Stitched Review

Stitched will appeal most if you perform wearing jeans, or other casual pants. Because, after all, who would walk around with an apparent tear in their nice dress slacks? But aside from that it's quite versatile--four handling methods are taught--so the rest of your wardrobe doesn't much matter.

You'll face about 20 minutes of arts and crafts to get Stitched ready to learn, but nearly everything you need is included and you're given a good number of choices about how to best customize the gimmick to fit your needs. In fact, most of the 50 minute disc is dedicated to construction, so I don't think you'll have any problem following along.

Kolle's explanations are clear, and it's evident he has some real performance time behind this effect as he makes it look effortless. Despite what I considered to be in-depth coverage on the DVD, there's a slip of paper inside the package that offers another dozen handling tips. This is a good thing, but it certainly would have been better to include them on the DVD, right?

Kolle also gives some history of the trick, but I was surprised that Paul Harris' "Peeler" wasn't mentioned, especially given PH's role in marketing Stitched. But if you're familiar with the Harris trick, don't think that I just gave away the farm. There is a lot more to Stitched than meets the eye. (The DVD starts with a notice that you should watch all of it, and I heartily agree. Don't be tempted to think you've got a full understanding after the first few minutes.)

If you think this is your kind of trick, or you're just looking for an excuse to have strangers rub your leg, then you'll be happy with Stitched. It's practical, although not simple, and the magic is clear and visually interesting.

Manufacturer's Description:

THAT TORN HOLE IN YOUR PANTS JUST BECAME YOUR BEST FRIEND.

You've been walking around with a semi-fashionable TORN HOLE in your PANT'S LEG. You hold your genuinely EMPTY HAND above the torn hole for just a moment..and the HOLE INSTANTLY HEALS ITSELF! Your HAND is still GENUINELY EMPTY. The hole is really GONE. Your pants can be IMMEDIATELY EXAMINED (which can be high entertainment in itself).

There's been a few attempts at solving the "Torn Pants" problem in the past..but nothing comes close to Alex Kölle's SUPER EASY, EMPTY HANDS solution. You can adapt the custom gimmick to any style or color jeans, pants or shorts. You can even use a SPECTATOR'S HAND TO HEAL THE HOLE! And the visuals of STITCHED are PERFECT. There's literally nothing to see but the STUNNING ILLUSION of an empty hand instantly healing the ripped pants!
