Leathers repaired

Postby Jeremy » Tue Aug 21, 2012 11:06 am

Decided to send my roughed up leathers in this summer to see what Spyder Leatherworks could do for my suit. My Taichi suit had 3 decent low sides and 2 big high sides on it. Structurally it was great but the color was very damaged in quit a few places....pretty much thrashed.
Here are the pics.

After some TLC from Spyder Leatherworks. Unbelievable results. Suit looks almost brand new. Big thanks to Alexa and the Spyder crew!

The repair price is different for each suit. I took a couple pictures and emailed them in. Alexa got back to me right away with a quote. Was $250ish for my suit to get fixed. They did some minor stitching on a flap and colored it. Adding my name was extra. You pick the font and color and pay per letter. Really could not be more pleased with the communication and results.

You know, I emailed her a while back and tried to get some info for mine, but she never emailed back! Mario said they did kickass work with his, so I figured I'd give it a try. 250 aint bad for an essentially new suit. Mine is starting to get stiff from sweat and dry, and I conditioned it well last year, but didn't seem to help it. Your suit looks awesome -- did they add leather in some places, or just dye?

Just dye, dunlop patches and my name. Looks better than I could have imagined. You can tell when you look close that its a used suit but like you said it's "essentially" a new suit, especially from a distance.

They condition the suits there if you want them too as well.
