Lincolnshire leather cleaning/alterations

Post  dudeofrude on Fri Aug 07 2015, 20:22

Hey guys I've just swapped my too small leather 2 piece for a too big in places 1 piece. I'm just wondering if anyone knows any good alteration places in the Lincolnshire area? I need the stomach and backside bits brought in bit

Also how do I go about cleaning them? They are secondhand so I feel a bit gross wearing them and I was planning on dry cleaning but they have a label inside that says no dry cleaning? I've got the stuff to clean the outside it's just the old sweat and farts on the inside that bother me lol

Hi,
I had a set of one piece leathers repaired a few years ago at a place in Hull and was very happy with the work. Should have the details at home, but away all week.
They were a pair of Corner leathers I had a high-sided in Shocked Had the damaged logo on the leg replaced with the word CANNOT. Most folk don't notice!
Looking on line I've found this link:

I think the shop in hull is Speedsport, i had some leathers altered there many years ago, there is also a lady in Dragonby near Scunthorpe who is supposed to be very good, could find her details if you need them.

We'll notice now.

Good luck with the repair hunt Dude.

My leathers have obviously shrunk as the front slide clip (above the zipper) burst free recently.

My mother in law is a bit of a seamstress so I've handed the smelling offending article over to her.

Wish I'd taken the plunge and got a set of Crow tree leathers when they were still available. I know Lee got some and was pretty impressed with them.

On the cleaning side of things, can anyone recommend a decent leather cleaner & conditioner? I've tried autoglym in the past but it made them squeak like hell
