BYSON LEATHER carry out repairs and alterations to clothing Byson Logoof 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.Smiley
For ordinary (fashion / street) clothing we have a web site here

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.

We 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.

We have just finished work on a USAAF B3 (1942 pattern) jacket. There is more information HERE

We 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.
If needed we may be able to lend you kit whilst yours is being worked on.

We are situated in Hertfordshire, UK, between Royston and Ware, and close to the Silver Ball Cafe, a well-known biker meeting place on the A10.

Our customers
are situated anywhere between The Isle of Lewis and Cornwall.
And Toronto, Ontario. See our customer comments page for a "feel" for our service.

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.

Please note - T&Cs. and other information - payment details, some Frequently Asked Questions etc, are HERE
Hours of business: 08:30 to 17:30 Mon. to Friday. 09:00 to 16:00 Saturday.
We close from 13:00 to 13:30 for lunch.

Other times by appointment. Please call to arrange fittings etc.

WHAT DON'T WE DO ?
We aren't boot makers, so though we can usually fix boot legs (for instance zips etc.), for serious boot work, we recommend talking to a specialist. Pricing for equestrian boot zips is approximately £5.00 per row of stitching, + zip. Please ensure that equestrian boots are cleaned before you bring them to us. If we have to do it we will have to make a £5 charge. We don't make leathers.

We also have some stuff for sale, including some good kit, all of which has been gone over and sorted out. Check out the "For Sale" button below. We also have some sewing machines for sale HERE
