Closest to you is Jesse's, a boot and leather repair place, in the same strip mall as Motorcycles Unlimited. They altered my track leathers and did a great job.

I've seen some of Slyders work and from what I hear shes very reasonable. Definitely cheaper than buying a new jacket.

Slyders, I've got a brand new (still have tags on) A* MX-1 that fits me perfectly except for the slightly too long sleeves and pant legs. Is that something you can customize? The sleeves end with some nice soft cuffs I really like, but might make alterations a bit more challenging.

I really like the suit, but I don't want to wear it unless I know it'll fit me great all around. In case I'm forced to sell it, I'd prefer to sell it brand new.

I'm working on a suit now with the same issue for the rider. It's a challenge but I like challenges. Let me take a look at it and see if you like any plan I can come up with.
