I mistakenly put my jacket on a rounded hook. The weight of the jacket put it through. Now, I have a thumb size hole under my collar. I could leave it but I worry it could get larger over time and would like to stop that.
I don't think that I can sew it. I feel the thread would just tear through it as I was tightening the seam. The jacket feels thin there.
Is a leather patch the ideal way to go here just to be sure the fix is more long term?
What should I do to repair the thumb sized hole in my jacket?
