Denim Therapy experiences?

I have a number of Lucky Brand jeans (~$90 -- $120) that have developed small holes in the crotch. I've taken one pair to be repaired at a (very well regarded, expensive) tailor, only to have a tear develop along the corners of the patch.

I was ready to give up until I found out about Denim Therapy (mentioned here on AskMe). It almost seems too good to be true, but I'm looking for a little more input before I send my pants off to them.

Has anyone used this service before? It seems a little on the expensive side, but I'd be willing to pay $100 to repair 4 pairs of jeans; I'd definitely rather do that than buy another pair of pants that could just break again in a few months. I'm slightly concerned about how well they reinforce not just the hole but the area around it (all of my blown-out-crotch pants have a slightly gauzey look around the hole area)

Other suggestions about jeans repair and/or other reweaving services are welcome!

Yes, sadly the Distressed Crotch look is out.

Unless there are competing Denim Therapy camps, it sounds like it works.

You could try Denim Doctor (in LA, but I imagine they'll do mail order service). They do their own type of "invisible" repairs which are pretty durable.
