Does anyone have any recommendations for break resistant thread? Aramark seems to have discontinued repair service for their uniforms, at least for FaucetCompany employees, and I have two or three pairs of pants with rips in the crotch area. I’ve had reasonable success repairing small tears of an inch or less, but longer ones won’t hold, even for one shift. Squat wrong once, and the thread breaks.
At first, I tried a general purpose thread, but no matter how close together I put the stitches, or how many times I went over the area, the repair wouldn’t hold. Then I switched to nylon monofilament thread, thinking it would be stronger, but no luck. I make the repair by hand, if that matters. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I’m almost ready to buy some thin gauge stainless steel safety wire.
