Please read this.

This is a price GUIDE only and assumes a "worst case scenario". We don't really like doing "from" prices as these can be deceptive. Please call us for an estimate. The final price can only be reached once we have finished but we will try to stay as close to estimate as possible. You will not pay more than the listed price unless something completely unforeseen is found. If we find something of this nature you will always be informed before you incur any extra cost.

Every job is different and has to be priced accordingly. ALL OUR WORK IS DONE TO RACE QUALITY unless specifically requested by the customer.

BYSON can accept credit / debit cards, but this will incure a 4% charge due to the way we arfe charged in our turn. Cash or cheques (payable to J.P. or G.J. Warr) are welcome. Payment can also be made by PayPal using the Send Money tab to Gwen(at) Sorry but we have to make a charge of £5.00 on Pay Pal UNLESS you can pay the charges at your end. Which I am told is possible.

Repairs can be accommodated by post or courier, alterations will require a personal visit. None of our prices include postage & delivery.

And this...

Multiple jobs are often significantly less expensive than indicated above.
For instance, a single pocket re-line is (maximum) 38.5, but any subsequent re-line done at the same time will only cost 10.00 ea.

This would also apply where other work is involved.
It all depends on the design of the garment. Talk to us.
*Please note that due to the way they are made some one piece suits are very time consuming to shorten or lengthen, if they have a single stretch panel running down the flanks and across the small of the back.
We have to remove the front and or rear panel, shorten them and then shorten the stretch panel from the top. The lining then has to be altered to match. Then the whole sheebang has to be put back together. This is the only way to do this whilst retaining both the strength and comfort of the garment. This can increase the cost quite considerably (up to £190 max) but as always we will do our best to keep the price down whilst maintaining quality.

** If you are buying a garment, be it jacket, 2 piece or 1 piece, which you KNOW is not going to fit, bear two things in mind. Firstly, we can make things smaller within reason, but bigger is harder and is more expensive if it can be done. Secondly, the more panels and seams there are involved, the more expensive the job will be. Prices for shortening and lengthening given above are baseline and apply to simple, practical designs.

Prices for let-out alterations to textile MC clothes can be as much as double the above due to the multiple layers involved.

ANY kit with bonded or sewn in armour may carry a surcharge oif up to £20.00 as it can be VERY time consuming to repair or alter, depending upon what needs to be done.

REGRETTABLY WE HAVE TO LEVY A SURCHARGE FOR WORK ON FEATHER FILLED ARTICLES. This is due to some of our employees & customers being allergic to feathers necessitating very strict control over cross contamination, resulting in jobs taking longer than similar work on non-allergenic materials.
