Apparently Getting a Gi Patch Sewn is Not Self-Explanatory.
So you may remember I needed a new pair of gi pants for my own new FightWorks Podcast gi patch. My pants came in the mail on Monday, and that same day I raced over to the dry cleaners up the street from me and told them where to put the patch on the front right leg.
After anxiously waiting all week, on Thursday I cruised over there and am really excited to see how things finally turned out. Unfortunately, I think whoever they asked to sew the patch on was new on the job. Not only did they not tuck in the lightly frayed edges of the patch before sewing it on, but they used some really lousy stitch that ensures that the patch would come off in no time if I really tried to roll in it.
So, I am going to bring them an example of how it is supposed to look and hopefully they can get it right the second time. Wish me luck!
