Leather Jacket/Pants Repair

I have an Alpinestars 2 piece suit that I have been wearing for over 2 years that I crashed in at TWS (Texas World Speedway) a few weeks ago, (low sided) and broke my collar bone. I was going to buy a new suit but upon further inspection of the damage to the suit it doesn't look all that bad.

The jacket has a 2'' tare on top of the left shoulder at the seam as well as a small tear (less than 1'') at the seam on the right side, there are some small tears where the elastic meets the leather under the arms and 1 small one near the right hand. The back there are a few places where the leather is rubbed thin down but its where my back protector is placed anyway. The pants appear to be in fine shape aside from a small tear where the elastic meets the leather on the right calf.

I have 2 questions, should I repair the suit or just buy a new one, and if so where is there a good shop in town that repairs suits?

bump although I doubt anyone will ever see it in here.
A motorcycle is a joy machine. It's a machine of wonders, a metal bird, a motorized prosthetic. It's light and dark and shiny and dirty and warm and cold lapping over each other; it's a conduit of grace, it's a catalyst for bonding the gritty and the holy.
