Give Jim Marcum a call at 630-815-2186 or [email protected].

He altered my new A* Bat's and did a hell of a job.

I was told that they closed. They did do great work. I hope they are still open.

The store front closed yes, but that Jim guy used to work there and is still doing leather work. I am taking my suit to him to get altered.

He does do great work. The 630-815-2186 still works. But the new business # is 630-847-0935

Yeah, Leathersmiths are out of business. Jim is the guy that worked at Leathersmiths, he open his own business early in the year. Give him a call.
