All jackets will have stitching, do you want it done in a mass produced factory by a 8 yr old Pakistan woman or by our very own local slyder who takes care and pride in her work.


Yes motorcycle apparel is usually triple stitched and slyder does a wonderful job at it. She gets any and all of my repairs, especially after she got me to my grom practice when I showed up 15 min before it started.

OP there are some touring jackets that have some adjustments in them to soak up the extra material but tailoring will be better overall.

In their country at that age they are women married off to someone their father picked and work a more than full time job while raising a family.

She's altered a mesh jacket of mine and you couldn't tell that the zippers didn't come from the factory like that... She's also done a 360 zipper on my 2 pc leathers. Needless to say I don't worry about those stitches at all.

Obviously, I was just making a point that normally your gear is mass produced by someone(or a machine) that won't take the time to do it as well as slyder will.

And while I haven't been to Pakistan, my brief stint in Afghanistan I saw that most women were treated like slaves.

Nope there are several tailors that will treat you right, without mailing then slyder is by far your best bet.
