Fix It Friday -  Fixing the Buckle of My Pants

Matter Pants fix

Have you been feeling the heat lately? The mercury over in Singapore has shot up to 30C and above. I took a look at my thermometer and it read a sizzling 35C! It's so difficult to walk out doors without your sunblock slapped on or even shades and a hat. I find it really uncomfortable to wear jeans in this heat too - I just stick to cotton tops and trousers. How have you been dealing with the heat so far?

Speaking of trousers, mine tend to need repairing at the bottoms or at the seams so I was really surprised when the part that needed repairing on one of my favourite pairs was the ...... buckle. Yes, really! The coating was coming off and it had started to rust - maybe I was too violent when it came to washing it or perhaps it was just bad luck. I dropped Matter Pants an email asking them if they knew where I could get a replacement buckle so I could fix my pants.   The next day, I got a lovely email saying that they would pop a replacement buckle in the mail and a few days later.....

It was really a lovely surprise to see the package with a nice note. I'm not sure if there would be any harm in having a rusty buckle on a garment but if any of you are interested in colouring textiles, you will know that rust can cause stains on fabric - sometimes nice ones, and sometimes not too nice!

This was a very easy fix - unpicking and then sewing on the new buckle. I had to remember to use a double strand of thread.

  1. It's nice to see a company being so happy to replace broken parts! A nice simple fix but worth it as you say to avoid rust stains!!

  2. Great job, it's wonderful to save something instead of throwing it away!
