Props to Leathersmiths

They did a nice job. Suit fits well and they got me in and outta there real quick. They were very accomodating to me having a track day this weekend. Nice to show up and get my measurements there instead of having to mail them in somewhere. Big thanks to them!

Good resource to know about.

Where are they located? You told me but I forgot.

When are you leaving for Grattan?

Altered one. They had to widen the leg area and put a slight extension on the connection of the zipper that hooks to the pants to give more leaning room.
