We have been in the custom clothing business for over 25 years and we pride ourselves on time tested measuring techniques that allow us to get the right fit the first time. Our garments are hand cut and hand stitched by our team of master tailors whose skill and expertise is second to none. We incorporate the treasured luxury aspects of traditional quality tailoring without breaking the bank by designing flawless garments that bring style, substance and comfort. There is nothing quite like the experience of wearing a suit created especially for you. One that has been carefully crafted for hours where each detail is perfected so as to achieve an impeccable masterpiece based on the specification of each client! We offer custom tailored suits, tuxedos, shirts and outerwear always taking the client’s personality and lifestyle into consideration.

Pricing

The cost of the reweave and the time required to complete the reweave will vary according to the size of the damage, location of the damage, type of fabric, type of weave, gauge (“tightness” or “openness”) of the weave and density (“thickness” or “thinness”) of the weave. Cost is based on the time spent on the repair and on the complexity of the repair. For example, the cost to reknit a relatively small hole on a knit sweater starts at $30; the cost to reweave a relatively small tear in a wool trouser starts at $80.

understand that the cost of the reweave may bear no relationship to the original cost of the garment or household textile. For example, the cost to reweave a hole in a $500 Loro Piana cashmere sweater will be the same as the cost to reweave an identical hole in an similar-styled $50 Unknown Brand cashmere sweater. After inspection of the garment by our in-house or outside reweaver, we will contact you with an estimate to do the repair. No work will commence until we receive your approval to proceed. Upon completion of the work, no requests for a service fee refund or reduction will be entertained or made based on a client’s expressed “dissatisfaction” with the results or timing of the reweave.

Deposit

A deposit is required on all reweaving commissions. The amount of the deposit typically ranges from 40% to 80% of the final cost of the work. The dollar amount of the deposit will be determined by the fabricare specialist assisting you. No work will commence until the deposit is paid. If the deposit and/or the final balance on the work is paid by credit card, you must agree, as a minimum condition of service, not to dispute or challenge the charge(s) with your credit card issuer.

Turnaround

Given that reweaving is a slow, labor-intensive craft, we typically estimate 3-8 weeks. Please note the volume of work fluctuates according to the season. Fall and winter is busy; spring and summer is slower, we cannot and will not be held responsible for any delay in the completion of any work.

Guarantees

The notion that all reweaves will be completely invisible is, for the most part, a myth. Capital Custom Clothiers offers no gurantee that the finished repair will be completely invisible. All work is guaranteed not to come loose for the life of the garment (provided the loose threads on the reverse side of the reweave are not trimmed).

Clean First

If you are considering reweaving a hole (or holes) in a fine wool garment – a hole (or holes) that you suspect might have been caused by moths or other insects – we strongly recommend that you dry clean the garment prior to attempting a reweave. We only work on garments that have been dry cleaned or hand washed subsequent to the last wearing. The full extent of the damage may not be fully visible to the naked eye until after the garment has been cleaned. When the garment is tumbled in a dry cleaning machine during the cleaning and drying process, more holes may open up.
