Leather tailor in the mid-atlantic?

    So by chance I happened to introduce my leather jacket to the pavement this weekend at NCBIKE. This is the first time I've been down in the jacket and it just so happened to burn through the stretch fabric on my forearm. Rather than chucking the entire jacket it was recommended that I find a leather tailor to fix it.

    I did a search on here and the recommendation from several years ago was lizzyleather, however following their link leads to a chinese site that appears to be selling items for mobile games of some sort. A google search suggested that they have closed permanently :(

    What would folks recommend as the go-to tailor that will be able to handle something more substantial than aesthetic stain removals.

    I'm in Northern Virginia. Shipping is no biggie since I'm not going to have the bike back up before the season ends.

    If it just stitching, you may want to do it yourself with some Kevlar thread. I've made that repair many times. And for areas that come apart, Try E6000 adhesive.

    That's great to know!
    Lizzy and Barnacle Bill are both excellent choices.

    Another option is Todd at Heroic Leathers. He's on Long Island. He did a nice job fixing up my suit last year.

    That place is ten minutes from me and I forgot all about them. It was a really nice saddle shop when I was growing up and not sure when it changed over. I’ve got a couple repairs I’ll take to him this or next week.

  15. Trackside Gear in Scottsville VA is fantastic. Tommy and his wife run it and are awesome.

    I dropped my suit off at outback they can do basic stuff, but not major alterations. Haven’t picked it up yet

    Post a review of service once you get it back. Thanks

    Don’t go to outback leather then, just got my suit back with the patches and am not impressed at all, wouldn’t trust them to do anything remotely larger.
