TRASH!

Stitching missing from various areas, cuts in the leather where they shouldn't be, sticky zipper. All in all a real "friday built" so I left it there.

Goin' into Melbourne again tomorra to recheck the stuff at Mars leathers. If no joy there then I'll start chipping away at the list of places you have all provided.

Thankyou for your help

Where are you, there is a leather shop in Toowoomba ( if that helps) that makes custom vests and I think jackets and friend of mine has got three vests from them so far and he is very happy with the workmanship.

I think with leather jackets you get what you pay for...........

Sometimes ya get lucky......I paid $400 for my jacket......when I'm sitting on a sporty my jacket sits a coupla inches below my belt line...(just right)...but I might have a different body shape to you Phil....

I still use my old Belstaff sometimes when touring and on the dirt bike.It's old and has had a floggin but no loose stitching,tears etc....amazin.....

Luv the Dririder (rallyX)? jackets too........so bloody comfy and practical.....

Yeah thats why I'm goin' back to Mars for another look. So far they seem to have had the best build quality out of all the brands I've looked at (in my price range)

Well there's certainly some truth in that

Hey Davidcar whats the name of the leather place in Toowoomba?
I need a bit of a mod done to my jacket and I thought I might take a ride up there on Saturday if he is open.
