BYSON LEATHER carry out repairs and alterations to clothing of all kinds, including motorcycle gear (both leather and textile). In fact we can tackle anything from a ball gown to a horse blanket. Though not at the same time or on the same machine. Over the years we have increasingly specialised in vintage flying kit and carry out work on modern reproduction kit as well as wartime originals. Some of the manufacturers of these reproduction recommend us for alterations - they simply don't have the time to carry them out and manufacture is NOT the same as alteration. We SPECIALISE in alteration and repair.
We can repair classic & reproduction flying kit for instance. (See "About leathers" below). Equestrian and other sporting apparel (including waxed cotton) can also be repaired or altered.
We have a stock of genuine wartime hides for the repair of RAF (Irvin) flying jackets / flight suits. BUT the colour(s) we have are the colours we have. Time on these jackets can be a problem, as we have to clear the workshop to work on them (the fur gets EVERYWHERE), and motorcycle kit tends to get priority. Note however that we carry out functional REPAIRS on such garments. We don't do museum quality restoration, which is a very different thing and not something we feel qualified to do.
We can provide custom artwork on leathers and also custom work on jacket
linings etc. You can provide your own artwork, or we can work with you
to achieve your own individual look. Examples on the "Our
work" page. For repairs we can work by post or courier.
For complex alterations we are probably going to need your body. We
have found that no amount of home measurement is as good and if this
is the ONLY way you can go, we can't guarantee anything. For complicated
alterations, more than one visit may be needed to attain the best result.
Coffee and biscuits are free :-) We can do some jobs "whilst you
wait" but as this usually involves reorganizing other work we have
to surcharge for this at £10.00. Very sorry but it can mess up
our schedule something rotten. But... it will save you a trip.
