Worn out belt loops on mens wool dress pants

Hi ,

I can add a photo later but does anyone have any comments on potentially repairing worn out back belt loops on wool pants? I'm fairly sure that this has resulted from wearing a belt and sitting on a chair with a back that over time causes wearing on the outer sides of the belt loop and the outside material gets worn down. This has resulted in the end of many of my pairs of pants.

Any advice is appreciated.

Is there extra fabric folded under your pant hems?

Likely. I'll have a look when I get home tonight.

So, did u find extra fabric somewhere so that u can make a new belt loop?
You can try using a lumbar support cushion on ur chair.

Thank you. Yes, there is extra fabric that is hemmed. I suppose I can try to fix this myself given that the alternative is to retire the pants.

If you are not a good sewer, take them to a tailor.
