I'm trying to get some leather repaired - it just happens to be attached to a piece of clothing. Aka my cream full seat leather breeches that I show in.
They're about 15 years old and the leather on one part started getting a hole in it, and then the hole got bigger.. and now well, it's giant.
Here is my dilemma - I took it to my seamstress, and she said she couldn't do it so she said to talk to a shoe or leather repair guy. So I went to one guy and he thought I was crazy and told me to go to a seamstress. -_-
So, I have two options. I got my boot zippers put in by the guy that made the batman suit so I think he'd be willing to repair breeches, but he mauled my boots and screwed up the zippers. So I'm not really willing to give him my business again. Then there's a saddle/leather repair guy that my saddle fitter uses and highly recommends that I'm thinking of trying. But I'm thinking he is going to charge a lot.
Buying new breeches is not an option, plus they are in super shape otherwise, all the other leather is fine. And they get what like, 5 rides in them a year?
