I put a pair of leather JR pants into a highly-recommended leather specialist in Vancouver to have them shortened last October. I'm still waiting for them, despite being promised a few times that they'd be ready "in a few weeks".
Now, I know the old maxim "You can't rush an artist"...but hell's bell's...5 months?
I could have killed a cow and made a pair myself in 5 months.
I'm going to pick them up next week.
Has anyone got any recommendations based on personal experience of a place that will do the alterations in a reasonable time frame?
