    As per the title, does anyone have a couple of pieces of brown waxed cotton going spare?
    The sleeves on my Barbour Beaufort have worn in several places, I've made repairs but it's starting to be more repair than sleeve!

    It's my work jacket and was second hand when I got it so don't really want to send it to Barbour for repair as it'll cost more than the coats worth.

    So I'm after a couple of squares of material to patch them, not got much to trade (try me if there's something you are after) but have cash. It's rustic brown but would be happy with any brown.

    Thanks

    Leather may be an easier option?

    Didn't think of leather, that would also work

    Ideally I'd need two pieces 6 inch by 6 inch (to look smart) but could do 6 inch by 4 inch at a push. Would wax cotton be easier to sew than leather? Would it need a hem to stop it fraying?
