HELP!: Loose Thread, on my City's Shoulder Strap Leather Patch..

  1. I just noticed that the stitching on one the leather patches that hold my City's shoulder strap is coming undone:sad:

    I'm assuming that it's fairly simple repair to reinforce the thread?
    If it is simple, straight forward repair, maybe I can take it to one of the local leather repair places?

    I live in Sydney, so unless it's necessarily, I'd rather avoid sending it to Artbag or LMB.

    Has anyone else had this problem before? I really want to get the thread reinforced, so I can wear my City using the shoulder strap without worrying about the patch coming off....

    Any stories, advice, suggestions will be greatly appreciated:yes:
  2. heya "K"! oh so you still havent made a decision?... have you tried asking friends about a good leather specialist? hmmm.... wheres all the Aussie PFers here? Toosh needs some help guys!
  3. Ooooh, Thanks, addicted, darling:heart:

    No, I still haven't decided what to do yet....See, none of the people I know here are into designer bags, so they're pretty clueless...
  4. I wish I could give you some advice tooshies, but I haven't had any experience with leather repair.
    What about asking at David Jones in Elizabeth St for their recommendation? They may know of an expert leather repair guy.
    I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you
  5. I have no idea unfortunately, maybe try asking Cultstatus and see if they have any ideas? My marine W/E stitching down the middle is also loose now cuz of repeated abuse. I just ignore it.
  6. bern: Thanks so much, sweetie!!!:flowers: Actually, I didn't think of asking the DJ's! Yeah, maybe I'll go ask either the Prada or Fendi person there...

    Oow, asking Cult Status is a good idea, actually! Although I don't know how helpful they'd be, since I've never bought anything from them before, but it's worth a try....
  7. Happy to help Tooshies! Let us know how you go!
  8. Thank you, darling! I will!!:idea:
  9. I went asking Chanel, Ferragamo, Gucci, and Prada boutiques in CBD during my lunch break where they send their bags for repair.

    While most of them were unenthusiastic, they all pointed me out to go to Louis in Chiffley Tower on Elizabeth St, CBD. Apparently it's closed for renovation at the moment and won't reopen for another 2 weeks, but I'll definitely go there once it reopens again.

    I mean, if all of those luxury brands send their bags to them and they've never had any problems, reinforcing the thread on my City will be a piece of cake, I think....hopefully:smile:
