    Hello all,

    Can anyone recommend someone here in the UK, who can do a decent job replacing cuffs, waistband and zipper to A-2 and G-1s? All bit supplied, just need the work done properly.

    Byson did the work on my Cockpit and to be honest, I am not very impressed with the work done.
    Lining was a very orange colour (they would show pics of send samples, so this was a gamble to begin with), stitching quite untidy. Waistband was installed, creased, cuffs were good. Took ages, almost 2 months.
    Thank goodness it was not an original!

    Anyone else you can recommend?
    Thanks

    Oooh I know, but I would not dare bother Andrew with a repro job.
    If this was an original, or even a very top tier repro... I would go straight to Andrew.

    I am confident that a nice bottle of French Cognac included in the package will help a lot.
    With the Brexit all these French goodies will become very valuable... :)
    Andrew is a nice guy who appreciates good things. :)
