Clothing woes

I have a black jacket that I wear frequently.  So frequently, in fact, that I wore through both of the elbows, a fact that I discovered a couple of days ago when I threw the jacket on the bed and realized I could see holes in the left sleeve.  On examining the right sleeve, I realized it had a matching hole.

So is it worth fixing?  Jackets are so cheap, but I rather like this one.  It's lightweight and simple, and there's a certain emotional attachment to it because it was a gift from my mother-in-law.  So I went onlne and found some cheap iron-on patches.  I decided to order them and attempt a repair.  If it turns out well, great!  I can keep wearing this jacket.  If it doesn't, well...the jacket had a good run, since I've had it for five or six years now.

But now that I've managed to wear holes in my jacket's elbows, can I be a professor?
