Trafalgar braces past their prime...

Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to acquire several pairs of Trafalgar Woven Limited Edition Silk Braces. The years have taken their toll, and the edges/borders on some of these are quite worn, enough that they really don't look their best any longer. Specifically, they are threadbare, uneven and frayed on the edges, and are actually wearing through from the backside where they had rested over my shoulders.

Nothing lasts forever, least of all artisan woven silk braces, but the question is if there is some better fate than good-willing them.

Does anyone have any suggestions, ideas, or experience to share as to what they've done when their own have reached a similar, unwearable state?

I dunno, maybe you could keep the hardware and make some madras or seersucker or some other GTH brace?
Firedancer, that sounds like a great idea for worn braces! I'd have never thought of something like that until I came by this thread. Digger, that does sound like a good idea for your Trafalgars. That's probably what I'd do, just keep the artisan woven silk. That's not something you'd want to throw out.
