I picked up this jacket at GoodWill last month. It had three holes in the sleeve, but I thought it might be worth trying to repair because of the brand.
I've now started the repair, and think that with some careful attention, it'll be a success. But before I put in the time to finish, I thought I'd ask - is it worth the effort?
It's an immaculately-made jacket, but not young. It's silk-lined polyester (why?!), and black with pin stripes. Is the shape outdated? The length? The style? Does it fit me properly? Are the sleeves a current width? (Didn't really get a good shot of them though...)
Worn here over a shirt and a shell. I'd most likely wear it over something of similar weight and thickness.
I lightened all the pictures to try to make it so you can see detail

Thanks for your help and thoughts on this potential project!
