Leather And Lace

Great job on the repairs to my Ride Smart Taichi suit. They were quick and called when finished. I should of taken my Alpinestar gloves to them. No follow up, longer than expected, and the fingers are tight after the repairs. I do not understand how they could restitch my gloves inside the previous stitching and expect me to be happy. I will wet them down and go for a ride Sunday and see how they turn out.

I'm glad we completed your suit to your satisfaction!
About your A* gloves... Did we do repairs to them? If we did and you're not satisfied please bring them back!

Leather and Lace did a nice repair for us on an Alpinestars leather jacket last summer... we thought we were going to have to toss it, but they did an awesome job... I'd recommend them to anyone

A little thread jack here...

Slyder,
Do you do alterations to leathers?
I have a set that fit pretty well but a couple areas are kinda bunchy. Can you make em fit like Valentino Rossi's fit him?
And will that make me able to ride like him?
PM if you want to take it out of this thread.

I assume he wishes he would have taken them to you. So my guess would be no, he took them somewhere else before this recent repair he is so happy about.

BTW, the backpack is still awesome that you made me.

AWESOME! I had fun making the back pack while at the track during the 6 hour big bike race.... I was sewing away in the trailer with the soothing sounds of bikes racing by...

Alpinestar wanted the gloves back. They stitched the three middle finger smaller. I will wet them down and go for a ride.
