Lether repair melbourne

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' at netrider.net.au started by random101, Sep 4, 2008.

  1. Before we go on i have done the search and come up with the guy in oakliegh next to the butcher, but im looking for something a bit closer.

    People dont seem to recommend mars leathers are they too expensive? bad workmanship ?



    All i need is a small 5cent piece hole in the elbow and knees of my spyke leathers to be patched up.

    i have heard there is a leather repair shop on pier street altona? is it recommended?


    cheers

  2. Pier street do basic leather repairs to dress jackets, shoes, bags... etc.

    They should be up to doing a patch repair on your leathers if the hole isn't in a complicated location.


    Mars will do all repairs, but each repair is almost always a week turnaround. They have a guy that comes in at least once a week who does their repairs for them.

  4. matador leathers in Moorabbin is another option, you state you want something closer but given that Melbourne is a fairly big city, define closer, west, east, north at least.

  9. I had Mars replace a zip on a jacket of mine. They did a good job, but the guy behind the counter was a pr!ck - I was explaining that I need the WHOLE zip replaced but he was adamant that I only needed the slider done. When he finally stopped talking I showed him the problem, but he still made like I was being difficult. I'll be finding someone else next time.

  10. i went into mars, his quote was $100 for a small hole on the elbow, then he was complaining about the elbow armor and that it should be taken out to stop getting holes...


    i was just like ... right...
