    Hi I’ve this stitch on the collar of a jacket that id like to try cleaning up a tad, and I'm just wondering if I should try trimming/cutting it or just leave as is? Has anyone else has experienced something similar? I don’t want to mess with it if it’ll cause any damage, as it's pretty minor, but would love to clean up if I can... would love advice thanks :)

    Can't tell from the photo but looks mostly fine to me. Maybe leave it. Most handmade objects have a wonky stitch or scratch or defect of some kind. if it's a loose thread with the end unattached you can trim it without issue. Sometimes you can pull these lose bits and it often turns out to be just a piece of thread that got stuck.

    I have always trimmed these kind of things and never had a problem, Just make sure you use good scissors.
    If it is a poly thread you can even burn the ends.

    Thanks guys fixed it easily. It’s a sugar cane half belt... kind of similar to a Hercules. Amazing jacket! Stitch work on freewheelers unparalleled though
