Patch and Repair

As I stood in line at  Hardware Hell on the boulevard also known to me as the Boulevard of the Damned (another story)...
could not help but to notice this gents patch and repair.

Perhaps his wife lovingly found a similar polyester fabric to patch or to let them out a as his girth widened with age.

I took a snap with the hope no one would notice.

The hand-sewn repair was noticed when I downloaded the pic.
