carry out repairs and alterations to clothing of all kinds, specializing in motorcycle
gear (both leather and textile). In fact we can tackle anything from a ball gown to a
horse blanket. Though not at the same time or on the same machine.
We can repair classic & reproduction flying kit for instance. (See "About leathers" below). Equestrian and other sporting apparel (including waxed cotton) can also be repaired or altered.
have a (limited) stock of genuine wartime hides for the repair of RAF
(Irvin) flying jackets / flight suits. BUT the colour(s) we have are
the colours we have. Time on these jackets can be a problem, as we have
to clear the workshop to work on them (the fur gets EVERYWHERE), and
motorcycle kit tends to get priority.
can provide custom artwork on leathers and also custom work on jacket
linings etc. You can provide your own artwork, or we can work with you
to achieve your own individual look. Examples on the "Our
work" page. For repairs we
can work by post or courier. For complex alterations we are probably
going to need your body. We have found that no amount of home measurement
is as good and if this is the ONLY way you can go, we can't guarantee
anything. For complicated alterations, more than one visit may be needed
to attain the best result. Coffee and biscuits are free :-) We can do
some jobs "whilst you wait" but as this usually involves reorganizing
other work we have to surcharge for this at £10.00. Very sorry
but it can mess up our schedule something rotten. But... it will save
you a trip.
of our customers have suggested that our policy of quoting "maximum"
prices on our price lists could be losing us custom. We believe that
our policy is fairer than quoting "from" prices, and most
work comes in under the list price (see customer comments). For the
foreseeable future we will stick with this policy, but thanks for the
feedback guys. It's nice to know you care.
We have some bad news on the motorcycle boot front. The manufacturers are making these increasingly complex and hard to work on to such an extent that we have had to radically change our pricing for zip replacement. This means that from 1 May 2013 our standard charge for a new zip in a motorcycle boot will be £50.00, and then ONLY if they are leather. Our machine will not sew Lorica. We are sorry about this but it appears that for the last 18 months we have not actually been making anything on the job . For the time being the pricing for equestrian boots zips will stay the same.
