Another vote for clean gear.
I don't know if he does alterations, but for making your stuff look like new the guy is amazing.

I bring my white leather jacket in yearly.
He cleans the hell out of it and even conditions the leather and sends it home in a nice bag to keep it fresh.

I'll try and stop in this week to see what his hours are. If I recall it's a one man store.

I used Lizzy Leathers after a big off. Had a big hole in one of the accordion panels, lots of other holes in the leather and stretch panels, burst seams, etc. I think she did good work, and most importantly it was fast (I had a tight deadline before a race weekend). She stayed in contact via text throughout. My only minor complaint was that she sewed the pocket for the knee armor back in a bit funny.

Make sure you give her very clear instructions on the extent of the repairs. I got the sense that she would only fix what was specifically requested, and would have skipped over more minor stuff if I hadnt pointed it out.

I've used Lizzy before for adding a zippeer to a two piece. Zipper was fucking stout and the work seemed great. Never had an issue with it. Only downside is adding shipping costs onto cost of work.
